How much does a coach get paid?

I was wondering how much does a coach get paid, especially coaches from the top players.

For exemple Justine Henin works for a long time with Rodriques. It seems sometimes she can't without him and he has done great things for Justine. She has to pay him well, because she doesn't want him to go to another player who pays more.

I know players have to do the tennis job, but for some players like Henin coaches are very important. What do they get? 10% or 25% from the money of top players or much more less? I think it pays good!

Re: How much does a coach get paid?

Players pay $3,000 to $4,000 per month for an individual coach, and fees for court time and hitting partners can easily run an additional $2,000, said youth coach Viktor Yanchuk.

I would guess top players also pay a percentage of their earnings too.

Re: How much does a coach get paid?

Ive heard a figure of around 10% of their earnings. So if its a top player a coach would earn something like 100,000 to 200,000 a year. Thats just what I heard it culd be more.

I cannot imagine that to be true. Can you imagine Justine after a 1.4ml at the uso giving Carlos that kind of money, that is probably what her room alone costs, it would be an insult to him. A percetage sounds more like it. Perhaps that is what the lower ranked players would pay.

Re: How much does a coach get paid?

The coaches of the top players make bank, I'm sure. Wasn't it Clijsters' coach who quit on her after she won her first slam because she only gave him a couple thousand of her earnings?

Re: How much does a coach get paid?

wow what a thread bump. I think it depends on the level of the player and the reputation of the coach. The coaches of the top few players make serious bank I would guess.

I think I read somewhere that after her first slam win he got paid an extra 7,500 and that he made the comment "I learned my lesson". A week after winning the slam he quit.

By virtue of winning the USO Series, Clijsters doubled her USO prize money from $1.1 million to $2.2. million, which at the time, was the largest payout ever in women's sports. Out of that, she only gave her coach a $9,000 bonus. Needless to say, that was a slap in the face, and he quit a week later.

Re: How much does a coach get paid?

Clijsters should have made her coach eat a big bowel of spiders and maybe then he wouldn't be so ungrateful he was able to ride on the coatail's of her talent and awesomeness.

The only figure I ever remember seeing reported was Brad Gilbert £750,000/year with the LTA (Murray)
