Astana Open Prize Money

2022 Breakdown & Historicals

Held alongside the Japan Open in October, the Astana Open is one of the ATP tour’s newest events in Kazakhstan.

Initially, the ATP added the tournament as part of a provisional calendar in 2020 as the world grappled with the pandemic, which provided players an additional opportunity for competition.

However, after two successful editions, it’s now a permanent stop on the calendar, which the ATP promoted to a 500-level event in 2022, resulting in a substantial 300% increase in prize money over 2021.

This year, prize money stands at $1,900,000, which translates to €1,933,962 or £1,680,844, which no doubt increases the draw of the world’s top players, especially late in the year.

The Astana Open’s singles champion will fly home with a check for $355,310, while the runner-up will earn $191,180, equating to a 655% and 466% increases compared to the previous year.

In doubles, the winning team will split $116,710, while their opponents will pocket roughly half of that at $62,240. Compared to 2021, those work out to 564% and 394% increase. Interestingly, the prize money for the doubles champions is more than double what the singles champion took home last year, which was only $47,080.

The tables in the following sections outline a complete breakdown of prize money at the 2022 Astana Open, along with historical data for reference and comparison. You’ll also find currency conversions from US dollars to the euro and sterling pound for review.

2022 Full Breakdown

The Astana Open hosts a 32-player singles and 16-team doubles event, with 80% of the prize money supporting the former and 20% for the latter, which is on par with tournaments worldwide.

Prize money also breaks down by round, with players earning more money as they progress through the tournament. For example, the singles winner will earn 23 times more than a player who exits during the first round.

Prize Money by Year

Although the Astana Open is only in its third year of operation, organizers have managed to increase its prize money significantly each year. Since 2020, the purse has jumped a massive 595%.

The tournament primarily earns revenue through ticket sales, sponsorships, merchandise, and concessions, so if they see a down year in the future, it will likely impact prize money.

The following table outlines yearly prize money at the Astana Open since its inaugural event in 2020.
