0

Consistent with a commitment from tennis’ stakeholders to provide financial support for lower-ranked players during the COVID-19 pandemic, the FFT has announced a boost in Roland Garros prize money in qualifying and the first round.

The clay-court Grand Slam is redistributing money from the latter rounds to increase qualifying prize money by more than 27 per cent from last year. Losers in the first round of qualifying will take home €10,000, a 42 per cent increase on last year.

In the main draw singles, players who fall in the first round will take home €60,000, an increase of more than 30 per cent on last year’s total. The first and second rounds of the men’s doubles have also been positively impacted by prize money increases of 30 per cent and four per cent, respectively.

The tournament, which has moved its traditional main draw late May start to 27 September, will unveil its new retractable roof on Court Philippe-Chatrier, giving players and fans guaranteed action throughout the 15-day event. Qualifying action begins Monday.
