Wimbledon champions to earn $1.54 million each!

Posted by Lana On 4/21/2010 08:14:00 AM


This year's Wimbledon winners of the men’s and women’s singles titles will each earn a record $1.54 million!

The All England Club, who equalized prize money for men and women in 2007, announced on Tuesday that both the men's and women's champions will take home the biggest purse in the tournament's history, a 17.6% increase of £150,000 on 2009.

The total prize money for the event will be £13.725million, which means that the prize money has doubled over the past 10 years.

Tim Phillips, chairman of the All England Club, said: "Wimbledon exists in a highly-competitive global marketplace, and it's the world's best players who create and drive the interest. "It's important that we offer a level of prize money which is both appropriate to the prestige of the event and which gives the players full and fair reward."


Phillips also announced that this year's tournament, which runs from June 21 to July 4, will be a "World Cup-free zone", with football fans denied the chance to watch matches on the big screens at the All England Club.

Phillips added: "This is arguably the leading tennis tournament in the world and people come here to watch tennis. "If people want to watch the World Cup they should go to South Africa or watch it on the TV."
