The tournament revealed a total price pot of £40.35million, 11.1 percent more than last year in a bid to avert a player boycott after the ATP and WTA announced it had been stripped of world ranking points. The move came after Wimbledon banned Russian and Belarusian athletes over the war in Ukraine. The two singles champions will take home £2million each, the runners-up half that, while those beaten in the first round will still collect £50,000.
