I have no worries with the prize money increasing in R1 and R2 but it should remain on the same level for the later rounds

No it doesn't. You need to do some research in this thread where there have been plenty of issues spoken about in regard to this.

Players are the ones who create the revenue, it's not the sponsors or corporates people want to see. Next of all when they are getting less than 20% of the revenue generated which has to go through the seven rounds. They wanted an increase for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd round losers, that was the point of the negotiations.

Well, how else guys like Stakhovsky are gonna afford that new ferrari? Not by being better tennis players, that's for sure We are certainly missing the star power the scrubs offer, they should increase prize money to $1,000,000 for losing in R1 so these tennis superstars acknowledge our MM tournament with their presence.

Why should international tennis players suffer lower income because of Australian tennis? Or even care about it? Most countries don't even have a Grand Slam, so Australia is still in a very good position financially.

Still I know that the French tennis federation said they were very concerned about that, as in next years they have to ensure in the meantime the building of the new Roland-Garros and the financements of the federation.

It's not only about corporates and sponsors (the latter ones being rather expected to bring more money to the tournaments than what they take from it )

I can understand if you say that the French tennis federation has too much money comparing to other federations and they should cut their programs as Tennis Australia will probably do, but don't make it sound as if it's only about sponsors.
