USO Prize Money Increase

Post by rex » Aug Mon 23, 2021 5:37 pm

USO has increased the pot for prize money this year. A decrease for the finalists, but an increase elsewhere. lst rounders now earn 75k, a 23% increase over last year. This agreement was hammered out between the players and Tour management. Kudos to the top players for this agreement to help low-ranked players get a financial toe-hold in the game....

Singles:
Winner: $2,500,000
Runner-Up: $1,250,000
Semifinalist: $675,000
Quarterfinalist: $425,000
Round of 16: $265,000
Round of 32: $180,000
Round of 64: $115,000
Round of 128: $75,000

Doubles (each team):
Winner: $660,000
Runner-Up: $330,000
Semifinalist: $164,000
Quarterfinalist: $93,000
Round of 16: $54,000
Round of 32: $34,000
Round of 64: $20,000

Gee..... qualifiers prize money per round:

Q1 $20K 2pts
Q2 $32K 20pts
Q3 $42k 30pts

Talk about a blessing for career ITFs and other lowly ranked players just getting a sniff at a Slam. Pretty good reallocation of prize money, per the agreement between players and tourney management for this event. Hope other Slams follow suit.
