French Open: Rain-Delayed Men’s Final Down From Last Year; Women’s Final Flat

Despite being interrupted due to rain, Sunday’s French Open Men’s Final earned solid numbers for NBC.

Before being rained out, the Rafael Nadal/Novak Djokovic French Open Men’s Final drew a 2.4 overnight rating on NBC Sunday morning — down 8% from Nadal/Federer last year (2.6), but up 50% from Nadal/Soderling in 2010 (1.6).

The complete telecast window on NBC earned a 2.0 overnight rating.

The 2.4 for Sunday’s match is tied as the second-highest for the French Open Men’s Final since Agassi/Medvedev in 1999 (4.0).

On Saturday, the Maria Sharapova/Sara Errani Women’s Final drew a 1.7 overnight, equaling both Na/Schiavone last year (1.7) and Schiavone/Stosur in 2010 (1.7).

The 1.7 is tied as the second-lowest for the French Open Men’s Final since at least 1998. Only the ’09 Kuzentsova/Safina final (1.4) drew lower numbers.

Re: French Open Ratings

Quite bizarre to see Sharapova's star power can't beat Schivone's finals.

Re: French Open Ratings

Not surprising. Who was in it that anyone would want to see?

Now look at the graph and look at which year had the highest ratings for the women:

Re: French Open Ratings

I've said this in another thread. I'm not trying to bash Maria at all but her fans vastly overstate her popularity in the United States. The Williams sisters are certainly more controversial and therefore are less marketable to middle America than Maria is but many more people know them and will watch their matches than Maria's matches.

Re: French Open Ratings

Change the title to american tv ratings. I guarantee in britain if murray got to a final, the ratings will be the higest ever since he is british. Doesn't mean he is the most popular worldwide, duh.

Re: French Open Ratings

Also, it's sad seeing how women's tennis used to be more popular than men's tennis in 2002-2003, and I'm sure it also got better ratings from around '98-01 too. I miss the golden age. Women's tennis' popularity has fallen so much in the last five years or so.

An all american final (women's final) vs an all spaniard final (men's final), and you're shocked it got more rating?

In america. In china I'm sure li na's french open win was the most watched tennis match ever.

Don't act as america is the only country. They have 2 old female tennis players and no male players of much ability

No, but it was the same in '03 when it was Clijsters-Henin. Women's tennis got as good or better ratings than men's tennis in the United States from about '97-'04 regardless of whether Americans were playing or not.
