In 2021, the San Diego Open debuted as one of the ATP tour’s newest events hosted at the Barnes Tennis Center.

Last year, the tournament hosted eight of the world’s top 20 players, including Casper Ruud, Andrey Rublev, and Denis Shapovalov, along with many other familiar faces.

For 2022, prize money at the San Diego Open increases by 2% to $612,200 compared to 2021, which is excellent for a newer tournament in its second year running.

The men’s singles champion will pocket $93,000 for his effort, while the runner-up will receive a check for $54,300, equating to a 0.5% increase and -0.1% decrease, respectively.

Percentage-wise, the most significant increases in prize money at the San Diego Open are in the earlier rounds, with a 13.7% and 8.4% jump for the first and second qualifying competitions. In comparison, the main draw’s first round bumps up 6%.

In doubles, the winning pair will split $32,340, while the runner-ups will share $17,300, representing 1.5% and 0.8% increases.

The remainder of this guide provides a detailed overview and complete breakdown of the San Diego Open’s prize money and historical data for reference and quick comparison.

2022 Full Breakdown

With a 28-player draw, the tournament’s focal point is singles, so organizers distribute roughly 80% of the prize money to this discipline. The 16-team doubles event receives the remaining 20%, a typical split across ATP tournaments.

However, we can break prize money down further by round to get a sense of what players earn at various stages of the tournament, which increases the further a player progresses. The following table summarizes this data for the past two years.

I’ve also converted prize money to euros and Sterling Pound, which I calculate using the prior year’s exchange rate on the day of the final for a close approximation of value.
