If the covid-19 had somewhat reduced the prize money for a few months, the tendency seems to be definitely reversed. The ATP Finals are a proof of this, because it is the biggest prize money in history that is planned for the occasion. The winner, if he wins all his matches, will leave with almost 5 million euros (4.813 M€). He would thus surpass, Ashley Barty who had pocketed 3.9 million euros in Shenzhen in 2019 just before the health crisis became global. In total it is 14,750,000 dollars that will be distributed, or a little over 15 million euros.
While Reilly Opelka regularly castigates the organizers of some tournaments of the circuit by explaining that the level of prize money is decreasing since the famous period of Covid, the American giant is likely to choke when he will discover the amount of the check that can receive the winner of the Masters of Turin.
Indeed, the champion who lifts the Cup can leave Piedmont with a check for €4,813,064, provided he or she remains undefeated.
For now, the biggest win in history was won by Ashleigh Barty at the Masters in 2019, the Australian had left Shenzhen with $3.9 million.
