It will be nice if Wimbledon paid out the prize fund to the players (the top 128 who would have made the main draw can share the main draw money) while the next 128 could share qualifiers money. This would be quite helpful especially for the players outside the top 100...

How are below 150 ranked players going to cope when the tournament revenue dries up? Here’s one article highlighting the plight of women players.

Obviously our guys are struggling too :-(

Looks like Wimbledon did pay out 25000 GBP for 128 main draw players and half that for the 112 qualifiers (for both men and women). Prajnesh, RamK and Ankita would have collected the qualifiers share but I think Sumit Nagal at #127 should have collected the main draw share. Although these numbers are quite modest, it is better than nothing.

Not bad at all. Sumit received a total of US$ 113K last year. This year he received $23K before tour shut down, now he gets $25K for Wimbledon ( provided he got the main draw money), hopefully he will get around $25K this year when tour resumes making a total of $75K against $113K. Considering his expenses would have gone down too drastically, net he would not be too bad financially compared to last year. I guess Prajnesh and Ankita would not be too bad off.

Hmm. Maybe a kind moderator will change the topic to just ATP Tour Suspended due to COVID-19.

The Citi Open in Washington, DC, where Indians have done well in recent years, has been cancelled. I suspect the US Open too is in some danger.
