J & T Banka Ostrava Open Prize Money 2020

The 2020 J&T Banka Ostrava Open is a WTA Premier tournament held in Ostrava, Czech Republic, in mid-October 2020

The tournament takes place indoors on hard court and the Ostravar arena. It was primarily organised due to the cancellation of many WTA tournaments courtesy of the COVID 19 pandemic and replaces the outdoor clay event usually held in Prague during the summer.

Whether this tournament sticks around as a new addition to the calendar remains to be seen but for 2020 the total prize money on offer at the Ostrava Open is €516,500.

The winner in Ostrava will take home €50,000 with the runner up receiving an equally impressive €30,000. With good money on offer and points at stake, it's no surprise the tournament has attracted four top-20 players, including Victoria Azarenka.

Post resumption of the tour, both the ATP and WTA have mandated that more prize money is allocated to early-round losers who were hit hard financially by not being able to ply their trade across the globe.

Ostrava is no exception and first-round losers receive a cheque for €9,600 which is a substantial amount compared to what they would ordinarily expect.
