Fernandez RG win worth $$ to Tennis Canada

The French Tennis Federation’s Trophée International Philippe Chatrier disburses funds to federations based on their results in the Roland Garros junior events.

It’s a million Euros ($1.13 million USD, $1.5 million CAD), divided amongst the boys and girls, although the exact distribution is a French federation secret.

Canada, with only champion Leylah Annie Fernandez in the main draw, finished second just behind Russia on the girls’ side. So hopefully they share the … love with her.

The other question, as you see Russian federation president Shamil Tarpischev (looking thrilled with the 2018 trophy): did they give Tarpischev a second trophy?
