I don't think their is prize money in tennis at the olympics. Not according to Jimmy Courier.

Is this true?

I'm not sure how much it is for Americans.
But I think in Canada, gold medalist gets 3 million dollars I think.
Kind of little though considering how much they did for their country, and $ Cdn value:p.

and not like the people from every country get money if they medal. Really the money is sometimes a bonus left up to each country's particular Olympic Committe
