Re: Conflicted about the future of tennis
I always follow tennis, but there's definitely a huge variation in passion. I loved Ashe (I was very young at the time and had no idea of how important he was--to me, he was a tall, kind of skinny guy who wore glasses and used big words, which was very important when you were a tall, skinny guy who wore glasses and used big words and were desperately trying to find a sport at which you did not suck), the Navratilova, then Mecir and Bassett, then Martin, but I never, ever really had the kind of passion I felt for Ashe and Navratilova. I thought it was old age and maturity, until I caught some highlights of a Gold Medal match in Sydney between my then sort of fave Venus and this kind of goofy cute, blond-banged Russian kid...
Well, the moral of the story is never say never.
