This is a record for sure...

I know the $ has been increased, but the competition in women's tennis nowadays shows why these women could earn a lot more money

1 KUZNETSOVA, SVETLANA RUS 1,741,528
2 DAVENPORT, LINDSAY USA 1,697,011
3 MYSKINA, ANASTASIA RUS 1,473,563
4 HENIN-HARDENNE, JUSTINE BEL 1,425,406
5 DEMENTIEVA, ELENA RUS 1,391,420
6 MAURESMO, AMELIE FRA 1,299,236
7 SHARAPOVA, MARIA RUS 1,269,680
8 WILLIAMS, SERENA USA 1,224,198
9 SUAREZ, PAOLA ARG 1,157,526
10 CAPRIATI, JENNIFER 809,961

The thing is, no one stands out. Last year Clijsters won about $4 mil just by herself. And Justine was close to that, too. So, the total amount of prize money hasn't increased much, but it has been distributed more evenly this year.

Yeah and that's supposed to be good.. :) Last year I was a bit bored of all the Henin vs Clijsters finals at everywhere they were in together.

I misread that and though it was career prize money thinking WTF <g>

It's because noone has dominated the whole season like the past - although Lindsay being no 2 on the list for getting to SF only in a GS is pretty darn consistent and only have 2 doubles matches prize money contributing to that amount. <g>

It's all the doubles that does it for Paola. Three GS Finals was it?
