US viewership of the 2019 Women's World Cup final was 22% higher than the 2018 men's final

On Sunday, a crowd of nearly 60,000 people gathered at France’s Parc Olympique Lyonnais to watch as the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team (USWNT) defeated the Netherlands 2-0 in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup Final.

Back in the U.S., millions more were watching. According to a statement from Fox Sports, citing data from Nielsen, approximately 14.3 million U.S. viewers tuned in to the final match on television, compared to 11.4 million for the 2018 Men’s World Cup Final, a 22% U.S. viewership boost.

Fox Sports’ statement reports that online streaming viewership peaked at roughly 20 million, making it the most-watched soccer match on English-language television, men’s or women’s, in the U.S. since the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup final, which delivered 25.4 million viewers.

According to CNN, an additional 1.6 million viewers watched the final match in Spanish on Telemundo.

The 2015 Women’s World Cup Final in Canada aired at night in the U.S., while the 2019 Women’s World Cup Final in France aired earlier in the day. The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup Final also had to compete for viewers with the Men’s Concacaf Gold Cup final and the Men’s Copa América final, which both took place on Sunday as well.

USWNT captain Megan Rapinoe called the scheduling of all three matches on the same day “ridiculous and disappointing. ”

Despite these challenges, the 2019 championship game set a record for online streaming for Fox Sports. The match delivered an average minute audience of 289,000 viewers for the network — up 402% from the 2015 Women’s World Cup — making it the most-streamed women’s final in history.

Fox Sports reports that 17.8 million people viewed the 2019 final match on social media, an increase of 18% on Twitter and YouTube, compared to the men’s final in 2018.

According to The Wall Street Journal, U.S. women’s soccer games have generated more revenue for the USSF than U.S. men’s games over the past three years, and according to Nike, the 2019 women’s stadium home jersey is the top-selling soccer jersey, men’s or women’s, ever sold on Nike.com in one season.

15-year-old Cori Gauff, the youngest player to qualify for Wimbledon, beats idol Venus Williams in opening match

“I’ve been dreaming to share the court with Venus,” she said in a pre-match interview . As for a win over the veteran champion, “I never thought this would happen,” Gauff told BBC after the match . “I don’t know how to explain it. I’m literally living my dream. Not many people get to say that.”

Today, as the youngest player ever to qualify for Wimbledon, Gauff is not only competing in the same tournament as her heroes — she’s winning. On Monday, in the first round of play, she beat Venus in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4.

Cori Gauff grew up idolizing Venus and Serena Williams. In fact, Serena is “the reason why I play tennis,” the 15-year-old American phenom told BBC Sport .

Venus, at 39, has seven Grand Slam titles under her belt, including five at the All England Club. She was looking for her 90th Wimbledon singles win in this match.

Gauff, the youngest player in the women’s singles draw, is still in high school. She took a science test the night before the finals of the qualifying tournament, which she had to win to earn a spot in the main draw.

Thanks to the press, a few of her teachers now know about her budding tennis career. “After I made the main draw here, two of my teachers found out I play tennis,” she said. “They saw my name in an article. I have three other teachers that don’t know I play tennis. I’m not really the type of person to talk about myself, so I still think they don’t know.”

Guaff, who will play Magdalena Rybarikova in the second round of the tournament, remained poised throughout today’s match, despite the stakes. “I definitely had to tell myself to stay calm during the match,” she told BBC. “I never played on a court that’s so big. I had to remind myself that the lines are the same size as any other court.

“When we shook hand she told me congratulations and to keep going and good luck. I said ‘thank you for everything you’ve done’ — I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for her.”

Want your resume to sail to the top of the pile? Make sure you do all these things

You use Siri and Alexa, aka artificial intelligence, to find pizza or get the forecast. Now, AI is a deep but unseen part of your job hunt. Companies increasingly use AI to cut down on guesswork. Instead of sorting through thousands of resumes, they can instantly seek out those with the resumes that match what employers are looking for. That’s great for them, but how does that help you? It doesn’t. But armed with that knowledge, you can now tailor your resume so it uses AI to your advantage. You do that by knowing how the algorithms work.

Pixsooz | Getty Images

Just as spellcheck alerts you to a typo, other algorithms pore over your electronically submitted resume for misspellings, grammar and information about your work history. With thousands of previous versions of a job that can be scanned, the algorithm uses the available data on resumes to find the best candidates for a talent recruiter, according to Ian Siegel, CEO of ZipRecruiter, an online job marketplace. “Machine learning can cherry pick and rapidly learn from the employer how to do a lookalike search,” Siegel said. “That turns out to be by far the best method you can use to match.” More from Invest in You:

What hiring managers want to see in your social profile

You didn’t get that job. Was it because of your thank you note?

