US Open Prize Money
2022 Breakdown & Historicals
The 2022 US Open in Flushing Meadows, New York, is scheduled to take place from Monday, August 29 to Sunday, September 11, and this year prize money hits a record high of $60,000,000, which translates to €60,419,700 and £50,988,000, a 4% increase over 2021.
As one of the world’s most prestigious Grand Slam tournaments, the US Open continues to deliver the most prize money of any single event on the ATP and WTA tours, and this year they don’t disappoint.
Men and women earn equal prize money at the US Open, so singles champions will take home a massive $2,600,000 paycheck, while the runner-ups will walk away with an equally impressive $1,300,000. Both of these sums represent a 4% increase over the prior year.
For the doubles event, the winning pairs will earn $688,000, and the teams in the runner-up position will split $344,000 for a 4% jump for both over last year’s event, just like in singles.
In 2021, the USTA adjusted its allocation of prize money to better support lower-ranked players participating in qualifiers and earlier rounds in the main draw. For 2022, this effort continues with the tournament distributing an impressive $6,250,000 in the qualifying tournament alone and final round qualifiers earning $44,000.
With attendance at tournaments worldwide increasing and full capacity expected for the 2022 US Open, expectations for prize money were high, and the last Grand Slam of the year delivered the goods. This guide shares everything you need to know about the 2022 purse, including historical data for comparison and reference.
