This year the Wimbledon Championships will be bigger than ever, much to the delight of the participants, who will pocket a total prize pool of over $63 million (£50 million). The winners of the women's and men's singles will pocket a stellar prize fund of almost $3.5 million each (£2.7 million to be precise, up from £2.35 million last season).

In detail, here are the prize money for each round:

1st round: £60,000
2nd round: £93,000
3rd round: £143,000
4th round: £226,000
Quarter-finals: £375,000
Semi-finals: £715,000
Finalists: £1.4 million
Winner: £2.7 million

"When we set the levels this year, we tried to find a balance between providing a good measure of security for the left side of the draw, who rely on Grand Slam prize money to fund their training, travel and expenses during all year long, while rewarding the right side of the draw as it progresses further.”

AELTC chairman Deborah Jevans talked about the prize money up for grabs at this year's Championships, explaining how the board of the London Major has tried to balance the prize money between those who will be eliminated in the first rounds and those who will reach the final stages of the tournament.

We recall Rafael Nadal has just announced that he will not participate in Wimbledon.

"During my post-match press conference at Roland Garros I was asked about my summer calendar and since then I have been training only on clay. Yesterday it was announced that I will play in the Paris Olympics in the summer, my last. With this objective , I believe (in mutual agreement with my team) that the best thing for my body is not to change surfaces and continue to play on clay until that event. This is why I will miss playing the Wimbledon Championships this year I am saddened that I will not be able to experience the fantastic atmosphere of this extraordinary event which will always be in my heart, and be with all the British fans who have always given me great support," wrote the Spaniard on his Instagram account.

There shouldn't be Novak Djokovic in London, who is recovering from knee surgery in order to participate in the Paris Olympics. It should instead be the last Wimbledon of Andy Murray's career, who should announce his farewell at Chruch Road.
