New prize money for 2005

The new prize money for Roland Garros 2005 will be increased by 2.39% and will reach 13.549.125 euros against 13.232.280 euros in 2004. I think this is the same increase as last year. Prize money for the winner will be :
- Men's singles : 880.000 euros
- Women's singles : 867.000 euros (98.5% of the men's singles winner prize)
They (the Tennis French Federation) also add that it is the higher prize money ever granted in Grand Slam. Is it true?

"Mon 04 Apr, 18h39

PARIS (AP) - La dotation des prochains Internationaux de France de tennis bénéficiera d'une dotation augmentée de 2,39% par rapport à l'édition 2004.
Le montant global de la dotation pour 2005 atteint 13.549.125 euros contre 13.232.280 euros en 2004.
"Au total, ces 13.549.125 euros constituent la plus forte dotation jamais proposée en Grand Chelem", a indiqué lundi dans un communiqué la Fédération française de tennis (FFT).
Celui qui succédera à Gaston Gaudio au palmarès du simple messieurs remportera ainsi la somme de 880.000 euros, tandis que la lauréate du simple dames empochera 867.000 euros, soit 98,5% de la somme revenant au vainqueur du tableau masculin. AP"

Why do women get less money than man?
I don't understand it.

...Don´t smile.
Don't you smile

Please, don´t smile
I´m paralyzed and you are still alive.

It sucks big time. AO and USO have the same prize money for men and women.
At Wimbledon they give an excuse that men play best of five whereas women best of three. What a strange argument since that's how it is played at AO and USO too.

Le progrès technique est comme une hache qu'on aurait mis dans les mains d'un psychopathe.
