Women's Kremlin Cup winner to collect more than men's

Whoever wins the women's competition in the 13th Kremlin Cup tournament due in Moscow from September 28 to October 6 is set to collect $166,000 in prize cash, $29,000 more than the prize set for the men's event.

The Kremlin Cup's total prize money, $2,224,000, is divided equally between the tournament's men's and women's competitions. However, 32 players have signed up for the men's event, while the women's only involves 28 players.

For that reason, with equal prize funds, female players would take home more cash than men.

The Kremlin Cup is expected to put on court a whole slew of ace tennis players, including Venus Williams, Jennifer Capriati, Jelena Dokic, Martina Hingis, Elena Dementieva, Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Marat Safin, Tommy Haas, Roger Federer and Thomas Johansson, among others.
