French Open 2023 prize money: How much will players earn round-by-round?

There will be a new men’s champion at the French Open this year with 14-time singles winner Rafael Nadal absent from Roland Garros for the first time since 2005.

Novak Djokovic will face Casper Ruud in Sunday’s final after outlasting an injury-hit Carlos Alcaraz in their blockbuster semi-final. Djokovic will go for a men’s record 23rd grand slam title while Ruud has made it through to back-to-back Roland Garros finals. The Norwegian was thrashed in straight sets by Nadal last year.

Meanwhile, Iga Swiatek will bid for a hat-trick of Roland Garros titles and the second in a row as the world No 1 faces Karolina Muchova on Saturday. Swiatek is yet to drop a set in Paris but Muchova will be a tough opponent after producing a gutsy performance to stun second seed Aryna Sabalenka in the semi-finals.
