It became known how much Svitolina earned for Wimbledon-2023
Ukrainian tennis player Elina Svitolina (No. 76 WTA) earned 600 thousand pounds sterling (more than 29 million hryvnias) for her performance at the English Open, the Independent reports. The 28-year-old Odesa native reached the semifinals at Wimbledon-2023, losing in the quarterfinals to the Czech Republic's Markéta Vondroušová.
The total prize money for this year's tournament in men's and women's singles is a record £32 million (~$42 million). That's a 10.9% increase from 2022, and the total will be split equally between the men's and women's tournaments.
The winners of the men's and women's singles will take home a record £2.35 million (~$3 million), 17.5% more than Novak Djokovic and Lena Rybakina won a year ago.
The prize fund for reaching the first round of the main draw of the tournament is £55,000. This amount was given to those tennis players who did not win a single match.
It should be noted that Ukrainian tennis player Lyudmyla Kichenok, who won the Wimbledon-2023 mixed doubles, will earn a much smaller sum than the winner of the singles tournament. The 31-year-old Dnipro native and her partner received £448,000 ($586,000) for their victory.
