Roland Garros 1982 - 17-year-old Mats winning his first Grand Slam. Purely girlish interest back then, I loooved his blond curls.
More serious in the late 80s & early 90s and - after a long gap - excessively since 2005.

Default Re: In which decade did you start watching tennis?

I originally got into tennis in the late 80's, especially liked Yannick Noah, Boris Becker was my second favorite of the men, rooted for Martina to win and Steffi to lose. Got chased away as a viewer by Monica Seles and her grunt (They should have stopped it then and we wouldn't be stuck with the grunting and screaming nightmare we have now), stayed away because of Agassi, and Pete bored me. Started watching again a little around 2005 when Pete was gone and discovered I liked the current #1, then became totally wrapped up in tennis again last August, far more into it than I'd ever been before.
