This year’s Wimbledon tournament will have record compensation for players, with winners of its two single championships taking home $2.5 million each.
The record amount of cash up for grabs comes as Wimbledon plans to host full-capacity crowds for the first time in three years at London’s All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club.
Total prize money will be $50.4 million, an 11% increase compared to 2021.
It also represents a 5.4% increase from 2019’s pre-pandemic tournament.
Players who lose in the first round will pocket roughly $63,000.
Runner-ups of the two single championships will take home more than $1.2 million.
Wimbledon will be played from June 27 to July 10.
