So i wanna absolutely open this topic because Mary is the number one and it's a great feeling to see Mary'name at the top of a ranking list :drool:

To earn points this week, Mary will have to go AT LEAST to quarters in LA !

Moreover, is she reaches quarters, and even is Kim wins LA, Mary will stay one week more to the number one place :bounce:

The winner of the US Open Series will receive double the prize money at the Us Open. The second will receive an additionnal 50% and the third one and additional 25%.
Those bonuses only concern the singles competition.

It's so cool. But for example the 2nd and 3rd will receive 50% more only if they win the whole thing or even if they lose for example in the QF or SF?

I have no idea, the site only gives exemple for a player losing into quarters, semis or final ... or winning the title, but it's not written that the players need to go AT LEAST to quarter to receive more so i don't know ... :confused:
if u find smthing about that ... tell me please
