How Much Are Guest Commentators Paid?

I was wondering how much guest commentators like Jim Courier and Tracy Austin, who recently commentated at the Australian Open for channel 7, would be paid for going to another country's Grand Slam tournament for a fortnight and providing commentary?

As much as $100,000 or possibly even more?

Thankyou.

P.S. During the tournament I became very annoyed hearing people pronounce Djokovic's name differently so can I get someone to settle for me how his name is meant to be pronounced because I always thought it was just pronounced as "Jokovich" while I keep hearing people pronounce his name as either "Jokeovich" and in some cases as "Yokovich".

So am I right and is everyone else just trying to be elitest snobs by trying to pronounce the name in as many different ways as they can (like when I hear people pronounces Baghdatis' surname as "Baghdartis", that sort of snobbery just really frustrates me).

Haha I know right, cause whenever people pronounce my confusing last name wrong I walk over and deck them in the face for trying to disrespect me.

Easily six figures for high profiles. John Mac at the aust open a few years ago springs to mind as being a waste of money.

I'd go on for free to give my opinion as a "guest" commentator

Go Knowles, Murray, Hewitt, Ivanovic, Tursunov, Mirnyi, Ancic, Hantuchova, Gasquet, Djokovic, Gulbis, Nieminen, Booray and the Bryans!
