Since the last tournaments of the 1996 season.

When Stuttgart was a Super 9 played on Indoors. And the Masters was played in Hannover.

Not until 2004 wimbledon onwards did I start following every tournament. Before 2004, it was just watching wimbledon and nothing else.

80's and 90's.

I get bored sometimes though! LOL

I'm the same with basketball, football..

If one team or player starts to really dominate, then I get tired of it. I lose interest in seeing the same team win over and over again--even my favorites sometimes.

Late 70s. The first generation I watched was Borg, Connors, Nastase, Vilas, Gerulaitis, Tanner; then McEnroe.

I started really watching in the early 90's.

I have some foggy memories of matches between Graf and Navratilova at Wimbledon, USO, and RG in the late 80's.
