Yes, I'm already missing Fed now and he's still the #2 ranked player. So I can only imagine how much I'll miss him when he'll truly be gone. I don't have any other faves on the male side either. I'll still follow the ATP because I love tennis itself, but it's not the same as when you have someone you're rooting for. I guess I'll just have to be patient until someone else turns that switch in me because I don't consciously choose faves.
But you are right in that Fed or Maria will never truly be gone because in a way they are almost bigger than the game itself. That's my biggest fear when it comes to Woz - that the day she retires will be the last I'll ever hear from her.
At least if she stays with Rory I can perhaps catch a glimpse of her every now and then when he plays golf.
