Television viewers in the U.S. are watching slightly more ATP World Tour tennis than WTA matches, according to a demographic analysis done by Scarborough Sports Marketing. During a study conducted Feb. '09-March '10, 11.0% of respondents said that they had watched an ATP World Tour tennis event on TV over the past year, while 10.2% of respondents said they had watched a WTA match. Among select demographics -- such as males, those in Gen X (ages 30-44), those with higher education, Caucasians, Asians and those with higher household income -- ATP viewership trended higher than the WTA. Among African-Americans and those in lower income brackets, viewership of WTA events was higher than that of the ATP. Almost 18% of African-Americans surveyed said they watched a WTA event on broadcast or cable TV during the past year, while only 13.2% said they watched an ATP event. Listed below are select demographics for viewership of WTA and ATP World Tour events (Scarborough Sports Marketing).
