All England Club Increases Wimbledon Prize Money 25% To $30M

The prize pot at this summer’s Wimbledon championship is set to leap by 25% to a record US$30M after the All England Club "bowed to demands from players that they needed a greater share of the tournament’s spoils." The Club "will detail the hikes in pay on Tuesday," but reports indicate singles champions will earn $2.28M each, up 30% from last year. The increases "will bring Wimbledon in line with the other Grand Slam events upping their prize funds in recent times" (DAILY MAIL, 4/20).
