ATP Tennis Prize Money Up for Grabs at the 2019 ATP Finals


First, here's the payouts for each spot from winner to runner-up plus the bonus money for participating and for each round-robin win. There's no extra money payouts for the six players who do not reach the finals match. They just earn the participation fee and bonus money for each round-robin win as listed below.

  • Winner - $2.011 million (see below for final payouts)

The winner gets $2.011 million for the win including a $657,000 payout for the semi-final win and a $1.354 million payout for the final win plus bonus money as listed below where I give the range the winner can win.

  • Runner-up - $657,000

The runner-up gets $657,000 for making the finals match plus bonus money as listed below where I give the range the runner-up can win.

  • Participation Fee - $215,000

All eight players who play a match get the $215,000 participation fee including the winner and the runner-up player.

  • Round Robin Win - $215,000

Each player gets a $215,000 win bonus for each round-robin match he wins. Each player plays in three round-robin matches. If he wins one he gets $215,000, if he wins two he gets $430,000 and if he wins all three matches he gets $645,000.



Range of Prize Money for Each Player at 2019 ATP Finals


  • Winner Will Earn - $2.441 million or $2.656 million or $2.871 million


The winner of the 2019 ATP Finals will earn $2.441 million or $2.656 million or $2.871 million depending upon how many round-robin matches he wins. The winner is guaranteed to earn at least $2.441 million.  The winner gets $2.011 million for the overall win as outlined above plus the $215,000 participation fee plus at least $215,000 for a round-robin win. 

It is possible but unlikely that the winner will win just one round robin match. If the winner wins two round robin matches he will earn $2.656 million and if he wins all three round robin matches he will earn $2.871 million as an undefeated champion.

  • Runner-Up Will Earn - $1.087 million or $1.302 million or $1.517 million

The runner-up at the 2019 ATP Finals will earn $1.087 million or $1.302 million or $1.517 million. The runner-up earns $657,000 for being 2nd plus the $215,000 participation fee plus at least $215,000 for one round robin win. So he will earn at least $1.087 million. If he wins two round robin matches he will earn $1.302 million and if he wins three round robin matches he will earn $1.517 million.

  • Remaining Players Will Earn - $215,000 or $430,000 or $645,000 or $860,000


The remaining six players will all each earn the $215,000 participation fee plus another $215,000 for each round robin match they win. So each player will earn anywhere from $215,000 to a max of $860,000 depending upon how many round robin matches they win. 

It's quite possible for a player to win all three round robin matches and then lose in the semifinals. Such a player would earn $860,000.