These people in their 30s are doing a simple thing to get rich On the other side of the job hunt, AI can match a person to a pool of applicants who have experience or skills in common with the job seeker and show the jobs they’ve applied to. “AI is the new version of keyword algorithms,” which have been around since the 1990s, said Robert Meier, a job transition expert and CEO of JobMarketExperts, which deals with a range of employment issues. What they look for: continuity of work history, job title progression and education. “Specific companies may have different metrics they look for, such as software experience or credentials,” Meier said. What has changed is the number of applicants. Digital applications are easy and free, Meier says, and any job opening now has so many more candidates for a company to screen. But most are eliminated almost immediately, and only the top 2% of candidates make it to the interview, according to Meier. Given all these behind-the-scenes algorithms, job hunters need to know how their resume looks to computer “eyes” rather than human ones. Here are five things to consider with resumes you will submit electronically.

1. Be straightforward

“Put things in the simplest, most straightforward language possible,” Siegel said. Clearly list your skills and the years of experience you have with each one. Instead of “professional sound engineer with varied experience in wide variety of software,” check the job description for specifics. Better to say you’re a sound engineer with four years’ experience using Avid Pro Tools. “The algorithms are really good at deducing these are the key skills for a job,” Siegel said.

2. Spelling counts

It’s critical to remember that algorithms on job sites scan for a range of signals. “You might be cavalier about spelling and grammar,” Siegel said. “That’s an easy signal.” For most companies, that means your resume is automatically discarded.

3. Have an up-to-date format

Algorithms try to turn the information on your resume into usable data, said Siegel, so make sure you use a traditional, text-based format. Don’t use Photoshop on your resume: The algorithm can’t derive data from a picture. “Use a modern text editor,” Siegel said. “WordPerfect will make for a challenging document.”

4. The magic of ‘results’

A resume filled with results — not duties and responsibilities — attracts employers like moths to a flame, JobMarketExperts’ Meier said. Phrase your accomplishments as revenue, income or money saved. Perhaps you made some aspect of a company function more efficient or found a way to cut costs. A resume that includes specific numbers, percentages and quantities will get a closer look.

5. Have a mobile-ready resume

Serena Williams’ quest for a 24th Grand Slam title ended with her earliest loss at a major tournament in five years. Williams was outplayed in the third round of the French Open by 20-year-old American Sofia Kenin, who used clean, deep groundstrokes to put together the 6-2, 7-5 upset Saturday. “In that first set, in particular, she hit pretty much inches from the line, and I haven’t played anyone like that in a long time,” Williams said. “I just saw a player that was playing unbelievable.” It was the second significant surprise in a matter of hours: Earlier in the day, No. 1 seed Naomi Osaka was eliminated 6-4, 6-2 by 42nd-ranked Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic. That ended Osaka’s 16-match Grand Slam winning streak, which included titles at the U.S. Open final in September — when she beat Williams in the final — and at the Australian Open in January. Osaka was trying to become the first woman to win three consecutive major trophies since Williams grabbed four in a row in 2014-15, a run that was preceded by a second-round loss at Roland Garros and a third-round loss at Wimbledon. Since those early-for-her defeats, Williams had won six of the 14 majors she entered to surpass Steffi Graf’s professional-era record of 22 Grand Slam singles championships. With 23, Williams stands one away from Margaret Court’s mark for the most in tennis history; Court played in both the professional and amateur eras.

Williams, who is 37, sat out four Slams in 2017-18 while she was off the tour to have a baby. Her first major tournament back was last year’s French Open, where she withdrew before a fourth-round match because of a chest muscle injury. She went on to reach the finals of Wimbledon and the U.S. Open, before wasting match points during a quarterfinal loss at the Australian Open. Williams came to Paris having played only four matches since then; she withdrew from two tournaments because of an injured left knee and another because of illness. Williams had said she considered not entering the French Open at all. “I’m glad I came, at the end of the day,” she said, “but it’s been a really grueling season for me.” She struggled through her opening match at the French Open, which she has won three times, and again against the 35th-ranked Kenin, who never before had made it to the round of 16 at a major. But Kenin played quite well, never showing a trace of nerves. It was Williams whose strokes were off target: Her 34 unforced errors were twice as many as Kenin’s total. Remarkably, Kenin broke Williams four times, while only ceding one of her own service games. “Just playing against Serena, you’ve really got to fight for every point,” Kenin said. “She’s such a tough player. I’m just so happy with this win.” And then, her voice choking on her words, Kenin added: “Obviously, you can tell, with my emotions.” After trailing 3-1 in the second set, Williams appeared to be getting back into the match, breaking back and then holding for a 4-3 lead with the help of three aces. After two of them, Williams stared down Kenin, who had questioned a call earlier in that game. At 5-all, though, Kenin got the last break she’d need with a forehand return winner off a 102 mph serve. She ran to her sideline seat and pressed a towel against her face. There was one last key moment: While serving for the victory, Kenin faced a break point, but Williams’ miscue let it go by. One last error by Williams — a backhand that sailed long — ended things. Like Williams, who dropped eight of the match’s first 10 games, Osaka couldn’t muster a comeback after falling way behind.

