Re: Single Season Prize Money Record under assault

Fed will probably have to turn up to AMS Madrid and Paris to beat that record.
Although I'm not exactly sure how prize money is awarded for the TMC.

I think that shows that prize money hasn't risen that dramatically since 97. Fed has had at least as good a year as Pete did in 97.

I remember the unbeaten winner can get up to 1.5 millions.

Re: Single Season Prize Money Record under assault

Sampras got 2 million for winning the Grand Slam Cup... an event that is no longer played, but had the biggest purse in tennis. Hence his total being so high.

I thought it was only 1 million, but the atp says it's 2: http://www.atptennis.com/en/players/...=S402&x=21&y=9

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Single Season Prize Money Record under assault

Sampy won over $3.7 m in the last 3 events that year (winning GS Cup, Paris and Masters cup)
he also got over $800,000 from the bonus pool at the end of the year (another thing ended by the ATP)
so it will be impressive if fed beats that record..

Feds was actually 100,000 short of it last year ($6.357) and missed Madrid, Paris..

Re: Single Season Prize Money Record under assault

For this comparison to make any kind of sense you'd have to convert 1997 dollars to 2005 dollars.

*Edit* Okay the closest I could get was 2004 dollars. Pete $6,498,311 in 1997 is equivalent to $7,648,120 last year.

If Sampras was born 20 years earlier, he could have won 40 slams in 1969.

I wish they used this kind of math at my workplace.

Please if you're an economist help me out!! Though now that I think about it, using a quickie CPI conversion isn't the most accurate. Listing all the tournaments Pete played in 1997 then finding their equivalent in 2005 and tallying his expectant prize money would be the most accurate. But then you run into the problem of finding substitutes for disbanded tournaments... ah too much work.

I got a CPI table on my desk, let me know if you need me to quote the rates from the past 8 years

I find it hard to believe that the value of money dropped so much that quickly.

Re: Single Season Prize Money Record under assault

Is Federer close to breaking the record for most points won in a single season? Seems like he should be up there.

Djokovic // Del Potro // Paire // Thiem // M. Zverev // Youzhny
Coric // Khachanov // Donaldson // A. Zverev // Bublik
Ferrero // Rafter
