Wimbledon Prize Money: How Much Did Nick Kyrgios Win?

The Canberra man is cashing in.

The prize money at every Wimbledon tournament has always been huge, but you may just think Wimbledon prize money is only worth it for the winner. Not so for Australia’s Nick Kyrgios, who despite being runner-up at Wimbledon 2022, still took home a hefty pay packet.

How much does the winner of Wimbledon get?

In 2022, the winner of both the Gentlemen’s Singles and Ladies Singles Championships take home £2 million/AU $3,520,844.78 (conversion correct at the time of publishing). For Novak Djokovic, who ultimately bested his Australian opponent in the men’s Wimbledon final 2022, this will mark his seventh time winning the prestigious trophy. Novak’s win also takes him to 21 Grand Slam title wins, now just 1 behind Spanish tennis player, Rafael Nadal.

In the Ladie’s Singles Championship, it was Elena Rybakina from Kazakstahn who came out on top, against Tunisian player Ons Jabeur.

How much money did Nick Kyrgios win?

Wimbledon 2022 marked Nick Kyrgios’ first Grand Slam final, so regardless of the outcome he knew he could be proud of himself. Ultimately, he lost out to Novak Djokovic, but as runner up, he still took home £1,050,000

While Kyrgios may have lost out on the huge £2 million Wimbledon prize money, as a runner up, he’ll still pocket £1,050,000/AU $1,848,443.51 in prize money.

Wimbledon Prize Money 2022

In 2022, the prize money for Wimbledon is the largest it’s ever been, in fact, the All England Tennis Club says, “The total prize money fund for The Championships 2022 will be a record £40,350,000.” This sum of money is for all events: singles, doubles, wheelchair and invitation doubles.

The £2 million Wimbledon prize money for the winner is undoubtedly huge, but have you ever wondered how much the Wimbledon prize money is for other rounds in the tournament?

One of the big draws for any player getting a chance to play at Wimbledon, is that even if they go home after the first round, they still leave with a considerable amount of money. Here is a breakdown of the Wimbledon prize money by round and by championship:

The amount of prize money awarded to players in the singles tournament totals £28,992,000/AU $50,974,640.83. However, the winner of the Gentlemen’s and Ladies’ singles will actually receive a lower amount of prize money compared to the 2019 tournament, before the Covid-19 pandemic. The winner of Wimbledon in 2019 received prize money of £2,350,000.

Kyrgios has had an incredible Wimbledon tournament and one that has unsurprisingly seen its fair share of controversy. Would we have him any other way? He’s completely shut down journalists asking him questions about alleged spitting at the crowd, has broken Wimbledon dress code rules and has had an online spat with Bernard Tomic (relatively recently before the tournament).

Yet, despite all this, Kyrgios has been playing some sublime tennis and fully deserved to find himself in the Wimbledon final. He may have got a little bit lucky, and it would have been interesting to have seen him play Rafael Nadal.

We can still be proud of King Kyrgios, despite missing out on his first Grand Slam trophy. And now with his prize money, maybe he could buy himself a new Tesla with a paint job that won’t destroy your retinas.

Nick Kyrgios Career Earnings

While the Wimbledon final will mark a huge prize money win for Nick Kyrgios, he already has some considerable career earnings to his name.

He has already won six ATP finals in his career so far, along with two wins in the doubles, the latter of which includes a title win in the doubles at the 2022 Australian Open with partner Thanasi Kokkinakis. All of Nick Kyrgios’ career titles to date have been on the hard court surface. If he wins the Wimbledon final, it will mark his first Grand Slam title on grass.

Nick Kyrgios’ career earnings to date stand at AU $14,498,244

Wimbledon Rankings

Wimbledon 2022 saw a rather peculiar happenstance occur in relation to the rankings of players. This year, the All England Tennis Club decided to ban Russian and Belarusian players from entering the tournament, in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

In doing so, the ATP and WTA, the governing bodies of men’s and women’s tennis, chose to “[strip] Wimbledon of its rankings status in protest,” according to ABC. 

Ranking points are what players earn depending on where they finish in a tournament, and the accumulative total of points earned during a calendar season can help gain them direct entry into future tournaments, without the need to go through qualifying matches.

Quite simply, they’re important.

In doing so, even though Novak Djokovic won Wimbledon 2022, he has dropped from third to seventh in the world rankings, while Nick Kyrgios dropped from 40th to 45th. This drop in ranking could affect Nick Kyrgios’ chances of even being able to enter the final Grand Slam of 2022, the US Open, which is due to start on Monday 29th August.

As ABC further states, “Ordinarily, Kyrgios would have soared to 15 in the world for his Wimbledon run, placing him in position to claim a top-16 seeding at Flushing Meadows.”

“Instead, Kyrgios — unless he climbs the rankings in the next month, when he planned a well-earned break — will be at the mercy of the draw.”
