French Open prize money up to EUR2.2m for singles champions

Singles champions at this year's French Open will take home EUR2.2million, as the revised prize pot for Roland-Garros has been announced.

The overall pot has increased 10 per cent to over EUR39m, with the rise seeing winners, finalists and semi-finalists take around five per cent more than they did last year.

There is a bigger increase in prize money for those who fall by the wayside earlier in the tournament, as quarter-finalists now earn EUR380,000 and beaten first-round entrants EUR40,000.

Among the other announcements was confirmation that the draw will take place on May 24 at 7pm local time.

Rafael Nadal and Jelena Ostapenko were the singles winners in 2017.
