I thought it was very nice of Serena

I thought it was very nice of Serena after the doubles when she reminded Suarez/Pascual to curtsey before leaving center court.

The players were walking in front of Serena/Venus and had forgotten to curtsy, when Serena quickly stopped them.

Also for those who still think people aren't interested in watching the Williams sisters - the doubles did better than the men's finals in the ratings

Go Venus
Go Serena



July 8, 2002


WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- The Wimbledon doubles final won by Serena and Venus Williams drew higher TV ratings than the men's singles final.

NBC's broadcast Sunday averaged a 3.1 overnight rating from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. EDT, up slightly from the 3.0 for the network's show that included the men's final last year, when rain pushed the match to Monday and it was aired on tape delay.

No. 1-ranked Lleyton Hewitt's 6-1, 6-3, 6-2 victory over David Nalbandian drew ratings that ranged from 2.6 to 3.1 each half hour until noon Sunday.

But NBC's top half-hour ratings for its show -- 3.8 to 4.0 -- came later in the afternoon, while the Williams sisters were beating French Open champions Paola Suarez and Virginia Ruano Pascual in straight sets.

The women's singles final show Saturday produced a 4.6 overnight rating.

The rating is the percentage of all homes with TVs, whether or not they are in use. Overnight ratings measure the 53 largest TV markets in the United States, covering about 65 percent of the country.

Thumbs up Contrary To The Unpopular Belief

Adell - I mentioned it before that for all the talk wherein we learned that supposedly noone digged the way the Sisters play tennis - their doubles matches always seemed to pack the stands. Of course the other day, they were playing Anna & Chanda - but still.

I noticed that back in the day when they were winning the mixed and the ladies.

Good point indeed.

I think that quote actually goes:

"Everybody wants to beat a Williams sister...who wouldn't?- Serena Williams"

Nope anton, I have seen the show at least 5 times and Serena definitely says "wouldn't you"
