This year, the men got significantly better ratings than the women.

The decline in the popularity of women's tennis in the U.S. (and I think probably around the world) is a serious problem that needs to be addressed and I'm not really sure what can be done.
Yeah I really have no idea what can be done. I personally find men's tennis so boring but I guess the world doesn't agree with me.
