Wimbledon Prize Money 2015: How Much Will The Winners Make?

Wimbledon is one of the four annual Grand Slam tennis tournaments, the others are the Australian Open, the French Open and the US Open. Since the Australian Open was moved to hardcourt in 1988, Wimbledon remains the only Grand Slam tournaments still played on grass.

Each tournament is played over a period of two weeks – the Australian Open is usually in mid-January, the French Open in May and June, Wimbledon in July, and the US Open in August and September.

Among the many things people look forward to during the competition aside from the players, public and media attention is the prize money.

And 2015 can be considered as the best year for tennis, as Wimbledon has already started and top-seeded players will be looking to don their whites and whip rackets on the grass court.

Novak Djokovic and Petra Kvitovasurely will both be looking forward to continuing their winning run of last year while Andy Murray will take all of his chances to keep the British hopes alive.

This summer’s tennis tournament has seen an unprecedented financial increase in the prize money with a rise of seven percent in total, making £26.75 million overall in reward.

Despite rumors of the grand slam to see a 10% rise in the total prize, an increase in seven percent is still high making it the highest paying grand slam ahead of French Open and US Open.

A 7.6% increase in the prize money has already been announced which should mean that the champion in either of the category will bag £1.88 million each. The £26.75 million or 42.2 million USD has also made this tennis tournament the most lucrative event of the year where players in every round will not leave home empty-handed.

Even a first-round loss will help the player gain £29,000 for making it into the grand slam, and that’s a pretty good increase in the Wimbledon prize money for 2015.

Bids rank Serena Williams, the current world number 1 together with Novak Djokovic as the favorites for the tournament. Williams looks forward to making it a third Grand Slam win of the year after coming from consecutive victories at the Australian Open and Roland Garros. And, Roger Federer is surely going to show his class back before retiring.

Williams is likely to be much serious this term and turns all the odds out from the past years where she could not make further than the fourth round in past two years. A win this term will also tally her Wimbledon title to five.

However, chances are Kvitova will revive her last year’s glory to make it two in a row. But, she underwent some injury recovery before the championships, that should mean she’ll be depending more on her gameplay rather than power.

There is still some potential in the previous winner Maria Sharapova, but she also needs to make a lot of improvements to perform better than her last three appearances where she dearly missed the fifth round.

In the men’s category, Novak Djokovic looks at his prime, but his recent loss to Stan Wawrinka in the French Open shows he’s still some weaknesses in the game.

David Ferrer has been dropped out of the tournament because of an injury and he surely is going to be a notable absentee.

Another star in the making, Andy Murray is sure to take some home advantage with the crowd cheering his name and his triumph at Queen’s can take a positive route again in the grass.

Whatever it be with the decent prize money gig this term for all the participants, the prestige awaits the one who’s going to win the title and grab a whopping £1.9 million.

The winner who will take the biggest Wimbledon Prize money in 2015 is yet to emerge, but top-quality fight on the grass is sure to cast some drama in this greatest tennis event in history.
