1,000,000 Bonus

If Maria wins tomorrow and doesn't make the Championships can she play Bali for the million dollar bonus. I remmeber reading somewhere that if you win 3 of these smaller tournament and win Bali there is a million bonus. Does anyone know anything about this?

Re: 1,000,000 Bonus

I really hope she makes the real YEC, but if she doesn't make it, it would be great if she plays Bali.
I seriously doubt she would go though.

Re: 1,000,000 Bonus

Well apparently the only reason she didnt take a WC there last year was not enough appearence money so if she has a million to play for Im sure she'd go.

Re: 1,000,000 Bonus

Don't the rules state that if you win an International tournament and don't make the YEC in Doha then you HAVE to play Bali?

This is the WTA Tour. No one has to do anything if they have enough money.

It doesnt sound right to me, either.
Most of the players entering these small tournaments are broke. Desperate for points.
And they give 1 person a million? The WTA is nuts if they do this

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

no she wont if she doesn't want to. a million is nothing to maria. she turned down playing the billie jean cup thing this year and that is 250,000 just to turn up.

Re: 1,000,000 Bonus

oh, that explains why she played Memphis and Strasbourg I guess.

Btw, people says all the time that she is a MM queen. But after birmingham, I doubt that she will play another one. Which means 3. And it's not her fault that she is actually winning them. Most top players play at least one or two MM event every year.

Re: 1,000,000 Bonus

It could happen. Even if she wins tomorrow, she'll just barely be top30 in the race... It'll be really hard to qualify for the YEC.

Re: 1,000,000 Bonus

This is dumb Especially if it goes to a player like Maria Sharapova. I guess for up-and-comers or little-known players this could do a lot of good... But they might as well spread the $1 million amongst the finishers and offer more prize money
