Wimbledon 2018 prize money revealed: How much will stars pocket at SW19?

The Wimbledon prize pot has been given an extra £2.4million to share among the creme de la creme of tennis.

Despite the £34m available to the tennis stars, the eye-watering amount pales in comparison to other Grand Slams – with the French Open handing out £34.33m and last year’s US Open giving £37.56m to the athletes.

A new rule for this year is to cut out players pulling out at the last minute, or early in the first round, just to pocket cash.

Anyone who makes a late withdrawal through injury ahead of the first round will only get half of the money, with the other 50 per cent going to their replacement.

Here is Wimbledon 2018’s mind-boggling prize money….
