Aussie Bernard Tomic’s win over Xavier Malisse at Wimbledon has seen 7TWO’s average national audience of 404,000 almost double the ratings of the same day on Channel 9 last year.
In Melbourne the figure was triple that of last year with 164,000 tuning in to see the young Aussie demolish the Belgium in under one and a half hours 6-1, 7-5, 6-4.
Tomic faces world no. 2 Novak Djokovic on Wednesday night in the quarter final as the youngest quarter-finalist since Boris Becker in 1986.
Seven’s coverage continues tonight from 10pm hosted by Todd Woodbridge with special comments from a team including tennis legend John Newcombe on the 40th anniversary of his back-to-back Wimbledon singles victories.
