What about prize money for French Open 2021?

“With the prize money awarded at the 2021 tournament, Roland-Garros is continuing to support those players who are going through a difficult time, financially speaking,” stressed Roland-Garros tournament director Guy Forget. “Since we have balanced out the men’s and women’s qualifying draws, the male and female players are now on an equal footing.”

In 2021, the prize money will be “more or less the same as in 2020” with a total prize fund of €34,367,215.
