Clijsters will get high ratings in Australia just like Serena just kills it in the US.
Let's you you have a Serena vs Sharapova final and a Ferrer vs Djokovic final. The men wouldn't even get 10% of the ladies's viewers.

Lordrena gets the ratings every where. Even her 2009 practice session with Dinara got more ratings than the 2011 final on Australian broadcast.

This is a separate issue but it's actually not that shitty anymore. You get first ball to last ball of all grand slam events. I mean, for the French Open you could basically watch 24 hours a day if you wanted to. For men's tennis, you get first ball to last ball coverage of every single masters 1000 event and you get coverage of at least the quarterfinals until the finals of every WTA Premier and above. The Tennis Channel has been a godsend for tennis coverage in the U.S.

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.

So much for all of the recent posts proclaiming Sharapova to be greatest women's tennis icon ever, worshipped and beloved across the entire globe.

There were a few of us on the plethora of Sharapova-is-the-greatest-ever worship threads saying that she is not that well known in the U.S. and is therefore not a global icon, but we were repeatedly told that we were wrong.

I can't wait for the excuses. Did millions of televisions go out just before the match started? Or maybe it's just some big conspiracy that the television ratings firms are a part of just so that it doesn't appear that anyone is more popular in the U.S. than Serena and Venus? No, I think the excuse will be that people didn't watch it because they knew that Sharapova would dominate. Sorry, but I'm not buying that one. Anyone who is truly a big fan will watch the match no matter who the opponent is.

To be fair, I know that the vast majority of Maria's fans are not delusional, but the insane minority have sure been going over board with their posts and their claims lately.

That's on the Tennis Channel. They belong on the fringes of the cable channel catalog. It might just me because I don't subscribe to the Tennis Channel and have watched the standard subscription instead.

I was thinking more along the lines of ESPN vs Eurosport

Last time I checked, "across the entire globe" does not equal the US.

No one ever said the entire globe equals the U.S. But, the entire globe certainly does include the U.S.
