I was at the Kroger St. Jude website and saw the prize money break down:

The men's winner gets nearly $100,000 more than the women's winner :eek: Even a men's semifinalist gets more than the women's winner :eek::eek::o

You can't really compare as WTA and ATP have different tournament categories.

But yes, men receive a lot more prize money than women in general.

I think it's just a matter of the men's event being a higher 'tier' than the women's.

I think a couple years ago they had Andy,James Blake, Taylor Dent...ect.

I think the winner in the sydney event this year for the women got more money than the men. Its like what GoDominique said, joint tourneys count as differnt tiers in some cases.

The men's is a higher quality than the Tier III's women's.
