On April 23rd, Beijing time, WTT Macau Championship entered the final day of competition, which has become a performance of national table tennis. The coaching staff can also relax and watch the game. As the women’s singles won the semi-finals in advance, Ma Lin has already watched the game in the audience one day in advance. The results of women’s singles are still good. This year, three consecutive high-level events all won the semi-finals. Although the men’s singles didn’t win the semi-finals, they all won the championship and runner-up. The finals were all held among table tennis players.
Players’ hard work, for honor, for bonus, for world ranking, etc., bonus is an indispensable part of the game, and it is also a very important part, especially for high-level events, which attract experts to participate and compete for higher bonuses. The championship is second only to the Grand Slam level.
The singles champion of the championship can get 240,000 RMB, the second place is about 180,000 RMB, the top four is about 120,000 RMB, the top eight is about 100,000 RMB, and the top 16 is about 80,000 RMB. There is still a bonus of 60,000 RMB after stopping the first round. If the level is low, the champion is only tens of thousands of yuan, and the first round is even lower by several thousand yuan. Therefore, taking a high-level champion can offset many low-level bonuses. In addition, the points of the championship will be 1400 points for winning the championship and 1000 points for the runner-up, so it is also important for the world ranking. The reason why Qian Tianyi can quickly squeeze into the top ten is to reach the final at the highest level Grand Slam.
The table tennis won two championships, two runners-up and two runners-up. The results were gratifying. The champions of the first two stops were Sun Yingsha and Fan Zhendong, and this stop was changed. Chen Meng, Manyu Wang and Wang Chuqin did not reach the final in the first two stops, and Malone reached the final in Singapore and won the runner-up. The table tennis was still fierce, which was more conducive to progress.
In men’s singles, Wang Chuqin and Ma Long are 240,000 and 180,000, then 420,000, Fan Zhendong Top Eight is 100,000, Liang Jingkun Top 16 is 80,000, and Lin Shidong is 60,000 in the first round. The men’s singles won a total of 660,000 yuan.
In women’s singles, Manyu Wang and Chen Meng are 240,000 and 180,000, which is also 420,000; Sun Yingsha and Wang Yidi each get 120,000; Qian Tianyi gets 100,000; Chen Xingtong gets 60,000 in the first round, totaling 820,000 yuan, which makes a total of 1.48 million yuan.
It is already very high to get such a bonus in a week’s game. Of course, it can’t be different from football and basketball in commercial value. If there is a market and commercial value of football, the bonus in table tennis will naturally be higher.
For Guoping, it’s a luxury prize. The four finalists, Malone, Wang Chuqin, Chen Meng and Manyu Wang, got a combined prize of 840,000, but Sun Yingsha was more sorry, only getting 120,000. For other associations, it is more miserable. Most of them stop the first round or the second round. Because of the limited places, many players are not qualified to participate in the competition. They must participate in low-level competitions, and some need to start from the qualifiers.
As for the final share, it is said to be 40%. If it is really 40%, it will not even be half, but it must be admitted that there are so many bonuses announced by the ITTF. For example, Sun Yingsha grabbed 770,000 yuan in Singapore, 750,000 yuan in Fan Zhendong, and 240,000 yuan in Xinxiang, all with 1 million yuan in less than a month.
