The staging of the first wheelchair singles events at Wimbledon introduces significant prize money increases for wheelchair tennis players. The wheelchair singles winner would receive GBP 25,000 (EUR 32,270). A total of GBP 75,000 will be awarded in the singles, with the runners-up, semi-finalists and quarter-finalists being awarded.