Uber stock rises as net losses match expectations

Uber reported earnings for its first time since its public market debut earlier this month, reporting revenue at the top end of its preliminary estimates and roughly matching analyst estimates for net losses.

The stock barely moved on the news of the report but rose more than 3% during executives’ call with analysts as they discussed Uber Eats’ big potential for growth and how it plans to compete with Lyft without spending more money.

Here are the numbers Uber reported for the first quarter of 2019:

Net loss: $1.01 billion, vs. $1.01 billion estimated, according to Refinitv

$1.01 billion, vs. $1.01 billion estimated, according to Refinitv Revenue: $3.10 billion, vs. $3.04 billion estimated, according to Refinitiv

Uber’s revenue came in at the high end of its expected range provided in an unaudited filing ahead of its IPO. It marks a 20% increase from the same period last year when Uber reported $2.58 billion in revenue. Uber’s net income fell into the negative compared to its net income of $3.75 billion in the first quarter of last year.

Uber reported gross bookings for the quarter of $14.65 billion, up 34% from the same period in 2018. Gross bookings measures the total dollar value paid for its services including taxes, tolls and fees, but not tips. Uber grew its monthly active platform consumers 33% from last year’s quarter to 93 million.

For the second quarter in a row, Uber reported a negative core platform contribution margin, defined as the amount of profit it makes from its core platform business divided by adjusted net revenue. This quarter, it fell to negative 4.5%, compared to 17.9% during the same period last year.

History beckons at WrestleMania for WWE’s biggest female stars who promise to steal the show

WrestleMania is WWE’s most valuable pay-per-view worth over $200 million, which gives it a greater brand value than Major League Baseball (MLB). However, WWE as a whole is worth at least 10 times that, with some estimates suggesting it could be more like $3 billion. Speaking exclusively to CNBC in the build-up to Wrestlemania this week, WWE superstar and former Wrestlemania headliner Big Show said: “What’s brought us here is the evolution of the sport.

History beckons at WrestleMania for WWE's biggest female stars who promise to steal the show

History will be made for fans of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) this Sunday, when for the first time the main event of its showpiece pay-per-view will be an all-female affair.

WrestleMania is the biggest night of WWE’s year and has been building to a match featuring superstars Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch, which will be screened to an estimated audience of 800 million homes worldwide.

In October 2018, WWE hosted its first all-women pay-per-view event titled “Evolution” and has seen a rapid rise in popularity for female characters, all leading to this headline match taking place at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey this weekend.

WrestleMania is WWE’s most valuable pay-per-view worth over $200 million, which gives it a greater brand value than Major League Baseball (MLB). However, WWE as a whole is worth at least 10 times that, with some estimates suggesting it could be more like $3 billion.

The drive for redefining attitudes toward women in the sports entertainment industry has come in the wake of many years where they were treated more as sex objects through the “WWE Divas” era. The company responded to social media calls from fans to #givedivasachance in 2015, with WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon tweeting at the time: “We hear you. Keep watching.”

Speaking exclusively to CNBC in the build-up to Wrestlemania this week, WWE superstar and former Wrestlemania headliner Big Show said: “What’s brought us here is the evolution of the sport. The sport had to evolve. From the way the sport changed in the 80s, the 90s the product had to evolve. Now we are getting such incredible athletes on both sides in our women’s division and in our men’s division. Quite frankly it’s neck and neck.”

Work a lot? You can save more for retirement, too

More people are working “side gigs” outside of their 9-to-5 jobs these days. This can offer them more opportunities to save for retirement and even help them make up for lost time.

Nearly 40 percent of people who hold more than one job say they do so to grow their nest egg, according to recent findings by TD Ameritrade. Around the same share of millennials describe their ideal work arrangement as a combination of traditional and temporary work.

