Emma Raducanu can go home a millionaire if she beats Leylah Fernandez in the US Open final
Emma Raducanu will face Leylah Fernandez in Saturday night’s US Open women’s singles final, and though the glory of sporting achievement is without doubt the main prize, the 18-year-old also has the chance to make herself a millionaire if she can secure victory at Flushing Meadows.
The teenager has been on a stunning run of form which has seen her reach the final without dropping a single set, and gives her the opportunity to become the first British woman to win in New York since 1968.
In the men’s draw, meanwhile, strong favourite Novak Djokovic faces Alexander Zverev of Germany in the second semi-final tonight after Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime plays second seed Daniil Medvedev.
The men’s singles final is also set for Saturday, around three hours after the women’s singles final takes place.
Here’s everything you need to know about the prize money on offer.
The total prize money available for the whole of the 2021 US Open is a record £41.5m, which represents an increase of £216,000 on 2019, the last time the tournament was held in front of a full crowd of spectators.
The 2020 event saw prize money decreased to £38.5m.
For 2021 the winners of both the men’s and women’s singles tournaments will win £1.8m each.
That is £360,000 less than in 2020, with the US Open having decided to reallocate funds so that the winners receive a smaller proportion of the total prize pot than in previous years, while those who exit in the earlier rounds will take home a larger purse. The decision was taken in conjunction with the players themselves.
US Open tournament director Stacey Allaster said. “We determined our round-by-round prize money allocations by engaging in an open dialogue with the players and the management of both tours. We applaud their collective leadership in directing the 2021 US Open prize money to benefit the maximum number of players.”
The prize money is the men’s and women’s singles is allocated as follows (rounded to the nearest thousand):
