Shut up about ratings. I went to the US 2 times and I was shocked by the amount of ads on TV. That you still watch TV is beyond me.

I watched until the 4th game when I knew
it was gonna be a sleeper and it was.

Tuned back to ctach the trophy presentation.

Mary's speech was the best part of that
entire telecast IMO.


Now, the men's final was much more exciting
for me. It was an actual match!

I believe the women's rating was
like a 1.9 and it was a 2.0 for the men.

Yea, I really enjoyed the Men's final. It was like watching a Serena's final with any player on the other side of the net.

TV Ratings for French Open Stays Steady

The Associated Press

NBC's telecast of Rafael Nadal's victory over Mariano Puerta in the men's final of the French Open on Sunday drew an overnight rating of 2.0, close to the usual number for a major tennis final without Americans.

Belgian Justine Henin-Hardenne's victory over Mary Pierce of France in the women's final on Saturday drew a 1.9 rating. Both championship matches earned a share of six.

Last year's men's final at Wimbledon, when American Andy Roddick lost to Roger Federer, drew a 3.6 rating on NBC. But the U.S. Open final, in which Federer of Switzerland beat Australian Lleyton Hewitt, drew a 2.5 on CBS.

Last year's all-Argentinian final in the French Open had a rating of 2.1

The rating is the percentage of all homes with TVs, whether or not they are in use. The share is the percentage of in-use televisions tuned to a given show. Overnight ratings measure the 55 largest TV markets in the United States, covering nearly 70 percent of the country.

can you really go by that? Was Serena's demolition of Martina Hingis at the US Open boring? Looking at the scoreline only would suggest it was but people who saw the match knew something else because Serena was on fire that day and it's always interesting to see someone put on a stellar performance.

having said that the final was boring but I mean if you were lucky not to have watched it why complain about it.

Does anyone know if the 1.9 includes the whole broadcast, or just the women's final?

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

You are right about that. That match between Serena and Martina was great especially Serena's shot making. Yea, so you are correct. It was still boring whichever way you look at it. (the FO).

you know, I'm not surprised the ratings are so low on that FO final.
It was so boring. It was on clay too. Clay isn't a real surface. and you know, looking at the score that final was quite boring, in fact I think it was dull. Yeah, come to think of it, it was... watching it again, still think it was. So boring.
