I was wondering if the players who participate in junior Grand Slams earn any points and money. I didn't find any information about it. Anyone knows how it works for the juniors?

No money.
Points count towards the Junior rankings, no impact on their senior ranking

Thanks for the answer :hatoff:

Seems logical. I would have thought the players were earning some money. At least this is a great opportunity to gain experience on a big stage.

Sounds like USTA sponsors them...
Unless they were kicked out or not in shape for them :fiery:

I think a Junior GS Winner should get 50 or so Pro points :)
I mean, the fields are stronger than that and it would encourage people to play Juniors :)
