correct me if i'm wrong, what i know is that players are given free accomodation when they are still alive/still winning at a tournament. once they lose, they have to pay on their own.

That it is correct for Internationals and some Premiers. Big tournaments usually give a minimum of 6 nights to MD players no matter when they are eliminated. Indian Wells is the most generous one giving like 10 days accomodation IIRC to everyone in MD. That makes sense as many non Americans players would not play the event in case they lose early the first week and have to cover 2 weeks accomodation in the US until Miami.

Usually they have a day more after the day they lost.

Then why are they always bitching about how much money they're losing during March?

I guess they say so because there are only 2 tournament they can play in the whole month. Once they are gone in the earlier rounds they can't earn money anywhere. They get hospitality all these days but they are earning no money in any other tournaments.

Out of curiosity, how do taxes work at tournaments? Like did Serena have to pay like 80% in Bastad In some ways I hate how fake but rich Dubai is...
