I rooted for Connors and the last ten years or so for Federer, but no one else in between. I liked to see all those other guys (Becker, Edberg, Sampras, Agassi, etc) play as well, but I didn't particularly care who won during their era and I suspect that it will be the same again once Federer retires.
for me, i was a hingis fan since like 2000 or something, but then maria came along and there's nobody i love more than her and i can't see myself following tennis as religiously as i do now once she retires.
who knows though, maybe someone will come along eventually.
