The champion of Wimbledon has always enjoyed big winnings for lifting the world’s most prestigious tennis trophy. Year after year, hundreds of the best tennis players on the planet compete on the iconic grass courts of SW19, all vying for the ultimate title on the ATP circuit, but as Wimbledon reveal this year’s prize money, it’s certainly not only the winner who takes home a generous prize.
How much does the winner of Wimbledon get?
Since 2007, the prize money has been the same for both the Men’s and Women’s categories at Wimbledon, with the winners and runners-ups of this year’s Single’s tournament taking home £2.4 million (~$4.5 million AUD) and £1.2 million (~$2.3 million) respectively.
For current Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic, this will be another opportunity to add a record eighth Wimbledon title to his 23 Grand Slams when he takes to Centre Court this year. He’ll come up against the new generation of tennis stars all hoping to challenge tennis’ most decorated player and lift their maiden Wimbledon title, in the first tournament since the likes of Roger Federer retired.
Wimbledon Prize Money 2023
The Wimbledon Championships has announced a record-breaking prize money for this year’s tournament, an 11.2% increase on the reported 2022 figure totalling £44.7 million (~$85.5 million) which is set to be distributed amongst all the competing players.
“We are delighted to offer record prize money to the players competing at The Championships this year, with double-digit increases across the majority of events,” said Ian Hewitt, Chairman of the All England Club. “Our ambition with this distribution is to return the singles champions and runners-up prize money to the levels in 2019 prior to the pandemic whilst, alongside, providing deserved support for players in the early rounds of the event.”
Wimbledon’s reported £2.4 million prize money is undoubtedly huge, but have you ever wondered how much the other players will receive for their efforts?
