Upper Austria Ladies Linz Prize Money 2020

The Upper Austria Ladies Linz takes place on the indoor hardcourts of the TipsArena Linz. First held in 1987 in Wels, Austria it moved to Linz in 1991. Since the 2009 edition, it is one of the stops on the WTA International Circuit.

Usually held in October, this year the tournament has been moved to November after the calendar was severely disrupted by the global pandemic.

Naturally, the prize money has taken a hit due to the event being held behind closed doors and the total prize money on offer at the 2020 Upper Austria Ladies Linz is €163,105 which is down 10.81% from last year.

The champion in Linz will take home a cheque for €20,161, which is -41.86% down vs 2019. The runner up also sees a similar 34.58% pay cut with €11,290 in prize money.

Like the ATP, the WTA has also mandated a reapportioning of prize money to the earlier rounds, seen as though the lower-ranked players were hit hardest financially by the suspension of the tour.

For 2020, first-round losers in qualifying can look forward to an 83.26% bump in pay compared with last year, each receiving €887. Similarly, main draw first-round losers also receive a 9.5% increase, with €1,855 of prize money.
