Competitors in the single titles category have the potential to earn the most. Winners of this year’s Wimbledon singles titles (men’s and women’s) will each pocket a record £2.25 million in prize money, while runners up in the singles title will also take home £1.125 million each.
For each stage you earn a significant chunk more. If you get through from the second round to the fourth round you’ll take home an extra £100,000, with a jump from £63,000 to £163,000. At the third round there’s a cool £100,000 on offer. Quarter-finalists win£281,000, and semi-finalists pocket £562,000.
Winners in the doubles titles will each receive a cheque for £450,000, while the runners up will also win £225,000.
Even qualifying for a singles title at Wimbledon is lucrative, as competitors who reach the first round of the singles titles know that they’re entitled to at least £39,000 each – even if they fall at the first hurdle. There’s no prize for the first round of the doubles titles, but there’s £11,500 each on offer at the second round.
