Wimbledon announced total prize money of £35 million ($48.7 million) for 2021. The prize money reflects a 5.2% reduction from 2019. Wimbledon was canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19.
Men’s and women’s singles winners will take home $2.3 million and doubles winners will earn $667,200.
Tennis tournaments have reduced prize money to combat loss in revenue due to COVID-19. Many countries have either banned or limited spectators at sports events. Sponsors have also pulled back due to poor business conditions.
