It's the only one I've seen. And it surprised me.

Re: Is the SEO the only tournament where women are paid more than men?

yeah but its not the same category. Its like comparing a WTA premier (700 000$) to a ATP 250 (300 000$ to 650 000$)

Not so. It's true that the ATP and the WTA got the same total $. But the WTA channeled more money to players. Even the players in early rounds get more.

Men's Singles
Winner $659,775
Runner Up $321,990
Semifinalist $161,375
Quarterfinalist $82,270
Fourth Round $43,370
Third Round $23,210
Second Round $12,530
First Round $7,680


Women's Singles
Winner $712,000
Runner Up $352,000
Semifinalist $164,000
Quarterfinalist $79,000
Fourth Round $39,000
Third Round $21,000
Second Round $12,725
First Round $7,700

I'm pretty sure Sydney does, but thats because its a bigger tourney for women than for men.

Pobably Easthbourne too?

The ATP's isn't that good at the moment. It's a three-men show (sometimes four) but every match has crazy hype around it.
Federer-Harrison was packed.

It will hard for the WTA to justify the prize money if the crowds aren't there.
They need a new marketing team and fast.
