One word answer: empty

Well not completely but there's no denying that many of the highs and lows are attributable to our Andy.  I've never ever felt the same about another sportsperson or any other public figure come to that.  What is it about him that has this effect on us all?  Topic for another parallel thread?  Or perhaps one has already been started. 
But yes bbh I'm wallowing away  yay

I wouldn't be a tennis fan if Andy had never existed. Like many people in the UK, I used to watch a bit of Wimbledon but that was it for the rest of the year. It's only when Andy came along that I started to properly follow the sport.

Same as myself. I used to watch Wimbledon as a kid so that helped a lot to like the game but would only watch it when i could be bothered. I then heard on the news one night that a certain chap from Dunblane had won the junior U.S open. Fast forward to Queens 2005 & have been hooked ever since.
I won't get rid of sky sports now for the ATP events.

When he retires this site will be rendered useless.

I hope not.

I would definitely watch tennis but not be a tennis fan, just like you.

I meant if he'd NEVER existed.
  Is this a philosophical trap? No doubt some other fascination would fill the hole.

This has touched quite a nerve with me when i read this thread, i straight away started wondering about the shooting at his school and the possibility that if any number of things had gone differently, Andy could have just been another forgotten victim of this terrible tragedy, it's bad enough thinking about all the futures that were wiped out by a madman, but scary to think that this wonderful victory on Sunday might never have happened.

  Don't go there my friend. Maybe if that atrocity had never happened Andy wouldn't be the player he is.

My blood pressure might have been lower on Sunday. I might not have discovered the true meaning of a near death experience (sort of!), but it wouldn't be half as exciting.

I'd probably have a smaller swear word vocabulary as well, or rather, the few I have might not have been yelled at the TV during matches so often over the years.

Pre-Andy I could watch Tim and get a bit caught up in it (seriously, the way he talks sometimes you'd think he'd never been dragged into unnecessary five setters Whistle), but deep down I preferred Agassi. Even then I could watch and be fairly neutral. I suppose if Andy had never existed I could have stayed like that, or lost interest. I don't think I would have lost interest. However, there was and is Andy and neutrality is out of the question.

If Andy really had never existed I think I'd have been a slightly bonkers Ferrer fan Smile

 I would be less crazy.   Think.        The tennis tour would be so boring without Andy.  He is genuinely my only fav player.      I guess when Andy does retire we can look back and realise what a great player he was and what a brilliant career he had.

When Andy does retire he won't be forgotten by any of us, he will be revered and whatever he chooses to do next i will keep watching and listening. I doubt he will go into commentary, i don't think that would suit him, he hasn't got the voice for it the poor lad, even he would admit that.

The thing is, when Andy is gone, Novak and Rafa will also be gone, i hope they all remain good friends when they hang up their racquets. Tennis to me has been about the big 4, new players will emerge to contest slams but i'm not so sure i will remain as interested as i am now, i'll have to wait and see i guess.

I don't think commentary would be Andy's thing. Could you imagine a player doing something he didn't like? I can't imagine Andy mincing his words Smile.

I have the feeling that when the end does come, years and years from now I mean, he'll go into coaching. I could see him backing out of the public eye and coaching kids. I think he'd be great at that, but he's got things to do first, like winning a few more slams.

I would have still hated Federer so I would probably support Djokovic and Nadal. That and Laura Robson would probably be a lot bigger.
