However, I am totally against all that floating up to the top, to the end of the tournament. More money in tennis needs to be filtering down to the lower ranks to make it affordable for players to compete and so more of them can make a living out of it.
Yeah but you don't want to see players receiving more money for losing. Not a lot more at least. I reckon there should a proportion of GS money that goes directly to futures and challengers. People say the French, British, Australian and US federation use the funds but what about other federations.
