Let's start with the Billie Jean King Cup.

Ana Ivanovic is now retired.
Justine Henin. Amelie Mauresmo. Francesca Schiavone.

wow. and do you know what's the breakdown for the players? I mean how much to semifinalists, runner-up and winner. Ana may have gotten a nice paycheck just to show up and play one no-ad set.

Re: The Exhibition Thread

It's a winner takes all exhibition. So the winner alone will take the $1.2 million.

Ana *sigh* Ivanović.

Re: The Exhibition Thread

It doesn't say, but I highly doubt it. Even so, its a very good pay-off for them to join the cup :P

Re: The Exhibition Thread

$1.2 million
I thought this event is supposed to promote tennis
They should give that money to some charity

If not, i hope the winner will do some charity by herself.
But i think I read that the money from the public attending will go to charity.

I know like the primaries and the elections where they spent like billions in advertising and campaigning But i guess that's a way to move the economy, as long as they spend. Maybe they hope Serena or Venus will win and invest the money in the US.
