Sports tournaments have us used to exorbitant figures, and really large amounts of money. In fact, it is known that we cannot compare the salary of a professional athlete with that of practically any other profession. In the case of football, a player can save his financial future with just one signing. An elite boxer, with just one fight, will win more than the average person will ever make in his or her lifetime. In tennis, it depends on the tournament you are talking about, the same.
The current Wimbledon tournament will distribute a total of 15,681,900 euros among all participants and instances of the cup. In the case of the finalists, the winnings will be 1,046,230 euros. The money grows with the passing of the rounds. For jumping onto the track among the 128 participants in the individual table, you win 55,799 euros. The second round is paid at 87,186 euros. The third round is worth 133,685 euros. The eighths, 210,409 euros. The quarters, 348,744 euros and the semifinals, 540,553 euros.
Now, if we compare it with the prizes awarded by the Copa América, the most important tournament in the South American continent, and which brings together stars such as Neymar or Messi, we can see that Conmebol awards a total of 78,000,000 in prizes for the entire tournament.
Consequently, in the hypothetical case that Novak Djokovic becomes champion of the competition, he would be taking a total of 1,976,220 euros, and the trophy to his home. In the case of the champion, he will take a total of 15 million in addition to the trophy, which each Selection will define internally how to divide it among its players. If the distribution were the same for each one, Lionel Messi would be getting something like $ 650,000 dollars.
