Brisbane Tennis International Draws Record Crowds
January 14th, 2014
This year’s Brisbane Tennis International attracted more than 105,000 people during the eight day tournament.
Queensland Minister for Tourism Jann Stuckey said that this year’s success had cemented the tournament’s reputation as a premier event on the global tennis scene.
Lleyton Hewitt and Serena Williams took out the men’s and women’s titles during the event, and other big name players in attendance included Roger Federer and Victoria Azarenka.
Stuckey told reporters that the Brisbane International is just the first of a number of exciting events planned for Brisbane in 2014, including the Channel 7 Brisbane Racing Carnival, the annual Brisbane Festival and the much anticipated début performance of the American Ballet.
The Queensland Government has thrown its weight behind the Brisbane Tennis International, now in its fourth year, as part of its commitment to increasing overnight visitor expenditure in Queensland to $30 billion a year by 2020. Stuckey said she was looking forward to yet another successful Brisbane International next year.
