The winner in each event will be presented with a historic trophy for their achievement, but they will also receive a substantial cash prize.

However, it’s not just the eventual winner who earns big – the further a competitor advances through the bracket, healthy sums are offered.

Here is the breakdown of the prize money from the men’s and women’s singles events at Wimbledon this year:

Wimbledon 2022: Prize Fund

The total prize fund for the 2022 tournament is £40.35 million (US$49.5 million).

That’s a significant increase from the 2021 event, which saw total prize money totaling just over £35m.

Despite Wimbledon’s historical importance, it is only the third-highest prize money of the four Grand Slam tournaments.

It surpasses the French Open, which had just over £35m in prize money in 2022, but falls short of the Australian Open, which was just over £42.5m

The US Open, to be played in August, had a prize fund of just over £47m.

How much does the Wimbledon winner in men’s singles earn?

Winners of the men’s singles competition will earn £2m ($2.5m) this year, a significant increase on the £1.7m Novak Djokovic raised for the win last year.

The runner-up will also take home a seven-figure sum for reaching the finals, while there’s plenty of money to be made in the earlier rounds:

How much does the Wimbledon champion in women’s singles earn?

The Wimbledon champion earns the same amount as her male counterpart, with the prize money in women’s singles being the same as in the men’s tournament.
