Even in a Wimbledon marathon, pro tennis pays
Even the loser, Mahut, earned $16,801.87 (£11,250), the prize money for exiting in the first round. That's more than $1,527 an hour. Park Avenue shrinks would sell their id for that rate. Isner pocketed at least $28,003 for advancing to the second round.
The exhausted players made out a lot better than fans who bought a $29.87 grounds pass on the first day of the match. As is policy, no free continuation tickets were issued, Wimbledon confirmed to WalletPop.
