Japan Open Prize Money
2022 Breakdown & Historicals
Held at the Ariake Colosseum in Tokyo, the Japan Open is Asia’s longest-running ATP tournament, which first started in 1972.
Kei Nishikori is the only Japanese player to have won the tournament, which he did in 2012 and 2014. He also reached the finals in 2018 but fell to eventual champion Daniil Medvedev.
Despite its long-running success, organizers canceled the ATP 500 event in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic, so this is the tournament’s first edition since October 2019.
For 2022, the total prize money reaches a record high at $1,953,285, which translates to €1,990,133 and £1,726,264, representing a 3% increase over the last time the tournament ran.
This year the singles champion will claim a check for $365,275, while the runner-up will earn $182,825 for his efforts. Both are 7% drops compared to 2019 as the increase in prize money found its way to earlier rounds, especially the qualifiers.
Meanwhile, the Japan Open’s winning doubles team will split $119,980, and the runner-up will share $63,990, a 3% drop for the champs and a 6% increase for their opponents.
