Anybody who has first hand experience on how much a pro would spend over a year? Somebody was raving about how much Victoria got from the title recently and I just think that barely covers a long list expenses over the season (well assuming one doesn't win a title very other tournament and so forth...) A simple run down on cost/expenses: Coach - must have some kind of base salary and bonuses Trainer - same as above Travel expenses, hotel for the team - don't suppose you get all that for free in big tournaments Training facilities for the tournament - do they got it for free? Racquests - sure, that could be free Strings - not sure if they are free... Stringer - that's what, $100 per racket? 6-8 per match? Gear, shoes, etc - these could be free PR, manager, agent - these depends on how well u can get job outside of the court. Without winning some title or top 4 finishes in the big ones, how do a pro support all these expenses?? Can somebody share some insights? U can spend 6 figures easy per year!
