Re: Serena 09 prize money in excess of 6.2M!
Not all of the increase is due to inflation. The players (especially the women) simply earn more now in adjusted dollar amounts.
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
