Wimbledon Prize Money: What Did Kyrgios & Djokovic Earn In 2022?

Wimbledon Prize Money 2022: What Did Kyrgios & Djokovic Earn?

As a much-needed incentive for players to compete at Wimbledon 2022 given zero ranking points were being awarded this time around, the All England Lawn Tennis Club announced a historic total prize money fund: £40,350,000 / $70,921,335 with equal pay between men and women.

As the singles champions of their respective genders, Novak Djokovic and Elena Rybakina have each won £2,000,000 / $3,516,020 along with the prestigious grand slam title and accompanying grand slam trophy. This marks the Serbian great’s seventh at London’s famed centre court and his 21st in total to date. The Russian-born talent, on the other hand, claimed an inaugural major title for both herself and her adopted country of Kazakhstan.

While their worthy opponents in Australia’s own fiery maverick Nick Kyrgios – who progressed via walkover after an injured Rafael Nadal withdrew – and Tunisian tour de force Ons Jabeur fell short during the most recent Wimbledon final, they probably aren’t feeling too sore about it. Aside from some shiny new silver plates, the 2022 runner-ups also took home £1,050,000 / $1,845,910.

So why was the All England Lawn Tennis Club so willing to potentially lose the sport’s biggest names by implementing ranking points restrictions when this year’s event promised full-capacity crowds for the first time since before COVID-19?

Like several aspects of modern life right about now, it has to do with President Vladimir Putin’s illegal invasion of Ukraine. In response to the international hostility, Wimbledon slapped ineligibility statuses upon 16 Russian and Belarusian players, including reigning king of the ranks Daniil Medvedev (who would’ve certainly been a major draw if not the main draw).

“Yeah, I think it was tough,” said Cameron Norrie, the top-ranked British men’s player at No. 12.

“It was a tough one, you know. Morally, the England Club did the right thing. I like that they were pretty onto it with that.”

“But I do feel for a couple of players, especially [No. 1 Daniil Medvedev] and [No. 8 Andrey Rublev], who have a good chance to win the tournament. So I really feel for those guys who are so committed to tennis and so professional.”

Funds generated by The Championships – less tax – are used by the LTA to develop tennis in Great Britain,” explains the Wimbledon site.

In December 2008, the Club and the LTA agreed that the LTA would benefit from receiving 90% of any distributable financial surplus resulting from The Championships until at least 2053.

AELTC would acquire the LTA’s 50% share of ownership in All England Lawn Tennis Ground plc (the company which owns the Wimbledon tennis site and facilities). Capital therefore became freed up in 2013 for the LTA to invest in British tennis and its facilities at all levels.

For the Club, who originally gave this 50% shareholding to the LTA in 1934, the transaction returns to the Club full ownership and control of the site, enabling it to continue its central objective to maintain The Championships as the premier tennis event in the world, with facilities to match.
