The Proximus Games in Antwerp are very beneficial for the Belgian tennis players. Not only did they win a lot of WTA-points, they also earned a lot of money!!

Justine Henin: 49,500$ :o
Els Callens: 11,800$
Elke Clijsters: 6,275$ (Elke earned more this week than in the whole of her career!! :eek: And she didn't even win a match...)
Laurence Courtois: 2,875$
Patty Van Acker: 2,448$
Caroline Maes: 2,350$
Leslie Butkiewicz: 1,874$
Kirsten Flipkens: 1,825$ (Kirsten earned more than twice as much, as in the previous tournaments she's played in)

The weird thing is that Daphne van de Zande earned nothing :confused:

How is this possible? Doesn't she earn money anymore because she's "retired"?? Can anyone please explain this to me?

Maybe because she retired she's not in the statistics anymore? :confused:

I'm quite sure she didn't play for free. ;)
