Prior to the 1970's, tennis players did not win large amounts of money, as they do, today. The "honor" of winning a trophy, along with the fame and glory that accompanied it, was deemed far more important. Since sponsorships were very rare in those days, most tennis players were well-to-do, and could afford to travel the world to play the sport with their own resources. Today, professional tennis players do not have a fixed salary. They make money from endorsements, sponsorships, and prize money. Tennis players can make a few hundred or thousand dollars winning matches in low-level and satellite tournaments, and hundreds of thousand dollars by winning major championships, such as those of the Grand Slam events.
