Re: Has the WTA fandom affected personal relationships?
No. My younger son and I do tennis stuff together. He's a teenager, so it's actually nice that we have tennis to bond over.
(Well that sounds a little melodramatic--it's really all normal growing up and asserting his own individuality at all the regular stuff--but the tennis is nice).
My dad woke me up one Sunday morning 15 years ago with a tennis racquet and said, "You take tennis lessons every week now."
