If sponsors cover his travel, that that's good money. But if he's paying for coach, physio, travel, etc., I bet he barely breaks even on that money.


This is an interesting USTA study:

Study says that the average pro will have expenses of $143,000 per year. Thus, a pro has to be ranked between 100-200 to break even financially on prize money alone.

And he made $480,000 in prize money alone last year, and $340,000 in 2011.

Not too shabby I'd say.

That makes sense. Guys ranked in the 300s and above are playing in Futures tournaments that might pay out 10K to the outright winner of the tournament. Pro Tennis is a tough damn sport, man. It's dog eat dog. The very very top guys are loaded beyond belief, sure. But everybody else is just grinding away, trying to slowly climb the ladder.
