Ostrava Open Prize Money 2021

The 2021 J&T Banka Ostrava Open is a WTA 500 tournament held in Ostrava, Czech Republic.

The tournament takes place indoors on the hard courts of the Ostravar arena. It was primarily organised due to the cancellation of many WTA tournaments courtesy of the COVID 19 pandemic during 2020, but returns for 2021.

With good money on offer and points at stake, it's no surprise the tournament has attracted several top-20 players, including Petra Kvitova and the total prize money on offer at the Ostrava Open is $565,530 which is down -4.7% vs 2020.

However, despite an overall drop in the prize pool, the latter rounds see big increases in the prize money.

The winner in Ostrava will take home $68,570 which is an increase of 37.1% compared to 2020. The runner up gets a 70% pay rise vs twelve months ago with $51,000.

Instead, it is the earlier rounds who will receive a cut in pay this year, for example, first-round losers will bag themselves $6,650, down 30.7% vs 2020.
