Held annually since 1969 in Rock Creek Park, the Washington Open, otherwise known as the Citi Open, is one of 13 ATP 500 tournaments held annually across the globe.

The hard court tournament is one of seven US Open series events culminating in August at the US Open in Flushing Meadows, NY. Held alongside the ATP tournament, there’s also a WTA 250 event for fans to enjoy.

For 2022, the Citi Open’s total prize money is $1,953,285, which translates to €1,904,247 and £1,593,782, a nominal 3% increase over the prior year’s event.

The singles champion will earn $342,800 for his efforts, while the runner-up will take home $182,825, representing a 2% decline for the champ and a 2% increase for his opponent.

In doubles, the winning pair will walk away with $119,980, and the runner-up will split $63,990, a 1% and 6% increase, respectively.

The total prize money for the women’s tournament is $251,750, which is nearly stagnant, up only .7% over 2021. The ladies champion will earn $33,200, while the runner-up will claim $19,750, which despite a slight increase in overall prize money, represents a 23% and 8% decline.

You can find a complete breakdown of the Citi Open’s prize money in the following tables with historical data for reference and comparison.

2022 Full Breakdown

At a high level, the tournament distributes 80% of the prize money to singles and 20% to doubles. Both disciplines see increases in prize money as a player advances.

Despite a small bump in prize money compared to 2021, the singles champion sees a 2% decline in earnings, while all other rounds see increases. For example, players who reach rounds 2 and 3 will see 7% more prize money than last year.

The following tables break down prize money by round since 2007. To view historical data, scroll left to right.

For comparison, I’ve converted US dollars 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

Every year, tournament officials set their prize money, which may increase or decrease due to various factors, including the success of the prior year’s event.

Nearly all tournaments see the vast majority of their revenue through ticket sales, sponsorships, merchandise, and concessions, so if they have a down year, it can impact prize money. Unlike most others, the Citi Open in Washington held its 2021 prize money equal to 2019, despite canceling in 2020 due to the pandemic and lower attendance in 2021.

For historical context, the following table outlines the total yearly prize money at the event, starting in 2000. Since then, the prize money has more than doubled.
