I myself did not watch the video at the time and instead read the comments..... and some made me believe he was talking about income during the 1970s.
I looked the actual video back over and it seems as though he was referring to around 1991 or 1992, when the film was taped.
Even still the median household income in America during 1992 was apparently roughly 30,000 dollars, so him alone bringing in 52,000 dollars sounds a little high.
His income alone would be like someone making roughly 85,000 dollars today..... while possible it is unlikely.
He probably just stretched the truth a bit.... no big deal.
As a side note, I liked how when they asked Serena "What tennis players game would you like to be similar to" or something to that effect she responded "I hope people emulate me".
Boy, did she get that part right
