I really enjoy listening to the grunts and shrieks of the overpaid bashing balls over nets.
Overpaid?? Surely not......out of £28 million up for grabs in this years Wimbledon, here's some of the breakdown for both men and women's prize money....
Finalist £ 2 million
runner up £1 million
semi finalist £500,000
Quarter finalist £250,000
As my careers advisor in high school in the 60s clearly forecasted--- forget sport; there's no money in it and, as for a music career-- Rock and roll is a passing fad, so get yourself a proper job to aim for. Like the civil service which paid £13/ week. That was clearly the way forward
