The appearance fees are rumored to be around $500,000 in Dubia for the ladies, and obviously she's going to be on the high-end. I think the first year of these tournaments, when she played and won them both, the rumor was a million or more.

I don't think it's anything to be ashamed of. If I was a tournament director, I'd pay her all I could afford. She's popular everywhere, she'll actually show up, and she rarely loses early.

You're just bitter that she gets more appearance fees than Jankovic. That means the WTA cares less about Jankovic than the un-interesting Hingis. :)

Ok, then the tournaments care more about having Hingis than Jankovic. You could check the Gold Exempt list etc. and see that the WTA has the same feeling.

First off - The WTA does not pay appearance fees, its organisers who pay players appearance fees

Second - Martina Hingis is very popular worldwide, definately one of the top 5 most marketable female tennis players

True.

Martina was rumored to be even ontop of Mauresmo and Sharapova last year.

$10,000 and....200 camels....

Hahahaha, I bet the 2 million quoted is a little too high, maybe 500,00 is enough thats already about half a grandslam.

Article by Jürg Vogel NZZ am Sonntag(Sunday paper of the “Neue Zürcher Zeitung”) January 14, 2007


The tournament directors love Hingis.

The Swiss is much in demand on the tour and gets also privileges.

Ahead of the Australian Open, Martina Hingis did not win any title at the tournaments of Gold Coast and Sydney. Nevertheless she got already a prestige success for 2007. In a vote by the tournament director for the Marquee Value she got the most points from the three parts(Europe, America, Rest of the World). This means, that the she is highly regarded: all WTA Tournaments want to have Hingis at their draws.

The first on the Gold Exempt List are Mauresmo, Sharapova and Henin. In the second group Hingis leads as no. 4 before Kuznetsova and Dementieva. Martina is 3 positions better than her ranking. On the quiet there are rumours that Martina got enough points to take over the lead together with Sharapova.

This has a lot to do with the politics in women tennis. First there are the agencies, whichs have rights at tournaments and players. Mauresmo,.Hingis and Dementieva have contracts with the US Octagon, Sharapova with IMG. The agents direct there clients to events where they get most dollars. Besides, the Exempt-Players have also duties. They have to play in the mininum twelve tier I or tier II tournaments. For each half year, Martina can be forced by the WTA Tour to participate at two tournaments. Good conduct will be rewarded at the end of the year with a cheque from the 4 millions dollars pool.
