Default Taylor in Rotterdam

Taylor is continuing his befuddling run in Europe instead of the US in Rotterdam this week.

He plays Berdych tomorrow night in the first round of singles. Very tough match for Taylor I think, considering how good Berdych is indoors. But, hope he can get a win to start turning around his 2006

Do the Tournaments in Europe pay more? And I mean going out in the 1st Round of Tournaments Taylor can't be making that much money anyway

Appearance fees.....that's where the players really make the money

Why do you think Andre is playing in DUBAI instead of his hometown....

Ah, you must remember that I don't have your tennis knowledge. I don't really know much about appearance fees. I have heard of them so I know they exist, but I have no idea how much money is involved

Default Re: Taylor in Rotterdam

Optional tourneys (Aka not the slams and not the masters events) can offer players appearance fees. if you play your first round match you can get it (so if you pull out the day before your match is scheduled, you don't get it). The top players get in the 6 figures. Andre is probably getting at least a half million to show up in Dubai. Andy gets about 200,000-300,000 or so I think. Taylor is obviously not going to get that much, even players lower in the top 10-20 won't get that much, but maybe the tourneys here weren't willing to give Taylor anything but the tourneys in Europe were willing to give him a few thousand, so he showed up. It's all sort of hush-hush.

I remember 2 years ago, I went to the scottsdale tourney and the newspaper published it. Andre pulled out right before the tourney with his nerve problem, and he was supposed to get $300,000. Andy got $150,000 and the other THIRTY players in the draw got to split another $150,000 (didn't say how it was split up, I'm sure lower-ranked players didn't get anything).

There was a bit of uproar this past week because Andre pulled out, thus the tourney gets to keep the hundreds of thousands he would've gotten, but they ALSO got to use his name to sell tickets for months. As someone said, in that case it's like the tourney gets to double-dip.

But considering Taylor won Memphi 3 years ago, it's gotta be money that he plays in Europe now. You'd think just logically that he'd rather play at home, and the only common sense explanation is $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Well I don't really blame Taylor for taking the money. Tho I would rather see him play at home. This his 2nd tough 1st rnd in a row. Taylor and Berdy aren't exactly playing their best at the moment. Hopefully Taylor comes out on top.

No for some reason Taylor seems to be a player who rarely gets a good draw And Taylor could use a good draw for a change!

Taylor won 6-4 7-5! Solid win over a very solid indoor player Berdych. Nice for him to get his FIRST win of the YEAR


Plus with ALL The withdrawals, Taylor has a GREAT chance to go far!
