Caroline Wozniacki tells the Telegraph that she thinks that tennis players are underpaid in comparison to other athletes. The 21-year-old Dane has earned around $13 million in prize money during her career, and is estimated to make at least $8 million per year off the court from endorsements. "I think tennis players are actually underpaid, but I might be a little biased. I like to think we are rewarded for the hard work we put in," said Wozniacki, who added that she is in favor of equal prize money.

To which I say: Laugh

She will however be delighted to hear the following:


Roland Garros organizers said last Friday that the overall purse for the tournament is going up by 7 percent to $24.6 million. The men's and women's singles champions will each receive $1.64 million, an increase of 4.17 percent.

Proportionately, the biggest increases are for those who are knocked out early. First-round losers will receive a 20 percent rise, from $19,700 to $23,670.

Prize money for R1 losers is actually pretty good at a slam, it's at some lesser events where it could do with a bump.

I wonder...do wildcard R1 losers get $20k?
