I think $20,000 should be for 1st round of qualies, then $30k, $40k. And 1st round main draw 50k. 2nd round 75k, 3rd 100k.
These majors can easily afford that
yeah, and future and satellites dont make money at all
should they remove prize money from futures so winner gets 0 euros?

Alize Cornet- Agi Radwanska- Caro Wozniacki

Slava Shvedova- Bel Bencic- Alize Lim
