Prize Money Up for Grabs for Doubles Players 2019 Australian Open Grand Slam Tennis Tournament

The 2019 Australian Open Grand Slam tennis tournament for men and women players on the ATP and WTA circuits is taking place this month this month from January 14-27, 2019, on the outdoor hard courts at the Melbourne Park sports center located in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Here is a list of the prize money up for grabs for the doubles tennis players at the 2019 Australian Open.



The Australian Open is the first of the four major tournaments played annually. The majors are the best tennis tournaments played each year and and they also pay the most prize money. All four majors pay men and women doubles players equal amounts of prize money.

The prize money listed below is not cumulative, players only earn the amounts shown for the last round they advance to. All prize money has been converted from Australian dollars to American dollars.

Total prize money up for grabs at the 2019 Australian Open for all players is $44.63 million. The total prize money in Australian dollars this year is a record amount but because of the drop of the Australian dollar vs the US dollar the amount of prize money in US dollars is lower for most rounds below except for the first three rounds.

The amounts listed are per team, to get the per player amounts just divide by two as noted below. Below the doubles prize money is the mixed doubles prize money.
