Current (Year To Date) Money Prize List (WTA 2006 "millioners" only!):



1. MARIA $HARAPOVA (RUSA) $3,329,001
2. JUSTINE HENIN-HARDENNE (BEL) $3,204,810
3. AMELIE MAURESMO (FRA) $2,838,477
4. SVETLANA KUZNETSOVA (RUS) $1,848,304
5. NADIA PETROVA (RUS) $1,228,514
6. KIM CLIJSTERS (BEL) $1,122,992
7. ELENA DEMENTIEVA (RUS) $1,116,505
8. MARTINA HINGIS (SUI) $1,029,537


(all others - less than 1M$)


JHH and MoMo is currently better ranked players and have better succes this year at slams, but Ma$ha :hearts: always find way to reach more money than any other player - even in official (tournaments only) money prizes :angel: :lol: !!!


Also, $he always reach about 1000% more money from her sponsors (other players about 100% :tape: ), so dont be surprised if she reach this year more than 30.000.000,oo U$D (New World Record for some female athlets!!!).

Congrats Ma$ha... you are already bigest moneymaker in tennis history (including ATP competition)! Deserve that or not, fact is that she with all that "publicity" back all that money to tennis (and her sponsors too) - so no reasons for protest or jelaousy (IMO).

i'm not that surprised that maria's on top of the prize money list. well done 2 her, but that doesn't mean that she will end the year no.1 in the world (no offence). i mean justine's close 2.

Well, no one can seriously say THAT money isn't well earned, anyway.

Apparrantly it is because Masha won 3 tier 1 tournaments besides her slam and Amelie won 2 tier II tournaments and 2 slams.

Actualy she won the only slam with "bonus" (USO), and because she finish US Open series like #2, she have +50% bonus for her USO win, and this 500.000 U$D for victory more than JHH or MoMo reach for theys AO, RG or Wim wins is reason why Ma$ha is 2006 leader even in official Money Prizes (in overall competition she will be leader even if miss whole season :devil: ).

But that is Ma$ha - if RG next season will have some $$$ bonus, she will win at clay !!! :devil: :devil: :devil:

she also recieved an additional 600 000 for being runner up in the uso series. she is yet to pocket another million in a couple weeks time when she wins the YEC, she will have made more money than kim who broke that record last year or was it 2003 when she was also playng a lot of doubles.

I thought she won the USO series for a minute but remembered that it was Ivanovic, right? :o But anyway she still got a shit load of prize money and bonus money @ the USO.

Amelie's still had the best year. :p

I'm amazed Masha's earnt more than Henin and Maurasemo, especially Maurasemo considering she's won 2 Slams this year (including cash-strapped Wimbledon) :eek:

Even without the endorsements, Maria still tops a $$$ list :) And in this case, no-one can accuse her of being some media whore who relies only on her looks to bring in the cash ;)

From nothing to everything Congrats to the Sharapova/Sharapov family. Maria loves the money but if she didn't love the game she wouldn't have it and when you remember where she came from it's a great achievement.

you could say that of just about every player, very few of them start off rich, perhaps the graf/agassi kids if they do play.

:haha: :lol: lovin the irony...

Maria...oh I mean Ma$ha...:yeah:

Who says she's more hype and style than substance?

Maria's lead can mainly be attributed to the US Open series runner up finish. She was this close to winning that too but oh well. But even then, Maria never fails to surprise and amaze. As someone said, you can't say she doesn't work her butt off for what she has. She just keeps on winning. Well done Masha! Keep the titles and slams coming! :)

Haha yeah and the tour is after more money for the players! Women tennis players must surely be the highest paid female athletes in sports? :confused: :scratch:
