United Cup Prize Money
2023 Breakdown & Historicals
New for 2023, the United Cup is a mix-gender team competition featuring 18 teams and some of the world’s top players with substantial prize money and actual ranking points on the line.
The tournament, which takes place across three cities in Australia, brings together players from the ATP and WTA to replace the all-male ATP Cup, which ran for three years starting in 2021.
For 2023, prize money at the United Cup is an impressive $15,000,000, with $7,500,000 set aside for ATP and WTA players. However, earnings for individual players break down into three categories:
- Participation fee
- Per team wins
- Individual wins
As far as prize money goes in professional tennis, this is one of the more unique distribution methods that seek to incentivize the participation of top players while awarding team and individual performance.
For context, the maximum a single player who goes undefeated the entire tournament could earn in prize money is $883,385. On the other hand, $5,000 is the minimum a player could take home purely for participation without any team or individual wins, so the gap is significant.
The following sections provide a detailed overview and complete breakdown of the United Cup’s prize money and historical data for reference and quick comparison.
