Question Can't Kim become the first female to win $4 million??

I am pretty sure Kim has won around $3 million this year, and if she were to win the singles title (not to mention the doubles title), would she become the first female player to win over $4 million in one year?? It would probably be a record for females in all sports for actual earnings within sports/competition

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived

If Kim wins both singles and doubles tomorrow she will have exactly earned $4,154,064, and that without sponsordeals money and other stuff.

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

The 30th anniversary celebration continues Monday when the Tour adds an additional $30 to the singles winners check, making it $1,000,030 the richest in womens sports history.

I would LOVE to see Amelie Mauresmo win and take home this check. So much promise and talent she has that it's time that she wins a title with presige. Maybe winning tonight will do for Mauresmo what it did for Kim this year.

Allez Amelie, show off the talent and continure the ONE HANDED BACKHAND pride!

Exclamation

Venus' career earnings are higher than Serena's, Jennifer and the Beligans because for the past few years, she has consistently earned in the seven figures, something she will not do this year.
