US Open Prize Money 2019

The US Open has the richest prize purse of all the Grand Slams and in 2019 it's got even bigger, the USTA has announced that total player prize money for 2019 US Open is now over $57 million ($57,238,700) for the first time in history.

The winners of the men’s and women’s singles tournaments will each receive a record $3.85 million prize, and runners up will quickly get over the loss by pocketing $1.9 million each.

First-round losers will also benefit thanks to the focus on fairer prize money distribution with $58,000 landing in their accounts after an early exit. Main draw prize money for the first round losers has increased by 47% over the last four years, the second-round prize money has increased by 46%.

The US Open prides itself on offering the best tennis players in the world the richest total prize money in our sport. We strive to be innovative and feel that our new contribution of $500,000 to both the ATP’s pension plan and the WTA Tour’s transition programs for players will go a long way toward the long-term financial well-being of all of our sport’s athletes. Patrick Galbraith, USTA Chairman

The 2019 total purse was more than a 13 per cent increase on the $50.5 million offered in 2018. Prize money at the US Open has increased by 67 per cent since 2013 and the US Open was the first tournament to offer equal prize money to men and women back in 1973. You can see a full historical breakdown below and how much it has increased year on year.
