This week I noticed that the prize-money for the tournament in Stuttgart has been decreasing from 1 million to 800.000 and now only 500.000 $. And it was similar for the tournament in Munich.

Question: Is the ATP generally lowering the prize-money right now ? Or have these tournaments just been down-graded ?

I'm asking this because there have been rumours that prize-money for the Masters Series events is supposed to decrease 30 % and I thought this might have something to do with that.

I've heard that S-Peterbourg tournament increased their prizemoney from $800K to $1M. So, it is not only downhill, apparently..

some tourns have been downgraded due to money difficulties

Kitzbuhel is now on a par with Barcelona as the biggest ATP event outside the Masters.

Some tourns going up, others down.

Masters tourns are in trouble......... doubles which has prizemoney of $500K could be axed.

Noticed more German events in trouble than elsewhere.

Halle was also downgraded a little
winner always got 50 pts, this yr only 45.
