British No. 1 Andy Murray felt happy after he got to know about the prize money rise for French Open. And, he wants Wimbledon authorities to follow the suit. Thus, players can have a bigger chunk of the cash.
Interestingly, the debate has been on between players association and tournament officials that the players should be given high prize money. While talking about these developments, when Murray was asked about the Wimbledon authorities’ and any future plans regarding the increase in paycheque of players, he said, “I'd be surprised if they don't. Each slam wants to be the biggest on the calendar so it'd be hard to see one increasing the money and others not following. For some people, tennis can be just a five or six-year career.”
The Scot further added, “A lot of talk about striking and boycotting came from guys who were ranked between 20 and 100. They were unhappy with the way the prize money was distributed. Hopefully, next year it will be throughout the tournament, not just the first rounds."
Currently, Murray is playing in the Monte-Carlo Masters. He made a fine start to his campaign in Monte-Carlo on Tuesday, as he earned a straight sets 6-0 6-3 victory over his opponent Viktor Troicki and sailed to the third-round of this ATP World Tour Masters Tournament.
