Biggest Money Winner Ever

Here’s an update: last evening Kim Clijsters did indeed beat Mary Pierce 6-3, 6-1 in the final of the women’s draw at the U.S. Open Tennis Championships.

Not only was the 2.2 million dollars Clijsters won the largest monetary award in women’s tennis, but it was the largest monetary award ever in all the history of women’s sports.

Congratulations to Kim Clijsters for now having the honor of both winning the largest purse in women’s sports history and winning her first major tennis title.
