ASB Classic, Auckland Prize Money
2023 Breakdown & Historicals
The ASB Classic is an annual ATP & WTA 250 tournament held right before the Australian Open in Auckland, New Zealand, and for many players, it’s a crucial warm-up before the year’s first Grand Slam.
The event opened its doors in 1956 and is the only professional men’s and women’s tennis tournament in the country, hosting a roster of 28 singles players and 16 doubles teams competing on hard courts.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic and New Zealand’s strict entry rules, organizers canceled the event in 2021 and 2022, so it’s exciting to see that the tournament is back operating this year.
Even better, for 2023, the ASB Classic is offering its largest purse ever for the ATP, with prize money totaling $642,735, which translates to €598,636 or £528,884 and represents a 21% increase over 2020.
The men’s singles champion will earn himself $97,760, while the runner-up will take home a check for $57,025, 7 and 13% increases, respectively.
On the women’s side, prize money for 2023 totals $259,303 or 241,504 and £213,363, which is nearly a 6% drop compared to 2020.
In singles, the WTA champ will take the biggest hit in prize money earning $34,228, while the runner-up claims $20,226, 20%, and 6% drops versus the last time the tournament ran in 2020.
