This must be some record of sorts. i know in 07 Justine broke the 5m earned in a single season. All on the back of 3 tournies! Amazing!

Not all of the increase is due to inflation. The players (especially the women) simply earn more now in adjusted dollar amounts.

Thanks to the women who demanded to be payed equal prize money at the majors, YEC, Miami and IW.:yeah: It is now paying dividend especially to those who think they are worthy as it should be. Graf was one of those who didn't think women deserved to be payed less therefore she deserved the "unequal" pay she got.;)

BTW what a smart decision Richard made after watching someone made $40,000 for one match to $1.5m for one of his daughters plus the runner up prize money also. How much money did Vee get?

How much money did Vee get?

That's what I was wondering. I know if Serena had lost she would have gotten 780k so I don't know if that's the same for Venus since she won less matches?

Big deal.

It only due to the 30% inflation in prizemoney this year.

okaaay...but it's still 6.2 mill :unsure: did you earn even a tenth of that this year? :unsure:

Did you?

Justine still has the record IMO.

Count the 30% inflation for 2009 and she would. Fact.

Anyway this stat is arbitary anyway and doesnt measure the best season ever. Navratilova was getting 1.2M in 1984 and she completely dominated that season.

If it's an arbitrary stat then why bring JuJu into this at all?

Obviously amount prize money doesn't automatically mean greatest season ever, but it's a nice accomplishment for Serena.

Stop raining on the parade.

I agree, this is about Serena's amazing accomplishment and the advancement of women in terms of prize money. JuJu would be happy for Serena, and women in general for this, I'm sure.
