Wimbledon prize money will total 38 million pounds ($49 million) for this year’s championships, a rise of 11.8 percent, the All England Club announced on Tuesday.

The men’s and women’s singles champions will receive 2.35 million pounds each — 100,000 more than in 2018.

Continuing a theme of recent years, organisers have again significantly raised the prize money for early-round losers.

Prize money for qualifying and rounds one to three in the singles will rise by 10 percent with 45,000 pounds now the compensation for a first-round singles exit.

Wimbledon’s total prize money for 2019 surpasses the 62.5 million Australian dollars ($44 million) at this year’s opening Grand Slam in Melbourne but is still lower than the $53 million prize pool at last year’s U.S. Open.

The French Open recently announced an 8 percent increase in prize money for next month’s event, taking it to 42.6 million euros ($48 million).

Wimbledon’s prize money has trebled in the last decade.
