This was announced by the organizers of Roland Garros of the year a few days ago. /

The aim is to get a more equal distribution between the players. In this respect, the prize money for the losers in the first round was increased - as well as for the qualifying rounds and the wheelchair and quad competitions.

In the individual fields, an increase of 9.1 percent was achieved compared to 2022, for the losers in the first three rounds an increase of 11 to 13 percent.

Exactly how much prize money do Djokovic, Alcaraz and Co. earn at the French Open?

Specifically, the winners of the women's and men's competitions receive a winner's check for 2.3 million euros (previous year: 2.2 million euros), for the elimination in round 1 there is still 69,000 euros (in 2022: 62,000 euros). For reaching the 2nd round then 97,000 euros (2022: 86,000 euros), for round 3 a whopping 142,000 euros (2022: 125,800 euros).

Prize money 2023 (in euros) Prize money 2022 (in euros)
winner 2,300,000 2,200,000
final 1,150,000 1,100,000
