I am in high school, and plan on playing D-1 tennis. I know there are a lot of college players on here. My question is: do any fans show up? Is there any interest in college tennis at all?

I didn't play college tennis but I have gone to at least a dozen matches. I think depends on what college you go to. I went to watch some UCLA matches which seemed pretty well attended. I have also seen some D1 matches in the m idwest which were very poorly attended.

The matches here have some decent crowds, nothing huge, but there are definitely people in the bleachers. Usually many people have to/choose to stand.

Some D1 schools have a nice set up to watch matches, that encourages people to come watch. UCLA has a great set up, other schools you are watching through chain link fences...

I watch a lot of women's college tennis at OSU. Most of the people seem to be friends and family. I talk a lot with the parents in the stands and have gotten some good hits with people while they are in town.

No interest @ the Big East school where I played. Only one set of aluminum bleachers that sat maybe 50, but still no one watched. Then again we were terrible, so who would watch anyways lol.
