Jannik Sinner reveals the key to success
Jannik Sinner spoke hot off the heels of the victory that earned him the semifinals in Toronto.
“It was a very tough match. It was enough that in the second set I committed a couple of free errors and Gael immediately raised the level of his tennis. In the third set I tried to play cleaner, trying to stick to my tactics, and that allowed me to win. I am very happy and pleased with the performance and the tightness.”
Record-breaking prize money for the U.S. Open, kicking off later this month in Flushing Meadows: the New York Slam tournament will put up as much as $65 million, $5 more than last season, resulting in the richest tournament in 2023.
Specifically, whoever wins the men’s and women’s singles tournaments will take home a prize of $3 million, while the increase from last year is even higher for tennis players who are eliminated in the earlier rounds. The New York Post reports.
Those who go out in the first round of singles will receive $81,500: consider that in 2019 those who were eliminated immediately in the main draw did not get more than $58,000. The finalist will receive $1.5 million, those who stop in the semifinals will draw a check for $775,000, in the quarters one will “settle” for $455,000.
The prize money at the Us Open is worth $65 million overall: much more than Wimbledon ($56.5 million), Roland Garros ($54 million) and the Australian Open ($53 million). Among Us Open 2023 favorites Carlos Alcaraz is ahead of everyone, then Novak Djokovic, Daniil Medvedev, and Jannik Sinner.
