Astana Open Prize Money
2023 Breakdown & Historicals
Held alongside the China 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.
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. However, with the return of tournaments in China, it’s transitioned back to the 250 series this year, resulting in a subsequent drop in prize money.
For 2023, prize money stands at $1,017,850, which translates to €961,160 or £833,558, a significant 46% drop from last year due to the tournament’s status change.
The Astana Open’s singles champion will fly home with a check for $154,815, while the runner-up will earn $90,310, equating to a 56% and 53% decrease compared to the previous year.
The winning team will split $53,780 in doubles, while their opponents will pocket roughly half of that at $28,780. Compared to last year, those work out to a 54% decrease for both teams.

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 14 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 272%.
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. Although prize money dropped in 2023, it’s not due to a lack of success. Instead, the tournament transitioned from an ATP 500 to an ATP 250, resulting in a smaller purse.
The following table outlines yearly prize money at the Astana Open since its inaugural event in 2020.
