I'm sure the $1M was gross, not net. She had to pay for travel, coaches, taxes, and even though top players get a lot of stuff comped she still had living expenses while on the tour. It's not like it was a sudden windfall out of nowhere. Even if she was smart and frugal there's no way she was able to bank the full amount.

She may also have just wanted to have done something to take her mind off her troubles.
