Survey: Tennis now 2nd most popular sport on TV in Europe
From ITF's "This week":
The results from the latest
“European Sport Sponsoring 2002” study by SPORT+MARKT
AG has shown tennis to be the second favourite TV sport in
Europe. The growth in popularity of tennis has seen it overtake
Formula 1 to move into the second spot behind soccer as
one of the favourite televised sports in the five major European
countries of Germany, England, France, Italy and Spain."
Oh that's good, I can't stand Formula 1. Let's face it, the drivers don't determine it, it's decided by who's got the most money to improve their cars. It makes Curling looks thrilling. I read recently that ITV's viewing figures for Formula 1 this year are very low, and they may even only show highlights of some Grand Prixs next season.
