Wimbledon increases prize money...

Post by laverfan on Tue Apr 29, 2014 6:20 pm

The champion will receive a cheque for £1.76m, a 10 per cent (£160,000) increase from £1.6m in 2013.

Doubles prize money for The Championships, which runs from 23 June to 6 July, increases by 8.7 per cent, while there is a 6.1 per cent increase for the mixed doubles.


http://www.atpworldtour.com/News/Tennis/2014/04/18/Wimbledon-Prize-Money-Increase.aspx

At the heart of the increase is a wish by the Club to continue to build on the work of the last two years targeting the increases to the side of the draw which it was felt needed it most – those players who lose in the early rounds or in qualifying.  

For the vast majority (88%) of singles players who lose in the first three rounds of The Championships, there is an increase of over 12.5% in the prize money each will receive this year, thereby increasing the prize money for these players by over 100% over a three-year period.

Similarly, there is a 12.5% increase in prize money for qualifying bringing the three-year increase for this group to 93%.

All sounds good on paper.
I would like to hear from players, esp those ranked 100-200.
Very good from Federer to have fought for this on behalf of them.

Wouldn't he make a dream ATP boss!!!
