No it is not a typo. Later on this year we would pay Nadal 300,000 US Dollars to play an exhibition match. When I told my TO organizer friend that it seemed crazy to spend that much on appearance fee, she said "umm, 300,000 is not that much. We paid more for Roger last year".
Last year Jarkko also lamented this fact with us, he said "oh we played all year to earn 500,000 US Dollars, and these guys only show up and get the same amount!"
