9 Players over 1 million in prize money after US Open!!

This is a record for sure...

I know the $ has been increased, but the competition in women's tennis nowadays shows why these women could earn a lot more money

1 KUZNETSOVA, SVETLANA RUS 1,741,528
2 DAVENPORT, LINDSAY USA 1,697,011
3 MYSKINA, ANASTASIA RUS 1,473,563
4 HENIN-HARDENNE, JUSTINE BEL 1,425,406
5 DEMENTIEVA, ELENA RUS 1,391,420
6 MAURESMO, AMELIE FRA 1,299,236
7 SHARAPOVA, MARIA RUS 1,269,680
8 WILLIAMS, SERENA USA 1,224,198
9 SUAREZ, PAOLA ARG 1,157,526
10 CAPRIATI, JENNIFER 809,961

Maju terus Tenis Indonesia!

The thing is, no one stands out. Last year Clijsters won about $4 mil just by herself. And Justine was close to that, too. So, the total amount of prize money hasn't increased much, but it has been distributed more evenly this year.

I misread that and though it was career prize money thinking WTF <g>

It's because noone has dominated the whole season like the past - although Lindsay being no 2 on the list for getting to SF only in a GS is pretty darn consistent and only have 2 doubles matches prize money contributing to that amount. <g>

It's all the doubles that does it for Paola. Three GS Finals was it?
