How seriously do you take your tennis?

As a fan, how seriously do you take tennis. If you visit a tournament do you try to watch the main top10 players, or do you make an effort to watch players you have never heard of, or seen playing before.
What if there were players you disliked, would you still take the opportunity to go see them, or would you not make the effort, surely if youíre a serious fan youíll watch no matter who is playing, because after all is said and done itís the game you love, isnít it.
If your sitting at home watching the television, and the sports channel is covering the latest tournament, would you change channel if your favorite player wasnít on-court. Sometimes various television networks provide an Interactive service were you can view a number of matches, so if they were covering say 4 ATP matches, and you preferred WTA, would you switch over, or vice-versa.
Thereís some players I just cannot watch, even if they were in a Slam Final, how about you?
One time , an age ago, I would even watch Pamela Shriver!

At tournaments, I really like to make an effort to see all players, but especially the up and coming ones. I do try to avoid seeing the top names just because all the networks show them often, and I don't get many opportunities to see the lower ranked players.

Funnily enough, the tournaments I enjoyed the most were some of the ITF tournaments I had the chance to pay a visit to

Sigh.
