The French Open will pay prize money of more than 25m euros this year, with the two singles champions each receiving 1.65m euros. That means the singles champions will get 150,000 euros more than last year's champions, who were Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams. The overall increase is of three million euros, the biggest bumps being given to prizes for those losing in the early rounds.
Wimbledon is set to announce changes to its prize fund later this month. Last year's total prize pot at Wimbledon was £22.56m, with winners Andy Murray and Marion Bartoli each receiving £1.6m. Players at this year's French Open who are defeated in the second and third rounds will pick up 20% more money than last year (42,000 and 72,000 euros respectively).
Fourth-round losers will be taking home 125,000 euros, 25% more than last year. The French Open, the second Grand Slam of the year after the Australian Open, starts at Roland Garros in Paris on 25 May. Rafael Nadal is the favourite to win the men's tournament, he is 4/6 at Bet365 to clinch the trophy, while Serena Williams is 5/4 to defend her title.
