Mariah isn't even that well known outside of the US anyway. Maybe back in the mid-nineties or like 2005.

Serena is indeed more popular than Roger in the States, due to her appearances on People,tabloids, tv shows, reality shows, commercials, clothing selling tv channels, even news about her scandals, activities..... She is not as valued as Roger when it came to endorsements though, same when comparing to Phil Mickelson.

It's not like people have forgotten about her

She's certainly passed her prime and will never win a Grand Slam but now she can ease into living legend status.

Re: Who is more famous globally:Serena Williams or Mariah Carey?

Thank you Vika

I actually skimmed right past this thread earlier, thinking it said "Who is more famous globally: Serena Williams or Maria Sharapova" What type of question is this?

That's not to say she makes more endorsements or is more loved within the tennis community, but in the US it's not even close. Almost everyone knows Serena (barring those who live in some backwater village in the middle of nowhere), and mainly people who follow tennis know Roger
