Where are the money?

We all been told that Kim should receive 2.2 million for her victory in UA Open (+ Us Open Series) and yet here http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/p...1~1583,00.html only $2,162,712 are present. Here is a question for WTA: Please explayn.

Re: Where are the money?

Maybe Kim's accountant should look into this?

She didn't win the series.
I thought only the winner will get the prize double?

Re: Where are the money?

It was Wozniacki the one who won the US Open series!

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Where are the money?

It has nothing to do with winning US Open series. Kim was second and we were told about 2.2 Million. Should Wozniaki win US Open she would get more. The point is the 2.2 million were anounced and some 37,000 are missing.

Re: Where are the money?

2,162,712 Million isn't very snappy... it makes for a poor sound bite. Thus, they round it to the nearest 100k when talking about it... Or is this a comedy post where I don't get the joke?

Well, then I have no clue. I see Wozniacki got $641,226 instead of $650,000.

Re: Where are the money?

Vera was fined for her tantrum in the final and her poor performance. Caro was fined for her micro-mini dress. Kim was fined for staring at her strings while shaking Venus' hand after the semifinal win and lack of effort during the 3rd set of her match against Stosur. Its all here:
