How much prize money could the Brits earn at the French Open 2021
For the second year in a row, the pandemic makes its presence felt with between a 10-12% drop in prize money for the winners of singles rounds from the third round, but an eye-watering 23-27% drop in doubles prize money.
Qualifiers’ prize money saw no change in a bid to assist players, and also no change to the first two rounds of the singles and wheelchair events.

What does this mean for the Brits?
The British woman have had scant luck on the courts this season. Both have yet to win back to back matches this season and neither have had much time at all on the dirt this season.
However Evans’ game started to finally click on the clay, reaching the semi-final in Monte Carlo, and Norrie’s steady consistency saw him reach two finals on the terre battue in Estoril and Lyon. However, his draw comes with a little jeopardy.
On paper this is not a bad draw for the former semi-finalist but right now Konta is short on both court time and seemingly confidence and those elusive back-to-back wins may better come on the grass, which usually suits her game better.
Something seemed to click for Evans on the clay, with a spirited run to the semi-final of the Monte Carlo Masters, so this could be the year he finally gets past the first round, but he does have some solid clay courters in his draw.
Sadly for the most consistent player this clay court season, Norrie has arguably the toughest draw of the Brits. However, he has much improved in many aspects of his game, born out by two clay court finals this year, but Nadal in his wheel-house in the third round is a brutal draw.
Roland Garros takes place between 30 May – 13 June
