Re: TV ratings for the men's final better than 2003 - still below women

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.

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->

Oliver Cromwell lay buried and dead. Hee-haw. Buried and dead.
