As the temperatures rise, so does the action at the second tennis grand slam of the year. Roland Garros goes into week two with some of the biggest names still targeting the La Coupe des Mousquetaires (men) or the Suzanne Lenglen Cup (women).
In addition to winning two of the sport’s greatest trophies, the winner will also receive prize money. After a reduction in the prize money for the 2020 edition (when the tournament was held in the fall due to the pandemic), the 2021 wallet for Paris was also reduced by 10.53 percent.
What is the French Open wallet for 2021?
In 2020 the purse was $ 45.69 million and in 2021 it is fixed at $ 41.95 million. It’s a drop of $ 6,977,070 from last year’s wallet.
How much money does the winner get?
The masters in men’s and women’s singles will earn roughly $ 1.69 million everyone. Last year, Iga Swiatek became Poland’s first individual Grand Slam champion. In the men’s category, Rafael Nadal added his 13th win at Roland Garros and the 20th Grand Slam title of his career to his trophy case. The couple won $ 1.9 million each
The men’s and women’s doubles champions win $ 289,235 while the mixed doubles champions win $ 148,523
