Half the entire television audience in Britain watched the BBC's coverage of the Wimbledon tennis tournament men's singles in which Switzerland's Roger Federer defeated America's Andy Roddick. During the last 15 minutes of play, the BBC claimed 55.9 percent of the audience. In the U.S., NBC's coverage of the match was watched by 12 percent of the audience, down slightly from last year's final match.
