NEW YORK (AP) -- The overnight TV ratings for both U.S. Open singles finals dropped from last year.
The men's final, in which Roger Federer beat Novak Djokovic, drew a 4.2 overnight rating on CBS on Sunday, down from a 5.1 for Federer against Andy Roddick in 2006.
The women's final, in which Justine Henin defeated Svetlana Kuznetsova, got a 2.6 overnight rating on CBS on Saturday night. That's a decline from the 3.2 CBS got in 2006, when Henin lost to Maria Sharapova.
The overnight ratings measure the 55 biggest television markets, covering about 70 percent of the country.
