- Andy Murray – potential prize money for the 2012 US Open champion
- How far can Murray go as he looks to take to the court for the first time since Wimbledon after suffering a hip injury.
NEW YORK, USA – Andy Murray will chase after a second US Open title, five years after he won his first Grand Slam, but how much could he pocket?
It feels like a long time since Andy Murray took to a court, after hobbling out of Wimbledon this year with a hip injury that has disrupted his summer. Even his preparation for the hard court summer has been affected with Murray pulling out of the Rogers Cup and Cincinnati Masters events.
How much could Andy Murray earn for each round of the US Open?
|PLACE||PRIZE MONEY $ (£)|
|Round 4||$253,625 (£198.1k)|
|Round 3||$144k (£122.5k)|
|Round 2||$86k (£67.2k)|
|Round 1||$50k (£39k)|
What does this mean for Andy Murray?
His Slams this year have not yielded the kinds of results we have come to expect from the gritty British No. 1. He was ousted in the fourth round of the Australian Open, where many saw him as a shoe-in for the title. His clay court season preparations saw many off-kilter performances in the run up to the French Open, although he battled his way to the semi-finals there, and the quarter-finals of Wimbledon where he was defending a second title at SW19.
He is defending quarter-final points from last year at Flushing Meadows, and would pocket a cool £367.2k if he reaches the same stage, with of course his eyes on the higher prize of £2.89m for walking away with the title once more.
