under paid for the work and time they do. i mean a player sitting on last set of bench in NBA makes 2-4 million, only playing when his team is down by 20 with min to go. but NBA makes more money and does better marketing for the game.

Well, tennis players in the most occasions can decide where they will play, when they will play, who will coach them, etc.

True. But tennis players also pay for their coaches and trainers, unlike many other sports.

well NBA players play a shorter season,- so that even out with the when they will play, since tennis season is 11months

where- NBA players can sign with which ever team they want

who the coach will be- that can all be done. just like in tennis high profiles players can pick coachs- see Kobe Bryant.

I think Mike is right,soccer players complain about busy schedules but it`s nothing compared to a tennis player.Soccer players play once a week for 90 minutes,in very rare cases twice a week,but a tennis player has to play 5 times in a week and a match usually lasts more than 90 minutes.

Prize money for the top players represents less than half of their total income. Does anyone have the list of income from all sources for the players to compare. Maria Sharapova earned around $2m from playing, but I think total earnings from all sources are in excess of $10m.

The NBA has a much wider fan base and thus can easily support the lower ranked players. Even worldwide it has a larger fan base. Look at the basketball leagues in Europe. American players who can't make the NBA, can make a decent living playing over in Europe or Asia.

There was a story about ten years ago about the benchwarmer for the Denver Nuggets making $200,000 a year. He averaged just a few minutes a game.

Tennis players don't play every week, unless they want to, and unless we're talking here about a top 5 player, they don't always reach the final rounds of the tournaments, so it's not every week that they play 5 matches.

Tennis players don't play every single week, unless they want to.

where- NBA players can sign with which ever team they want

They may, but they don't leave North America for the whole season and they can't the chose the opponents, and thus the places they are going to.

who the coach will be- that can all be done. just like in tennis high profiles players can pick coachs- see Kobe Bryant.

OK, but only high profile players can do this.

True. But tennis players also pay for their coaches and trainers, unlike many other sports.

It all comes down to the lifestyle. Some prefer being an entrepreneur, running their own businesses, and some prefer being employees of a big and successful company, with a high level function, a good salary and many benefits.
