    Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena is seen during the Australian Open in January.

    The Australian Open has "announced the single biggest prize-money jump in its history, with a record pool of A$30M ($30.8M) -- up A$4M from this year -- on offer at next year's event," according to Linda Pearce of the SYDNEY MORNING HERALD. The move is designed to "avoid the mooted strike from the world's best men agitating for a greater share of tournament revenue," but organizers remain resolute in refusing to offer a fixed percentage share of the Grand Slam's income. Tennis Australia CEO Steve Wood said the "breakdown of the prize money would be released after consultation with the players."
