Established in 1927, the Argentina Open is a long-standing tournament that takes place annually in Buenos Aires at the Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis Club, a clay court venue known as the Cathedral of Argentinean tennis.

Historically, locals have enjoyed plenty of success, with past champions including David Nalbandian, Juan Monaco, Gaston Gaudio, and Guillermo Coria. However, in 2021 Diego Schwartzman broke a 12-year drought for Argentina, defeating countryman Francisco Cerúndolo in the finals.

For 2023, the total prize money at the Argentina Open reaches its highest point on record at $626,595, equating to €583,742 and £514,528, representing a 4% jump compared to last year.

In singles, the champion will take home $95,305, while the runner-up will pocket 60% of that amount or $55,595. In both cases, earnings for these prize figures grew 4% year over year.

On the doubles side, the winning team will split a check for $33,110, while the pair who loses in the finals will share $17,720. Like singles, these amounts have grown by 4% compared to 2022.

In the following sections, I’ve provided a detailed overview and complete breakdown of the Argentina Open’s prize money and historical data for reference and quick comparison. For reference, I’ve included currency conversions from euros to US dollars and sterling pounds.

2023 Full Breakdown

At a high level, we can break prize money down by event, with singles capturing roughly 80% of the purse and the remaining 20% allocated to the doubles tournament, which has a smaller draw.

However, we can drill deeper and break things down by round, where the further a player progresses, the more they earn. For example, a player who exits the tournament in the first round will earn $6,720, while a player who loses in the quarterfinals will take home $18,940.

The following tables break down prize money by round, along with historical data for reference. I’ve also converted prize money to euros and sterling pounds, which I calculate using the prior year’s exchange rate on the day of the final for a close approximation of value.

Prize Money by Year

Total prize money changes yearly at the Argentina Open, which the tournament’s success heavily influences.

More specifically, ticket sales, sponsorships, merchandise, and concessions play a significant role in the tournament’s revenue, so prize money can suffer when numbers fall short. For example, prize money dropped 17% in 2021 due to the pandemic.
