So if someone wins the TMC without losing any matches they earn 750 points yet if a player wins after having been beaten in a round robin match they only get 650 points?
Should the finalist get to the final unbeaten and then lose do they get 500 points regardless of their tournament performance?
Yes, every RR victory=100 points (and 120K$), a SF win=200 points (and 350K$) and winning the final=250 points (and 720K$).
Also, every player is rewarded 90K$ for qualification.
Theoretically, in one of the RR groups one player could win all of his 3 matches while the others win 1 each and lose the other 2, enabling one of them to make it to the SF.
If the mentioned 'Lucky Loser' then proceeds to win the tournament he will only get 550 points (and 1.28M$) for his victory
Hewitt (2001) and Federer (2004-5) won all 5 matches, resulting in 750 points + 1.52M$ in their bank account
