The first Grand Slam is well underway in Melbourne as the second round matches conclude on Thursday, and with even first round losers earning over $70,000, we are taking a closer look at the staggering prize money for this year’s Australian Open.

What is The Overall Australian Open 2023 Prize Money?

Novak Djokovic, who heads into this year’s tournament as the undeniable favourite across tennis betting sites, leads the ATP World Tour’s all-time prize money charts having claimed $159 million across his career.

The Serbian, who was deported from last year’s tournament for not having the correct COVID-19 vaccination status, will be vying to extend his Australian Open titles record to 10 titles, while adding a cool $1,998,278 in prize money to his eye-watering total.

The total combined prize pool for this year’s Australian Open stands at AUD $76.5 million, which is around $52.6 million when converted to US dollars at the current conversion rate.

This represents a 3.38% increase on last year’s overall prize pool.
