Australian Open Prize Money For 2021 Revealed

Australian Open Prize Money 2021 - Nick Kyrgios

Yet again, the Australian Open has announced a record-breaking sum of prize money will be up for grabs in 2021: $80 million. Representing an overall bump of almost 13% from last year’s $71 million total cash pool – which also sat at an all-time high last year – those competing in the singles event can expect a tidy pay bump from the first qualifier all the way until Round 4. The winner, runner-up, and anyone who makes it to the semi-finals, however, will experience a noticeable reduction in $$$.

Since 2011, Australian Open prize money has more than tripled from what was once $25 million. And given how the allocation has increased despite COVID-19 and the ongoing economic conditions associated with the global pandemic, we can only expect the dollars to keep on climbing in the foreseeable future.

Check out the prize money breakdown below.
