When Tiger left golf for 8 months viewer ratings obviously dropped like crazy. If Fed left tennis for the same time would tennis plummit like golf did?
I think if Nadal left it wouldn't be so bad for ratings overall, but what about an aging Fed?

i dont think they would drop sooo much, but if an american player was number 1 and dominant and he was injured for a long period of time, that would kill american ratings

I think it would drop sharply...can't say by how much but it definitely will drop!

I wonder who has a greater following world wide, Fed or Nadal? I'm assuming Fed, because of his style of play. However, times change and Spain has alot of people and asumption is the mother of all F*CK up's!!
