Re: Australian Open averts player boycott with increased prizemoney

The $4 million prize money boost is the biggest increase in the history of the event and was one of a raft of initiatives announced for Australian Open 2013 including:

Retired tennis superstar Andre Agassi to play in a special feature match in the Men’s Legends Event
Hawk-Eye to be introduced on Show Courts 2 and 3
New practice and recovery facilities for players, including eight new clay courts in the new National Tennis Centre
Expanded Australian Open Trophy Tour throughout Australia, China and Japan
The inaugural Asia-Pacific Australian Open Wildcard Play-off to be held in China
The new Edwin Flack footbridge connecting the MCG with Melbourne Park and AAMI Park
An expanded Women’s Legends event, including former AO champs Amelie Mauresmo and Lindsay Davenport along with Martina Hingis and Martina Navratilova
A special Legends Lunch on the final Saturday to honour six-time Australian Open winner Roy Emerson
