Does anyone no how much revenue/profit the masters 1000 events make? I read that the total revenue at the Grand Slam events are about $150 million for the Australian Open; $200 million for the French Open and Wimbledon; and $250 million for the U.S. Open, which would mean, that the percentage of revenue devoted to prize money ranges from about 11 percent at the U.S. Open to about 17 percent at the Australian Open. How do the masters 1000 events and end of year masters cup compare with the majors in terms of revenue and profit? And also, out of that revenue what % goes towards prize money?
