Wimbledon on Thursday announced that the total prize money for The Championships 2022 will be a record 40.3 million pounds (USD 50.5 million) and host capacity crowds for the first time in three years at this year’s event.
The organisers added that the men’s and women’s singles champions will each receive 2 million pounds.
The grasscourt Grand Slam event, which is scheduled from June 27 to July 10, had its ranking points taken away by the men’s ATP and women’s WTA after it opted to exclude players from Russia and Belarus following the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
“From the first round of the qualifying competition to the champions being crowned, this year’s prize money distribution aims to reflect just how important the players are to The Championships…,” said Ian Hewitt, Chairman of the All England Club.
The total prize money last year was a little over 35 million pounds, with Novak Djokovic and Ash Barty taking home 1.7 million pounds each after being crowned champions.
