Professional Tennis playes are awared prize money by the number of rounds they advance in a tournament offering prize money. Also, bonus dollars are awarded for matches won in the various series events (i.e. US open series, Masters Cup events) . In addition, Olympic and Davis Cup type matches do not award prize money for players based upon advancing in the tournament. Some tennis playes are provided apperance fees to play in a demonstration match regardless of the outcome.
