Indian Wells to offer $1 million to winner

Also $500,000 to finalist, $200,000 to semifinalists. This year was $700,000, $350,000 to finalist. Significant increases, except they should have done more in early rounds. 1st round goes from $7,050 to $7,709

Just three years ago, for the 2009 tournament, the BNP Paribas Open granted equal prize money to both men and women while increasing the total prize money purse by more than $3 Million. In less than five years the tournament has nearly doubled the total prize money offered to players (2008 - $5.835 Million, 2012 – $11.073 Million). Click here to view the prize money breakdown.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....

Re: Indian Wells to offer $1 million to winner

Where do they get all the money from?

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.

But China can certainly match it, or go past that. So can Tiriac.
I dont know if Miami will match it.

Re: Indian Wells to offer $1 million to winner

Though Larry Ellison is worth $30billion or so (or what ever he and his Oracle stock are worth now), I'm sure he's a smart and cheap enough man to let the sponsor's kick in the extra dough!

Good for everybody though!

Re: Indian Wells to offer $1 million to winner

PS: If I'm remember correctly, Madrid payed almost a million dollars this year for the winner, as well.

I think it was something like $960,000.
