British sensation Raducanu – who is just 18 – has earned approximately $300,000 in her career so far, but is set to triple that figure regardless of her result in the final on Saturday.

Should she go all the way and lift the trophy, Raducanu would be on course to make around six times her entire career earnings in one tournament, a marker of just how life-changing this will be for her on the financial front, as well as in terms of tennis stature.

There’s more money on offer than ever before this year, with the players set to share a whopping £41.5 million ($57.5 million) between them, surpassing the previous 2019 record.

Despite the overall increase, however, the eventual singles winners will be receving less than they did in 2020 – with the prize money redistributed in such a way that those exiting in the earlier rounds receive more than in previous years.

There had been a slight reduction in prize money last year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, but it looks like things are back on the way up again now.
