Wimbledon prize money set to increase

Published: Monday 11th of May 2009

The winner of Wimbledon this year will receive a 13.3 per cent rise in their winnings, it has been revealed.

It is believed that the increase reflects the bankers behind the game, who often operate in dollars.

"We recognise the fact that many of the players who compete deal in US dollars or Euros," commented club boss Tim Phillips.

He added that the exchange rate this year had "come very much" into their thinking, leading them to make the decision to change the winnings.

Both the winners of the men's and women's tournaments will walk away with £850,000.

With the London Pass, visitors to the city can embark on the Wimbledon Tour Experience for themselves, getting behind the scenes of the world-famous competition.
