Default $ 95,068,120 up for grabs this year

that is the total prize money for the 2007 Season. Not counting US Open Series Bonus' or appearance fees, with those, my guess would be around 102,000,000 to 105,000,000, probably more, some of those appearance fee's are sick

with that said, tennis players are still under paid.

Yes if he is registered elsewhere (not MC, but more likely Dubai) he could get around it. However he probably spends enough time in Switz and Swiss law requires a resident of the country pay taxes on all income earned. If he does that, then (I don't know US tax law but I would guess: ) US law exempts the money from being taxed in the US. If he has good accountants they probably figure out which one nets him the most.

Oh yes they do
They have great breaks for the very high income earners, who are foreign. This explains why people like Becker and Mauresmo and I think Schumacher is the biggest example make Switzerland their residential place for tax purposes. These same laws are inapplicable for high earners who are Swiss

I don't know why someone said they are underpaid, they get paid what they can get paid but the fact is that tennis is a 3rd rate sport in commercial and certainly media sense. That's the fault of people leading this sport who can't get enough of new younger fans
