I applaud the Aussie Open for stepping up & fully support the players push for a larger share of revenue. But, not for 1st round exits.

I'd be tempted to reduce 1st rd money & give major increases to 2nd & 3rd rounds, & beyond. Reward players for performance, similar to golf.

It would help eliminate injured players turning up to a Slam event, playing a set and walking off to collect a $20K+ cheque.
how about the players who battled through three rounds of qualifying dickhead?
