Prize Money (rate at 55c)
Total: $A 1,718,812 ($US 945,000)
Women: $A 1,027,272 ($US 565,000)
Men: $A 690,910 ($US 380,000)

at the Adidas International for example.

Does this mean women's tennis is really more "profitable"?

The WTA has a really simple system for ordering tournaments, like Tier I, II, etc. But the ATP is confusing. I know TMS is the highest, but whats after that? Can someone just explain quickly?

Prize Money around $800K+ (60CR) eg Barcelona, Kitzbuhel

nope ...... there just International Series

there aren't many ISG events
Acapulco and Stuttgart were lowered to IS this yr

February: Rotterdam, Memphis,
April: Barcelona
July: Kitzbuhel
August: Indianapolis, Washington
September: Tokyo
October: Vienna

There used to be a ruling that when an ISG event(s) was on, no other events took place that week.
so there used to be 2 ISG tourns in a week.

It seems weird that theres either the highest level, TMS, or the lowest level, IS, most of the time, and not much in between. Thanks for the info.
