When searching for a sporting event on Google, say Wimbledon, Google displays the schedule of the upcoming games.

I've noticed that, by default, Google displays the women's singles schedule (second tab) rather than the first tab, i.e. men's singles. Any reason why? Any way to change this behaviour?

The workaround would be to search:

Wimbledon men


And the reason could be based on stats for popularity/viewership (in the US)

  • I've also noticed that by adding "men" to the query it gets me to the male tab, but I'd like to keep my query to the bare minimum. Also, men's tennis is much more popular than women's, thus my lack of understanding. – BiBi Jul 1 '19 at 1:07
  • I believe Google would disagree with you otherwise it would show males tab. its like football and search for UEFA. who cares about women UEFA? not Google coz they don't even have a widget – user0 Jul 1 '19 at 1:14
  • here could Google gain inspiration: i.stack.imgur.com/8G897.png - another source says: i.stack.imgur.com/4khv4.png ... anyway, back to the topic: there is no URL parameter to switch tabs on the widget so the only option is to have "men" in the search query – user0 Jul 1 '19 at 1:30
