According to an official statistics from CCTV(China Central Televison).Considering it was at around 10:00am,most people were at work,even more people may watch this later.So,probably more than 20%(about 200million) of Chinese people had watched the match.:)

So,Li Na officialy becomes a super star in China:worship:

Tennis is still far from popular in China. CCTV 5 (China's main sports channel) broadcasts more snooker games than tennis..

I guess out of 1.3 billion people that's pretty good.

Well, the Chinese TV people are hardly the only ones to inflate their viewership--the ratings for the Superbowl and the World Cup, for example, will be grossly inflated as well.

However, I think it's safe to say there were a huge number of TV sets in China tuned to this event, and thank God (or whomever you personally choose, including Li and Serena) that it was a pretty entertaining, if not always pretty, match.

While many of them will probably lose interest now that the Chinese woman are out, hopefully some fell in love with the sport and will become fans and players. The Nas--and NA-GOATs--of the next generation. ;)

(And Lin Lins, too :wavey:)

Wow, this just shows how popular Serena Williams is!

100 million people in China watched her play Jie in the Wimbledon semi and now 100 million watch her play Li.

Serena really is the most popular female tennis player ever. Hell the most popular tennis player overall. I mean who else can get those ratings?

:devil:

The ratings were not for Serena, but for the China Doll. :wavey:

So,Li Na officialy becomes a super star in China:worship:I called a very close friend in China after the match and she did not even know anything about it - she is not a tennis fan but still I was surprised she had not heard that a Chinese player was doing so well.

This is a market the WTA really has their eye on.
And so does Sony, the main WTA sponsor.
The WTA wants Li and Jie to do well and become famous and tv stars in China

That's astounding. The same night's rating on ESPN is 0.9 -- a paltry 1.3 million Americans watched ESPN's prime time telecast(9:30PM EST-1:30am) Wednesday night, the night of both Women's SF.

It's time to move the AO to China, or at least give China a 5th slam. This is a huge potential market.

The WTA has a new Super Tier I in China.
That could become one of the big revenue producers on the tour.
This is an emerging world financial power, and the government supports sports.

[I felt sure she would have heard about it though even though she is not a sports fan]
