London: This year’s Wimbledon singles tennis champions will receive 2.2 million pounds ($2.84 million) each – a hike of 200,000 pounds for both the men’s and women’s winner, organisers said on Wednesday.

Tournament chiefs unveiled the boosted winners cheques among an increased total prize pot of 31.6 million pounds, up from 28.1 million pounds for the previous year.

The bigger pot benefits players throughout the draw, with first round singles losers set to walk away from the All England Club with 35,000 pounds.

The grasscourt grand slam tournament takes place on the fringes of south-west London from July 3-16: the latest start for the tournament since 1895.
