The Women's World Cup '99 has sold 300,000 tickets to date, compared to the 112,000 sold for the WWC '95 in Denmark. For the WWC '99 opening round doubleheader at Giants Stadium, 40,000 tickets have been sold, and 30,000 tickets have been sold to the Rose Bowl finale (WWC '99). FROM THE ROUGH: In S.F., Pat Sullivan wrote that a Women's Senior Golf Tour (WST) for players 40 and over could be formed, with three or four events in the first year and an "anticipated startup in 2000" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 4/5). ALL IN THE FAMILY CUP: CBS SportsLine's Mike Lurie writes that WTA Tour attendance "remains strong," with attendance up 7.85% over last year through 13 events. Last week's Family Circle Cup drew a record paid attendance of 97,081, an 18% increase over last year's record of 82,000 (CBS SportsLine, 4/7). Family Circle Ticket Manager Jeff Pankhurst said that the event drew "about" 102,000. The tournament was sold out Friday-Sunday, with Friday's sellout marking "a first for the tournament" (POST & COURIER, 4/5).
