Let’s be honest here. The 2019 Rogers Cup is not the US Open. It’s not a Grand Slam tournament. It’s also not something that seemingly has the interest of Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer, who has both declared that they would not be playing at the tournament. Well, that’s good news for the other players, as that means fewer roadblocks to the championship. While it doesn’t have the prestige of other events, the 2019 Rogers Cup boasts of a hefty prize for the winner, especially for the men’s singles tournament with over a million dollars awaiting the champ. The women’s purse breakdown for the 2019 Rogers Cup has yet to be released (stay tuned), but whatever the total sum for their bracket is, it’s not likely to be significantly thicker than the 2018 money breakdown.

The Total Payout
Last year, Rafael Nadal topped the 2018 Rogers Cup and took home a total of $1,020,425. This year, if Nadal wins it again, he’ll take home a slightly bigger prize amounting to $1,049,040. The runner-up will get half of what the champ will get at $531,010. Those losing in the round of 32 will not go home empty-handed, as they will each get $36,830, which is a cool sum nevertheless. There’s a big difference between the pay of the men and the women at Rogers Cup, with the former getting the bigger slice of the financial pie. In any case, the $519,480 prize that Simona Halep pocketed last year as the women’s singles tournament winner was not something to kick herself over.
