Adelaide International Prize Money 2021

First held in 2020, the Adelaide International which is a combined ATP and WTA tournament is held in the run-up to the Australian Open.

Under normal circumstances, the event takes place at the brand new Memorial Drive Tennis Centre which has a canopy roof structure to guarantee tennis whatever the weather and to protect players from the blistering heat should it be required.

For 2021 with the pandemic causing travel chaos, the ATP event has been moved to Melbourne. It will be held alongside another 250 tournament called Melbourne 2 and the ATP Cup. Adelaide has been temporarily renamed Melbourne 1. The WTA event will be held the week after the Australian Open, in Adelaide.

For the men's tour, the total prize money on offer at this ATP 250 event is $311,665, and as well as some ideal preparation ahead of the Australian Open, the winner will receive $19,500.

In line with the rest of the tour, losers in qualifying don't go home empty-handed, final round losers will bag $1,925 while first-round main draw losers receive $2,500.

On the women's side, this is a WTA 500 event and the total prize money on offer is $565,530 with the winner taking home $68,570.
