More than $100 million prize money on offer across the Australian Summer of Tennis
A record $76.5 million prize money is on offer for competitors at Australian Open 2023.
The world’s best tennis players will be competing for more than AUD $100 million prize money this summer.
The historic-high prize pool is a result of a record $76.5m for the Australian Open (a 3.4 per cent increase), as well as the addition of the lucrative new United Cup event.
“It is critical to the continued success of the Australian tennis summer that we provide strong and relevant playing opportunities and ensure that the best players in the world are compensated appropriately,” Australian Open Tournament Director Craig Tiley said.
“We want to ensure Australia is the launchpad for the global season and that we see as much of them as possible. They inspire us all to engage in this great sport, as well as inspiring future generations.
“We are delighted to have more than $100 million in prize money on offer across the Australian summer, along with more chances to compete across the country. We’ve worked tirelessly alongside the ATP and WTA to launch the exciting new United Cup, which includes its own significant ranking points and prize money, a further two WTA and ATP events in Adelaide, the Hobart International and an upgraded ATP 100 Challenger in Canberra.
“At the Australian Open, we’ve upped prize money for every round from qualifying through to the finals, with the major increases in the early rounds, where these substantial rewards help players invest in their own careers and in many cases, set themselves up for success throughout the year.”
Creating new benefits, services, spaces and experiences for the players is also a priority at the Australian Open, ensuring there are lots of happy moments at the ‘Happy Slam’.
