The 136th edition of the Wimbledon Championships, scheduled to take place from Monday, July 3 to Sunday, July 16, 2023, has revealed the prize money and points distribution, surpassing the previous year’s figures.
With the confirmation of the Entry Lists, the anticipation for Wimbledon continues to build, and the Prize Money has now been officially announced.
In 2022, the winners of both the men’s and women’s tournaments received a remarkable £2 million each. The finalists earned £1,050,000, while semi-finalists took home £535,000. The prize money decreased progressively, with first-round losers receiving £50,000.
the All-England Club has displayed remarkable benevolence. They have declared a total prize fund of £44.7 million for the 2023 Wimbledon Championships, which sets a new benchmark. This amount represents an 11.2% increase from last year’s allocation and is 17.1% higher than the prize pool in 2019, before the Covid pandemic.
Much like the Roland Garros, the second major tournament of the season, Wimbledon has substantially augmented its total prize purse for this year’s event. More than £40 million will be disbursed among participants competing in the ATP & WTA singles, doubles, mixed doubles, and wheelchair competitions.
Moreover, the removal of the ban on Russian and Belarusian players has resulted in the reinstatement of a points breakdown. Previously, these players had their ATP and WTA points stripped. As a consequence, Elena Rybakina, as the champion, now finds herself in the top three based solely on her current form, a year after her victory.
The focal point of attention lies on the Ladies and Gentlemen’s Singles Championships, where the victors secure a remarkable £2,350,000 each, accompanied by 2000 points for the champion. The runners-up will also receive a substantial sum of £1,175,000, accompanied by 1300 WTA ranking points or 1200 ATP ranking points.
Out of the total prize money pool of £44.7 million, the singles competitions will account for over £36 million. Competitors who depart in the second round will receive £85,000 in addition to 45 ATP ranking points and 70 WTA ranking points.
In terms of points allocation, the winner of the tournament will receive 2,000 points. There is a slight variation for the WTA, with the finalist earning 1,300 points, while the ATP finalist receives 780 points. Similarly, the point distribution for the semi-finalists and quarter-finalists differs between the WTA and ATP, with 720 and 360 points respectively for the WTA, and 430 and 360 points respectively for the ATP.
Competitors who depart in the second stage will receive a substantial prize of £85,000, accompanied by 45 ATP ranking points and 70 WTA ranking points. Those who make it to the third round will receive £131,000 and 90 ATP ranking points for men, or 130 WTA ranking points for women.
Although the prize money remains the same for players in both singles competitions, the points awarded differ due to the regulations of each tour. This remains valid for players who advance to the second week of the competition as well.
Exiting in the fourth round will grant players a notable sum of £207,000, along with 180 ATP ranking points or 240 WTA ranking points.
The quarterfinalists at the 2023 Wimbledon Championships will be generously rewarded, receiving £340,000 and 360 ranking points for the ATP, or 430 ranking points for the WTA.
The semifinalists of the tournament will be awarded approximately £600,000, coupled with 720 ATP ranking points or 780 WTA ranking points.
Ian Hewitt, the Chairman of the All England Club, expressed his satisfaction in once again being able to distribute increased prize money to the players.
