Wimbledon 2021 Prize Money: How Much Will Novak Djokovic And Other Tennis Winners Win?

The All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club has announced that it will reduce the Wimbledon prize money for the winners of the men’s and women’s singles titles for the 2021 season. The purse payouts for Wimbledon 2021 have been reduced by five percent to £ 35 million, to be divided equally between the men’s and women’s singles and doubles players.

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic will face Matteo Berrettini in the Wimbledon final to win the title and prize money. Ash Barty became the first Australian since Lleyton Hewitt to win the title and pocket a cash prize of £ 1.7 million.

The winner of the Wimbledon singles championships will earn £ 1.7 million, down 28% from £ 2.35 million in 2019.

The drop in Wimbledon prize money also shows how the pandemic has impacted the global sporting event. This also reflects that the lowest ranked players earn just a penny than the top players in the grass event.
