While the 2016 Roland Garros champions will receive an extra €200,000 compared with last year – representing an 11% increase, most of the prize fund has been committed to the rest of the field.

Players who lose before the quarter-finals who will see the most significant increases: singles players defeated in the second, third or fourth rounds will each collect 20% more than in 2015.

The total prize pot of €32,017,500 is a 14% increase compared to 2015, while the prize money total has increased by an astonishing 70% since 2012. Four years ago Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova both won €1,250,000 for winning the singles from a €18.7 million prize pot.

“This noticeable increase in prize money at Roland Garros is the final raise mentioned in the four-year plan drawn up for 2013 to 2016,” said Roland Garros tournament director Guy Forget.

“In total, the tournament’s prize money will have increased by an historic 70% during this four-year period, with a particular focus on those players who are eliminated in the first week, who have seen their earnings double.”
