"Pay her"—Rachel Stuhlmann supports Fiona Crawley as she frets about forgoing $81,000 US Open earnings to stay in college.

Tennis celebrity Rachel Stuhlmann supported Fiona Crawley as she expressed her unhappiness about losing her 2023 US Open prize money.

The 2023 US Open was Crawley's Grand Slam debut. The 21-year-old overcame Reka Luca Jani, 

 Timea Babos, and Kimberly Birrell in the qualifications to become the first active University of North Carolina women's player to compete in a Major main draw.

The American lost 6-2, 6-4 against former world No. 11 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the first round. 

Fiona Crawley said that she would have to forfeit $81,000 in prize money from Flushing Meadows to remain NCAA-eligible after her US Open departure.

Tennis players can only receive $10,000 in prize money each year, under NCAA rules. 

The 21-year-old lamented having to give up her prize money while NCAA basketball and football stars receive lucrative Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) sponsorships.

Crawley received social media support from tennis celebrity Rachel Stuhlmann.

 She urged the NCAA to find a solution and give the 21-year-old her prize. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova defeated Fiona Crawley in the first round of a Grand Slam main draw debut.

The former world No. 11 defeated the American 6-2, 6-4 to progress to the 2023 US Open second round.
