He looks positively miserable 

 

 

 

Well, he just lost a major final after being two sets up, and his grandmother had died just before the match, so I guess he just didn't feel like smiling.

Of course, you had to know I know nothing about his grandmother, and because he's a little sh!t on the court, I get to rejoice in his misery.

I saw it was removed and was wondering why.  That was crazy, but I guess they didn't want that kid to be the highlight of an otherwise miserable tourney.

What’s additionally crazy is that, seeing that level of engagement with the clip, they didn’t think to post it themselves? (Unless I missed it?) They just have a very 20th-century way of marketing themselves.

French Open ratings:

 

Sunday’s Novak Djokovic-Stefanos Tsitsipas French Open men’s final averaged 1.9 million viewers on NBC, up 19% from last year’s months-delayed October final (Rafael Nadal-Djokovic: 1.58M) and up 6% from the last time the final aired as scheduled in 2019 (Nadal-Dominic Them: 1.79M).

Djokovic’s five-set win ranks as the most-watched French Open men’s final since 2016 (2.00M).

The Djokovic-Nadal semifinal on Friday averaged 1.1 million across NBC and NBCSN, the largest audience for a men’s semifinal since 2013.

In other action, the Barbora Krejcikova-Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova women’s final averaged just 954,000 on NBC Saturday morning — up 25% from an all-time low of 763,000 for Iga Świątek-Sofia Kenin last October, but down 8% from Ashleigh Barty-Markéta Vondroušová in ’19.

 

 

Ratings went up. I'm surprised. Maybe viewers were tired of Nadal in the finals.

2016 is the last time there was a non-Nadal final (when Djokovic won his first, over Andy Murray).


When Nadal makes a Roland Garros final, it’s almost a foregone conclusion he’ll be holding the trophy, so there’s less reason for people to watch.

I’m sure that 2013 semifinal was that intense five-setter between Rafa and Novak.
