Well, i dont believe that acting like that can be considered as a "class act". Many top players get extra $$ for playing the tourneys, no matter the outcome of his matches. If any player in this position dont do that, his benefits gonna be lower.. And dont say those player dont need the extra $$, i know they dont: thats their job.
