Re: Australian Open raises prize money by 4 million dollars
Thats because a major makes a ton of money. A challenger or a Tier IV dont make a lot of money.
Majors and mandatories are the opportunity for players ranked about 70-120 to have a chance at real money.
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?
