My jaw dropped when I saw the prize money for both the winner and the runner-up. I mean not too shabby for a two weeks work. I wouldn't mind being a loser in a grand slam tourny with that kind of prize money. I think I may have missed my calling in life. Please, please God, if I ever came back to this world, I would very much like to be a world class tennis player:D. No wonder some of the old tennis players like Martina Nav had sour puss face on during the ceremony. I bet they were thinking to themselves, 'How could God have been so cruel. How come I wasn't a tennis player in this era of equal prize money':devil:
