I didn't really think about it but yeah... I can't even think of any recent all-Aussie teams that have had any success? Who has there been??
Also, in addition to their rankings points, their prizemoney will mean that are set for basically the whole year, won't it? How much do they get?
$118000 each for reaching the final, $237000 each if they win. http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/...ize_money.html
Barty has not turned pro so she doesn't get any prize money.(this according to wta websiste but her status "pro" or "amateur" may have change recently)
