    tennis fan

    Please check if they're correct and natural. My gut feeling says most of them are wrong but I'm not quite sure.

    1 I've been a football fan (for) almost my entire life. Some years ago, I have/I did become a tennis fan, too.

    2 I used to be exclusively a football fan most of my life but for some years I have/I did also become a tennis fan.

    3 I was an only football fan until a few years ago but then I became/have become interested in tennis in addition.

    4 First, I was only a football fan but some years ago, I (have) found my interest for tennis as well.

    5 When I became a tennis fan some years ago, I had already been a football fan (for) almost my entire life.
