US Open 2019 Mixed Doubles Prize Money Payouts

Without any doubt the prize money at the 2019 US Open has been increased the most for the mixed doubles players. That is most likely due to Andy Murray and Serena Williams playing together in mixed doubles at the 2019 Wimbledon event. As the superstar players of the sport age in tennis, one way to keep them active, and playing at the Grand Slam tennis events is to entice them to play in mixed doubles.
Playing in mixed doubles is far less taxing than playing in singles. The superstars in tennis can keep playing in mixed doubles for many more years than they can keep playing in singles. If the Grand Slam events keep increasing the mixed doubles prize money, they are increasing the chances of keeping the aging superstars in the game, which can keep fans more interested in the events.
Keeping players like Andy Murray and Serena Williams active at the Grand Slam events can only help tennis to keep growing the game.
