US Open 2019 - Prize Money: How much can Federer, Nadal, Djokovic earn?
Once again a record prize money at the US Open. $57 million will be at stake for the upcoming edition that will take place from 26 August to 8 September 2019.
The men's and women's singles winner will respectively get a cheque for $3,850,000.
The biggest improvements have been made in the early rounds. Competing in the main draw will guarantee a $58,000 cheque, while second-round losers will get $100,000.
US Open will also donate $1 million combined to ATP and WTA to support them through their programmes.
Novak Djokovic and Naomi Osaka are the defending champions.
In last year's championship clash the Japanese prevailed 6-2 6-4 in a very controversial final over the American Serena Williams, who argued with the umpire.
We will see how this time the 23-time Major winner will behave.
She was able to reach three Grand Slam finals in the last five played. Below is the men's singles prize money:
Winner: $3,850,000 Runner-Up: $1,900,000 Semifinalist: $960,000 Quarterfinalist: $500,000 Round of 16: $280,000 Round of 32: $163,000 Round of 64: $100,000 Round of 128: $58,000
Meanwhile, Federer spoke about what really encourages him to keep going: "I do not think it's enough just to love and do it and go out and win it.
It's not that simple. You need to have structured goals. You need to tell yourself, Okay, what are my goals for the short term and long term.
Now that I have accomplished almost everything and I am supposed to go out on the court singing, Let's just play free.
But this is not how you are gonna win matches because it comes down to margins and you have to be so clear in your mind, what you want to do and what you want to achieve.
And for me, it does not work without any goals, without any targets. I cannot compete probably."
