I'd still watch Queens/Wimbledon but that would be it. I remember trying to watch the French one year in the Henman era and getting bored very quickly.
My early years of Wimbledon watching were more focused on the female players. Still remember being gutted one year when Jana Novotna lost in the ladies final so maybe I'd still watch more of that.
I don't know if I would have a different favourite player. I remember having a massive crush on Andy Roddick one of his first years at Wimbledon! He was 19 I think and pretty cute
(still had all his hair, lol) but Andy (Murray) is the first player I've gone beyond traditional media sources (TV/newspapers/magazines) for info.
As an aside I remember Tim (and Lucy) being featured in my J17 magazine one year. Though can't say I particularly remember him being classed as a heartthrob by the media?!
I've always had a favourite group/TV show/actor on the go so I'm sure some of those things would take more prominence and Wimbledon watching would just be a nice part of the summer, a ritual if you like, nothing more.
