Event Notes: ATP World Finals Expected To Break Last Year's Attendance Record At The O2
Andy Murray’s Wimbledon triumph "is set to help create an attendance record at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals at the O2 in November." The Finals "attracted a record 263,229 fans over eight days last year and organisers are confident a new mark will be set because of the interest generated by Murray’s second Grand Slam triumph and the return of Rafael Nadal, who missed London last year with knee problems" (London EVENING STANDARD, 9/19). ... The Int'l Cycling Union (UCI) Congress will be held at Palazzo Vecchio, Florence, on Sept. 27. It is open to the press during the entire procedure (UCI). ... Fiji will host a new $1M golf tournament "starting next August as part of a five-year deal with the PGA of Australia." The Fiji Int'l "will be played at the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course and will be co-sanctioned with the OneAsia Tour" (REUTERS, 9/19).
