My two proteges are starting to question whether there is enough money in tennis. Both of them are being begged to go into football and basketball programs and both of them could probably make a career in one or the other. And yes, due to the phenomenal athletes that they are, and the esoteric training that they have undergone. I don't want to deprive anyone of their rightful earnings and place in the sports pantheon, but I would much prefer to see them stay in tennis. But realistically, how many men players make any real money in the world? Top ten? twenty? I see what the fiftieth player typically makes, and it is cheeze. Can they supplement that? I mean 500 K Gross? How much do they spend to make that? 280? That is complete peanuts. What a joke this sport is that way? I mean money isn't everything, but this is not great money.
