Cincinnati Open Prize Money 2019

The fourth tournament in the US Open Series of hard court events takes place in Cincinnati with the Western and Southern Open.

From a small scale tournament first held over 100 years ago at the Avondale Athletic Club, the Cincinnati Masters is now a grand-scale ATP Masters 1000 event and has the prize money on offer to match. For 2019 the total prize money pool is $6,056,280 which is a 6.82% increase on 2018.

In 2018, Noval Djokovic won the title in Cincinnati to become the first player to win all nine ATP Masters 1000 crowns and complete the Career Golden Masters. Should the Serb defend his title he will walk away with $1,114,225 in prize money, a 2.4% rise on 2018.

For those who follow the game closely, you'll know that there's been a lot of noise from some of the lower-ranked players about equal prize money distribution. In a bid to help out the lower-ranked players, and fight corruption the prize money for qualifiers has jumped up significantly. First-round qualifying losers will receive $2,370 which is up 78.1% from 2018. Final round losers in qualifying receive an even bigger boost in percentage terms with $4,650 in prize money which is an 81.4% increase on the previous year.

The total prize money breakdown for the Western and Southern Open 2019 can be found below along with the history from previous years dating back to 2006.
