The Associated Press
NBC's telecast of Rafael Nadal's victory over Mariano Puerta in the men's final of the French Open on Sunday drew an overnight rating of 2.0, close to the usual number for a major tennis final without Americans.
Belgian Justine Henin-Hardenne's victory over Mary Pierce of France in the women's final on Saturday drew a 1.9 rating. Both championship matches earned a share of six.
Last year's men's final at Wimbledon, when American Andy Roddick lost to Roger Federer, drew a 3.6 rating on NBC. But the U.S. Open final, in which Federer of Switzerland beat Australian Lleyton Hewitt, drew a 2.5 on CBS.
Last year's all-Argentinian final in the French Open had a rating of 2.1
The rating is the percentage of all homes with TVs, whether or not they are in use. The share is the percentage of in-use televisions tuned to a given show. Overnight ratings measure the 55 largest TV markets in the United States, covering nearly 70 percent of the country.
