I'm here in LA and let me just say, not many people know this is the year-end championships. They think it's just another tennis tournament because it's called the Home Depot Championships. They need to make it clear and they need to promote more with their headliners (since there are LOTS of headliners).
It really is such a shame, but I must say that the crowds have increased steadily from the first round. Even though it wasn't a capacity crowd last night when Venus played Monica, there were a lot of people and the energy was good.
Better promotion probably will help it, as well as more events for your money. Tickets are NOT cheap if you bought them in advance (although right now they are "buy one get one free") and you need to get a new ticket for every 1 single/1 double match.
