if you look on tennis.com under players and rankings sub-banner along the top there is a prizemoney list...

only the world top 22 rank earned over $1 million..for the whole year..whats that ? about 800'000 ??..its about 4 weeks pay for wayne rooney..

ok the top 10 are getting plenty but itsmeant to be a global sport but alot of players get provincial pay..all the top 150-200 players should be getting way more..in england/britain we often hear of men / women giving up tennis because they can have a stable salary, and/or earn more as an ex-pro tennis coach somewhere.
