The second of seven US Open Series tournaments, the Atlanta Open is an ATP 250 tennis tournament held annually at the end of July. For 2022, the tournament’s prize money is $708,9530, which translates to €699,570 and £588,108, a 27% bump over 2021.

Formerly the BB&T Atlanta Open, the tournament dates back to 1921, having first lived in Indianapolis before moving to Atlanta. However, under current ownership, the event has run since 2010.

American tennis player John Isner has been particularly successful at the event. Since 2010, he’s made his way to nine finals and won six, including last year, so we’ll see if he can claim it again.

This year marks the tournament’s highest prize money, with the winner taking home $107,770 and the runner-up landing a $62,865 check, a 97% and 61% increase over 2021.

In doubles, players don’t see as much prize money, but the winning pair will claim $37,440, while the runner-up will earn $20,040. That’s an 84% and 37% increase compared to last year.

2022 Full Breakdown

The Atlanta Open distributes 80% of its prize money, while the remaining 20% goes to doubles.

As you’d expect, players earn more money the further they progress through the tournament, so I’ve summarized how prize money breaks down by round for singles in doubles. As you review the data, keep in mind that the historical conversions to the euro and Sterling Pound consider the exchange rate on the day of the previous year’s final.

Prize Money by Year

Tournament organizers set prize money at the Atlanta Open yearly, which is heavily influenced by the prior year’s revenue, including proceeds from ticket sales, sponsorships, merchandise, and concessions.

Since the tournament first ran in 2010, the prize money has only dropped twice for the event, in 2012 and again in 2021, on the heels of the pandemic, which saw limited crowd capacity and ticket sales.

Despite that, 2022’s prize money is back on track, with the $708,530 purse the highest ever for the tournament. The following table outlines the yearly prize money offered at the Atlanta Open since 2010, which has seen eight years of increases.
