Since the Djokovic-Nadal battle in 2019, the subsequent two tournaments in 2021 and 2022 were interrupted by Covid, while the prize money has been increased by 11% bringing it back to the pre-pandemic level.

According to Wimbledon director Ian Hewitt, the prize money was increased “to the levels in 2019 prior to the pandemic whilst, alongside, providing deserved support for players in the early rounds of the event.”

While Tennis is not the most rewarding sport, participating in the bigger tournaments and reaching the deeper stages could see athletes earn life-changing amounts. Chris Eubanks, who reached the quarterfinals was awarded a sum of £340,000.
