Serena 09 prize money in excess of 6.2M!

This must be some record of sorts. i know in 07 Justine broke the 5m earned in a single season. All on the back of 3 tournies! Amazing!

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Not all of the increase is due to inflation. The players (especially the women) simply earn more now in adjusted dollar amounts.

Didn't Justine win something like 7 million?

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.

Yay!

What's the record for the most points in a year?

Thanks to the women who demanded to be payed equal prize money at the majors, YEC, Miami and IW. It is now paying dividend especially to those who think they are worthy as it should be. Graf was one of those who didn't think women deserved to be payed less therefore she deserved the "unequal" pay she got.

BTW what a smart decision Richard made after watching someone made $40,000 for one match to $1.5m for one of his daughters plus the runner up prize money also. How much money did Vee get?

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the SILENCE OF OUR FRIENDS. MLK

That's what I was wondering. I know if Serena had lost she would have gotten 780k so I don't know if that's the same for Venus since she won less matches?
