Tennis


NEW YORK — The US Open total purse this year is more than $57 million, the richest in tennis history.

The men’s and women’s singles champion will each receive $3.85 million, and the men’s and women’s doubles champion teams will get $740,000. Those are both the highest payouts in US Open history.

The U.S. Tennis Association said Thursday that it worked with the ATP and WTA tours to determine specific round-by-round prize money levels and that the payouts for each round are all Grand Slam tournament records.

The payouts start at $58,000 for the first round of singles.

The USTA adds that it will make a payment of $500,000 to each tour to support the ATP and WTA tour player programs, including pensions.

The final major of the year will be played Aug. 26 through Sept. 8.
