Is there any public statistic for financial results and tickets sold for individual WTA events?

Which tournaments do you think are the most successful in terms of profit and attendance?

I have been to a few tournaments and seen many more on TV and here are my subjective top tournaments:

Tier I:

1. Miami
2. Indian Wells

Tier II:

1. Sydney
2. Antwerpen (before the farewell of the Belgians)
3. Amelia Island
4. Paris
5. Zurich

Tier III:

1. S'Hertogenbosch
2. Memphis
3. Mumbai

Tier IV:

No clue. Are there any successful Tier IV events?

As much as I would love to see Berlin up there (I actually do see it up there regarding the strength of the field), but as for financial results and attendance I guess it's near the bottom line... German people don't understand what a great tournament it is or at least they are not interested in tennis anymore... :rolleyes:

Stanford and San Diego are both successful tournaments from what I can tell. New Haven has a strong attendance, partly helped by it being a joint event and Blake being something of a home player. (J-block...:( )

I dont know much about LA.

The strength of the field contributes to attendance and financial profit rather than the other way round. Some tournaments have a strong field without being successful, either because they belong to Tier I (Berlin) or because they are attractive for the players for geographic and scheduling reasons.

I think San Diego was a well-attended tournament... the Roger's Cup too... well - from the impression I got from watching them on TV :p

but of course Indian Wells and Miami are up there too.
