Sunday’s French Open men’s final between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer earned a 2.6 0vernight rating and a 7 share on NBC, up 63 percent from last year’s final (Nadal-Robin Soderling, 1.6/5).

It was the best overnight for the French Open men’s final since Andre Agassi’s 1999 five-set victory over Andrei Nedvedev (4.0/12).

Saturday’s French Open women’s final between Li Na and Francesca Schiavone earned a 1.7 rating and a 5 share, which tied last year for the best overnight numbers since 2008.
