Again, USA people believing that their 350 million population and 9 million square kilometres of area is the entire World.
Er she lost in the SF.Average Joe tuning in to see Serena wins the CYGS. Imagine the shock experienced by those guys.
I remember that on Eurosport after normal commercials there still was a preview for the upcoming final Serena against Pennetta AFTER Serena had already lost to Vinci.Average Joe tuning to see Serena wins the CYGS. Imagine the shock experienced by those guys.
It was the Serena mania effect. More viewers watched that USO than any recently because she was going for the CYGS. However, Osaka/Azarenka crushing Thiem/Zverev has nothing to do with Serena and shows they're a bigger draw in the US at least. Can't blame Americans because we all know that the women's final was better than the men's. Take that TTW fans who think the women are a sideshow. LolEr she lost in the SF.
How do you explain Kerber's match just having 20k less viewers than Nadal's match and 5k less than Djokovic/Wawrinka's? They're not American.
2 American players Stephens/Keys have less than 2 million while Serena's has over 3 million so it's not just an American thing. She obviously has star power.
Yeah a typing mistake, plus I'm not so used to the unit of millions here, we use thousand, lakh/lac (100k), karod/crore (100lakh) etc..The USA is over 300 million people but I understand your point.
Sadly, your last sentence has truth in it.Yeah a typing mistake, plus I'm not so used to the unit of millions here, we use thousand, lakh/lac (100k), karod/crore (100lakh) etc..
But sometimes it looks ridiculously laughable, that most citizens of so called "the best" country in the world have lack of common sense and general knowledge...
Women's matches tend to be ridiculously short.
Of course a 4 hour men's 5 set match will not be able to hold the same audience as a 90 minute women's match.
The average TV viewer simply will NOT be watching an entire 5 hour men's match. Particularly when the Big Three are MIA. Or even a 5 hour women's match (if that even existed).
Moreover, the men's Friday matches started at 4 pm while the women's Thursday matches started at the prime time 7 pm. a weekday match starting at Prime Time will always have a much larger audience than a match starting at 4 pm when most everyone is still outside.
This is NOT an apples and apples comparison!
