The women’s champion won $700,000, while the top man won $605,000. The women’s finalist won $350,000, and the men’s won $295,500. Semi-Finalists were paid almost equally; women received $150,000 and the men received $148,100 http://www.tennisnews.com/exclusive.php?pID=27758 What are everyone's thoughts on this????