More than 2,000 adults were surveyed toward the end of 2018.

Receive income from more than one place? “Be very goal-focused with your side hustle, instead of spending-focused,” said Christine Russell, senior manager of retirement and annuities at TD Ameritrade.

Your first priority should be to contribute enough at your job to get the full company match, if one is available, said Ed Slott, a retirement savings expert. “The company match is free money, so you never want to lose out on that,” Slott said.

If you’re worried that contributing to that point will leave you with too small a paycheck, your side gig can come in handy, Russell said. “You could increase your contributions into your 401(k) plan at work, because you know you’ll have some side gig income to pay that electric bill,” she said.

Match Group falls more than 4% after analyst says Tinder growth to slow 'substantially'

After recommending Match Group for years, Deutsche Bank has finally decided to “swipe left” on the online dating platform, downgrading the stock to a hold rating.

Analyst Kunal Madhukar told clients in a note published Tuesday that he projects a significant slowdown in subscriber growth in Match’s dating app Tinder over the next 12 months. While the app is popular across the U.S. and Western Europe — and is still being adopted globally — Deutsche Bank believes “it could take time and a lot of effort to convert the potential addressable universe into subscribers.”

Tinder is a location-based social search app that lets users signal their interest in meeting others on the app by swiping left or right on profiles they view on their phones, a rejection and approval, respectively.

“There still is a lot of stigma associated with online dating in many countries outside of North America and Western Europe and the stigma associated with casual relationships could be even higher,” Madhukar wrote. Tinder’s other challenge is that its user base “is currently skewed disproportionately towards males in a number of countries.”

Pricing could also prove problematic for Match, the analyst said, since the majority of the current subscribers (and future ones) live outside of the U.S. If the pricing for Tinder internationally is at a significant discount to the pricing in the U.S., sales growth could lag subscriber growth. Higher prices could also affect one of the key appeals of Tinder, its large and diverse pool of potential partners.

Qatar-based BeIN Sports steps up piracy fight against Saudi Arabian rival channel

A deal was struck last June for around 20 million euros ($22 million) to stage the Supercoppa in Saudi Arabia for three of the next five seasons.

However, following the killing of U.S.-based Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in October, several major sporting eventsplanned for the country have come under scrutiny.

Saudi Arabia has been attempting to project a more moderate image to the world in recent months. However, the Khashoggi controversy and laws outlawing women from even attending soccer matches led to Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, himself a fan of AC Milan, to say he won’t be watching the match out of principle.

It’s the sixth time in 10 years that the Supercoppa has been decided outside Europe. Far from home locations have included Libya, the United States, Qatar on two occasions and four times in China.

Eleven Sports Network, who own the digital rights to Italian football coverage in several territories, has also voiced its concern about the piracy issues surrounding beoutQ and also the suitability of Saudi Arabia to host the Supercoppa.

“The staging of this match in Saudi Arabia serves only to reward a country that has done nothing to combat the continued presence and operation of the beoutQ service from within its borders,” Andrea Cerroni, Eleven Sports Group General Counsel, said in a letter to Serie A back in December.

“This decision will drastically damage the ongoing efforts of the entire sports industry to combat and end this hugely disruptive, illegal and damaging piracy. We strongly urge you to reconsider the decision to stage this match in Saudi Arabia,” he went on to say.

Eleven Sports failed to receive a reply its letter, which was sent directly to the Chief Executive Marco Brunelli, but in October Serie A did defend the decision to stage the match in Jeddah, not least as Saudi Arabia is Italy’s biggest trading partner in the Middle East.

Last month the World Trade Organization in Geneva approved a request for the establishment of a WTO panel to adjudicate on the beoutQ case brought against Saudi Arabia for violating intellectual property rights.

In October, beIN commenced an international investment arbitration claiming over $1 billion in damages against Saudi Arabia on the basis of beoutQ. Last summer, world soccer’s governing body FIFA, the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) and other sports rights holders have disclosed that they will be launching legal action in Saudi Arabia.

Last year, also saw for the first time in more than a decade, the U.S. government place Saudi Arabia on its 2018 Special 301 Watch List, noting concerns over the deteriorating environment for the protection of intellectual property.

To add to the political and sporting rivalry that’s developed between the two Arab nations, Qatar’s soccer team faces its Saudi Arabian rivals in a group match at the Asian Cup on Thursday.

CNBC has attempted to contact boutQ and approached Arabsat for comment, but has so far failed to receive a response.
