So, this is how the prize pool is going to be distributed at Wimbledon this year. The fund has seen a great rise and is now at level with the prize fund for the 2019 season. The total amount went down for three years in between due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the All England Lawn Tennis Club has ensured there are no further restrictions on the prize fund.

The level of the prize fund as well as the tennis at Wimbledon is only going to increase from here on. Let us hope we have a cracker of two weeks of nail-biting tennis.
