ESPN2 Reports Ratings Rise For Wimbledon

ESPN2 Reports Ratings Rise For Wimbledon

McEnroe,Drysdale,Carillo By Tennis Week
06/23/2005

Wimbledon has been a ratings winner for ESPN2 through the first two days of the fortnight.


After two days of all-day coverage, ESPN2 has averaged 417,000 households for the nine hours of live coverage (8 a.m. 5 p.m.). That represents an increase of 18 percent over last year (355,000).

In addition, Wake Up to Wimbledon, the one-hour studio show that starts each day at 7 a.m. has seen an increase of 61 percent, from 44,000 homes in 2004 to 71,000 this year.

Thats good. Hopefully they will make it only ESPN2 and no ESPN Classic.

Oh ESPN! What did they expect??? Fans of EVERY sport ALWAYS vastly prefer LIVE COVERAGE. Finally this year they woke up to the fact that yes, tennis fans are the same as other sports fans, and they deserve the same respect. Let's hope last year's nightmare of tape will never, ever return.
