2014 French Open set new viewing record for Eurosport

http://www.insidethegames.biz/sports...-for-eurosport

Pan-European television network Eurosport enjoyed record-breaking audience figures during this year's French Open, according to broadcast data.

An average live audience of 1.36 million people watched the tennis Grand Slam, up 17 per cent on the previous tournament benchmark set during 2012.

The women's final - a three-hour contest which saw Russia's Maria Sharapova overcome Romanian Simona Halep in a deciding set - was the most watched women's tennis match in Eurosport's history.

It attracted an average live audience of 3.8 million viewes, a 24 per cent rise on the 2012 Women's Tennis Association Miami final between Sharapova and Pole Agnieszka Radwańska, the previous record holder.

The men's final between Spain's Rafael Nadal and Serbia's Novak Djokovic was the most watched French Open final ever on Eurosport, with a live audience of 4.1 million viewers tuning in.

It was just shy of the 4.3 million who watched the 2012 Australian Open final between the pair.

The highest viewing figure rises versus 2013 were in Romania and Spain, both up 128 per cent.

The United Kingdom saw a 79 per cent rise in people watching the action at Roland Garros, and viewing in France on the network was up 49 per cent.

A total of 60.7 million different European viewers tuned in to the two-week tournament, which ended at the weekend, versus 58.8 million in 2013.

That makes it the second best ever Grand Slam reach on Eurosport and Eurosport 2, narrowly behind the 61.2 million record of the 2012 French Open.

"To have the best-ever French Open this year is a fantastic achievement for the whole Eurosport team," said Eurosport Group chief executive Jean-Thierry Augustin.

"The strategy to identify and secure exclusivity in specific European markets on key properties has delivered the expected results.

"The French Open is definitely one of those key properties.

"Our on-air coverage has been excellent and clearly matched viewers expectations who enjoyed some incredible tennis and great analysis from our experts.

"It is especially pleasing to achieve this record in our 25th year, which also marks the 25th broadcast of the French Open on our channels."

What I think is great for all WTA fans is that viewership for the women's final was 93% of that for the men. That's a very healthy percentage for women's tennis.

Maria & Simona.

And some people say and think that Simona is not marketable The best way to be marketable is to play tennis at the highest level. The best promoter for women tennis and WTA is tennis itself and WTA should focus more on promoting tennis not other bullshit that makes people horny.

I hate to sound sexist, but.any promotors will tell you women's look matters a lot when promoting. Men run the world and they like to watch sexy women. I will probably get attacked for this, but just stating facts

I know some people will hate me for this:

Graf vs. Sabatini (Masters 1987) had a 11 million audience in Germany alone.
Graf vs. Hingis (FO 1999) had more than 25 million in Europe.

The decline of women's tennis goes on and on ...

Re: 2014 French Open set new viewing record for Eurosport

It really was a great match and, therefore, deserved a big audience. Although to be honest, people who drew up the audience figures were mostly Romanians. As written in the article, Romanian viewership was up 128% in the whole tournament. It's foolish to think most of that rise didn't come from the final rounds. Anyways, it's great to see such a feat and shows that women's tennis, on the contrary to what some say, still has a lot of life in it.

Re: 2014 French Open set new viewing record for Eurosport

Sharapova brought in the other highest rating

A total of 60.7 million different European viewers tuned in to the two-week tournament, which ended at the weekend, versus 58.8 million in 2013.
That makes it the second best ever Grand Slam reach on Eurosport and Eurosport 2, narrowly behind the 61.2 million record of the 2012 French Open.
