"I wouldn't say I don't like it, because everyone might like it," Pliskova said before leaving for Shenzhen, but added in one breath: "It is unfortunate that it will only be divided among the eight best, which will get income anyway." If I choose, it will increase the first round of the Grand Slam and produce more people. "
A year ago, Pliskova got $ 497,000 to advance to the semi-losing semi-final group. This year he will get $ 2,095 million for the same results. "It's a year-end bonus, but I will go there even if it's less money than last year," he said.
This year's undefeated champion will receive a check for $ 4,725 million (more than $ 109 million), the biggest bonus in women's sports history. Petra Kvitova took $ 1.75 million eight years after the victory at the Masters in Istanbul.
"We are happy that and the WTA can get sponsors. Maybe that's why it's played in China, because the money is there," Kvitova said. Tennis players have far higher subsidies than men who share nine million dollars in London. "It's good to know that we have a bigger grant for Masters than men because we have been struggling to get direct prizes for a long time. They have used grand gramslams and this is the next step," Kvitova said.
Even double players get high prizes. An invincible couple who wins gets one million dollars. "Women's sports have never been seen before. There are bombs to play with prizes of this size and you can see that the Chinese are interested in playing tennis there," said Barbora Strýcová, number one double, playing with Sie Shui from Taiwan. -Women.
The second Czech pair in the doubles in this year's peak season were last year's finalists Barbora Krejčíková with Kateřina Siniaková.
