Prize money already going downhill ?
This week I noticed that the prize-money for the tournament in Stuttgart has been decreasing from 1 million to 800.000 and now only 500.000 $. And it was similar for the tournament in Munich.
Question: Is the ATP generally lowering the prize-money right now ? Or have these tournaments just been down-graded ?
I'm asking this because there have been rumours that prize-money for the Masters Series events is supposed to decrease 30 % and I thought this might have something to do with that.
