The French Open 2013 prize money will increase for the singles champions, including players who lose in earlier rounds of the competition at this prestigious claycourt Grand Slam event.

The Roland Garros organizers revealed this week that the overall prize money total for the French Open will be $28.7 million, up from $24.6 million last year. The singles winners will each receive $1.96 million, up from $1.64 million in 2012.

For players eliminated in the second, third and fourth rounds, they will receive a significant payout compared to last year with the prize money increasing by 25 percent more than last year’s.

French Tennis Federation Director Gilbert Ysern said that they wish “to maintain its effort with regards to players eliminated during the first week.”

The Roland Garros 2013 tournament will begin on May 26. Seven-time champion Rafael Nadal is expected to be back to defend the title.  Last year, Nadal defeated top-ranked Novak Djokovic for a record-setting seventh title in Paris. The Spaniard missed the Australian Open tournament in January.
