Wimbledon purse hits $23.46 million, retractable roof on the rise


The All England Club announced today that each Wimbledon winner will receive $1.49 million in prize money this year, an increase of 5.8 % over last year.

The total purse for the grass-court major has increased 3.4 % to $23.46 million - holy crap. Now - remind me why I'm not hitting a little yellow ball over a net?

Additionally, the All England Club began its major renovation this week: construction on the Centre Court retractable roof scheduled for completion in 2009. Other improvements will include new digital scoreboards combining scores and the Hawk-Eye line-call challenge system and video.
