French Open increase in prize money pot to £20.2m
Prize money at the French Open has been increased to more than 28m euros (£20.2m), with the singles champions each receiving 1.8m euros (£1.29m).
The biggest increases have come for those losing in the early rounds.
Players beaten in the second and third rounds, and the quarter-finals, will win 20% more prize money than in 2014.
The French Open remains the least financially rewarding of the grand slams to the players.
Singles champions at this year's Australian Open received £1.56m while at Wimbledon last year it was £1.7m. Last year's US Open offered £2.03 million for singles champions.
The French Open, the second Grand Slam of the year, starts at Roland Garros in Paris on 19 May.
