I dont know but here are some stats on Grand Slam total attendance:
US Open 2012: 710,803
French Open 2011: 429,105
Wimbledon 2012: 484,805
Australian Open 2012: 686,006

So the Word Tour Finals over 8 days and played on 1 court had over 283000 people which is 65% of the French Open total attendance which is held over 14 days and 15+ courts.

I'd say the World Tour Finals is every bit as big as some of the Grand Slams.
