Re: Victoria Azarenka becomes youngest woman to cross $20 million in career earnings
Let's compare. When Navratilova won the AO in 1983 - She received $75,000 - Azerenka in 2013 earned $2,441,936.
Basically in 20 years of time the AO price money has increased by 3256%.
So all in all her achievement means zilch.
Another example, if you look at Navratilova's results :
> She would have earned around $75,000,000.00 just from her grand slams results alone (singles,doubles,mixed).
> That excludes her +- 120 other titles, if say every title was a low key wta event, she would have earned another $100,000,000.00
> That also excludes a whole amount of other results like non gs finals, semis, quarters, 4th round, etc...
It just shows what a money machine certain legends would have been if they played in this era.
