Wimbledon serves up big increase in prize money
Wimbledon officials have agreed to a substantial increase in prize money for this summer’s champion- ships following talks with Andy Murray and the world’s leading players.
All England Club chairman Philip Brook met with Murray, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer at Indian Wells in March to discuss the increasingly thorny issue.
As a result, the total fund for 2012 will increase by 10% to £16.1million with the men’s and women’s champions receiving an extra £50,000 each, taking their prize money to £1.15million.
