Default 5k USD or meet your idol?

What would you take, the 5,000 USD or meeting your idol?

I´d take the "meet idol"

The meeting would not be a quick handshake.. you would get a nice window of time.
You get 1 Hour, you can choose drink coffee talk, play tennis or whatever.
Discuss.

Depends on what I am allowed to do with my idol (Anna Kournikova)

If it was just a handshake, I'd take the 5K. But if it was a "nice window of time", as you say, then I'd take the meeting. Although I'd probably be ultra-nervous and tongue-tied, lol.

The money of course, even if it was something like 10 euros. I don't really 'idolize' people based on their tennis performances.

This. Well, not €10, probably something like €200.

Federer, Nadal and Djokovic pander to plutocrats and charge huge appearance fees. The "trickle down effect" means that tournaments like the Heineken Open now have to pay appearance money for racketeers that many of us have never heard of. It's close to extortion.

At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.

Exactly this. For a quick meeting I also choose the money. But if for example they offer me 24 hours with my idol (playing tennis against him included), I will probably choose that lifetime experience instead of money.

5K is real money for basically everyone here.

Changing it to like £100 or something might make it more of a worthwhile question .

I'd probably pay 5k to hit with Johnny Groove, there I said it.

I would meet Djoker over the money, but only if it was for a few hours or so - eg watching a match in the box,and only if I could meet his wife too.
