As Wang Hao won the World Cup 2010, he received a cheque of 45.000 dollars. Do you think this is a good sum of money for table tennis, or should he have WH received more. In the tennis, some pro tours you can receive up to a million pound's cheque. And this is the world up of our sport!!

What's your views?

I find it pretty strange that the price money is that "low" in table tennis. He deserve more money! :)

Poor pro table tennis players because top basketball players and top baseball players start with millions.

He deserves whatever the market can support for a TT World Cup winner. If the market can support $45K then that is appropriate. This is one thing where passion from smaller numbers cannot make up for the broader popularity of a sport.

All sports in the world must be amateur sports. Money always brings too much differences betwen people .......

The price money should be lower in other sports instead, 45k $ is alot of money.

Meh, it's cuz table tennis isn't promoted properly around the world, and the ITTF seems to always be focusing on the wrong things rather than improving our image. Rule changes never help people get interested.

Have you ever walked into a recreational sport area and find people shocked to hear the game is no longer played to 21?

Yep, just head over the usatt.org and look over different level of sanction competitions
Pay attention to where they stress about Fees, Penalties Fees, Overdue club fees.
Yeah ITTF is laughable, the USATT is more of a joke

I think it is sufficient as world champ in my view is bigger than world cup. Also 45000 US is hundreds of thousands of RMB
