Default Transition from college to Futures and Challengers

Interesting ZooTennis article.

It links to a story about the decline in Challengers, which makes it tougher to climb the pro ranks. It also mentions that Futures tourneys that offered $10,000 in total prize money in 1990 are still offering the same amount today, when it would take $17,000 to match the inflation since 1990.

Awfully tough to get started and make a living if the tennis associations are not going to push for more money in Futures and Challengers.
