2015-no numbers but terribly low, with ball kids outnumbering fans in many early matches.

[The above is a "fake" news story. As Arsenic notes: "Pretty sure there were a few early round international matches where the ballkids outnumbered the paying guests... but I think that article was an attempt at satire."

Both the mens and womens lacked star power of previous years although i would of thought both Dmitrov and Kyrgios'pressence would of bumped it up. Guess not
When you used to get Federer (2014-2016), Nishikori (2013-2017) followed by Nadal, Wawrinka (2017) this is a step down. :shrug:

On WTA, you used to have Vika, Serena, Sharapova, Kerber and Ivanovic. Now you have Pliskova and Svitolina, 'relative' nobodies.

In the presentation ceremony for the men's singles final between Alex De Minaur and Danil Medvedev at the Sydney International, the President of Tennis NSW reported the 2018 tournament had an attendance of 45,000.

If it is publicly confirmed, that is definitely the worst figure for the Sydney tournament since it moved to Sydney Olympic Park in 2000.

New place has 30 courts and it says stadium holds 65,000
https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2018/mar/30/miami-open-miami-dophins-stadium-hard-rock-tennis

The ability to host sponsors in plush, luxury suites which generate huge amounts of cash during the NFL season are also, predictably, attractive reasons for the switch.

“Stephen Ross is helping to progress the sport,” James Blake, the former world no4 who is the Miami Open’s new tournament director, told the Guardian. “A lot of the top players have been kept in the loop. They need to be happy and we need to make sure we don’t miss anything. The courts, facilities, the food , the locker rooms.”

But its an NFL stadium with luxury boxes. I've always said tennis needs billionaires like Ellison and the Dolphins owner sounds like a good billionaire to have.
We will know for sure next March
