Total attendance for the week was 136,789, well short of expectations. That was down from the 140,007 that attended the event in 2003, the last time it was held in Toronto, and significantly lower than the 166,442 total last year in Montreal.

Withdrawls, and rain hurt the walk up crowd numbers. The final had 10,000, and the stadium seats over 11,000. Belgian finals are not a hot ticket in Toronto.

Indeed disappointing. I agree the withdrawals have a lot to do with that. With Maria and both sisters, it would have been incredibly higher.
