But how can people intend to tune into a more interesting match when they don't know yet how the match will turn out? People didnt know going into the French final that Coria and Gaudio would make it entertaining. I thought Coria was well on his way to winning in three easy sets by the end of Set 1.
Are you saying that when a final produces a match-up that wasnt so predicted, more people will tune in out of curiousity?

A presumed blowout by any player, non-American or American, would get low ratings.
