Australian Pro Tour Question

Why do the Mens tournaments have prizemoney of $15,000 whilst the Womens tournaments have prizemoney of $25,000 with the only exception being next year's Burnie Challenger? Just wondering why it isn't equal.

Baker (USA) - Bedene (SLO) - Bellucci (BRA) - Berta (SWE) - Cuevas (URU) - Domijan (USA) - Ebden (AUS) - Estrella (DOM) - Grigelis (LTU) - Guccione (AUS) - Heliovaara (FIN) - Kavcic (SLO) - King (BAH) - Kontinen (FIN) - Kubler (AUS) - Lajovic (SRB) - Matosevic (AUS) - McGee (IRE) - Millman (AUS) - Mitchell (AUS) - Nielsen (DEN) - Nieminen (FIN) - Paire (FRA) - Udomchoke (THA)

Re: Australian Pro Tour Question

I wonder the same thing. Here's a link that demonstrates this. I don't much about how the WTA works but maybe the lowest possible WTA event is US$25,000?

Re: Australian Pro Tour Question

WTA/ITF events go down to $10,000

It all depends on what level of tournament TA apply for from the ITF....Futures are the smaller value tournaments while challengers are $25K and above etc
