The Winston-Salem Open is an ATP 250 tennis tournament in North Carolina and one of seven US Open series events leading up to the year’s last major in Flushing Meadows, NY, the US Open.

The tournament, which takes place at the Wake Forest Tennis Complex in Winston-Salem, hosts 48 players in singles and 16 teams in doubles. For 2022, organizers are offering prize money of $731,935, a 2% bump over 2021, which is the equivalent of €736,410 and £622,346.

This year, the singles champion will take home $100,475, while the runner-up will pocket a cool $57,660, equating to 4% and 3% increases over what players received last year.

In doubles, the winning team will earn $39,530, and the runner-up pair will split a smaller paycheck of $20,700 for their efforts.

The most significant percentage increase for players comes in the qualifying rounds, where the first-round qualifiers earn 25% more and the second round increases 13% to $2,070 and $1,145, respectively.

Unfortunately, for the main events first and second round, players see drops in prize money of just over 1%. Although these changes are nominal, every dollar counts for players in the early stages of a tournament.

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

2022 Full Breakdown

Singles is the bread and butter of the Winston-Salem Open, so organizers distribute 80% of the prize money to the event. In comparison, tournament officials allocate the remaining 20% to doubles.

However, beyond the singles and doubles events, prize money also breaks down by round, increasing the further a player progresses. The following tables summarize this data by year, and you can scroll left to right to view historical numbers.

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.
