Roland Garros has announced its prize money details for the 2022 edition, which begins in less than three weeks.

And the news is that the total purse of €43.6 million ($46 million US) is up some 6.8 per cent from the last full-attendance edition in 2019.

Much of that increase is going elsewhere than the men’s and women’s singles, which is up 1.43 per cent overall.

The winners of the men’s and women’s singles titles will earn €2.2 million ($2.322 million US).

The total doubles purse is up a little more than 6 per cent from 2019. But the bulk of the increase is going to the qualifying, which will pay out 66 per cent more than in 2019, and 30 per cent more than last year.

(Part of that is that the women’s qualifying back in 2019 was just a 96 draw; it has since been bumped to 128 in line with the men, and the other majors).

Here are the breakdowns.
