That’s How Much Money There Will Be At The Australian Open in 2022: The Australian Open (Happy Slam) is the first major Grand Slam tennis tournament of the year and traditionally takes place in Melbourne Park. The tennis event will be held for the 110th time in 2022. 

A total of 75 million Australian dollars (48 million euros) in prize money will be distributed to the tennis stars in 2022. This means that the prize money has only increased slightly compared to the previous year, but it is again a prize money record. 

The top-placed stars earned much less than in the previous year due to the Covid-19 situation in 2021, and the prize money up to the quarter-finals was increased. This was changed again in 2022.
