Wimbledon singles winners will bank a cool one million pounds for their efforts after the All England Club revealed their 2010 prize money today.

This year's Wimbledon singles winner will bank one million pounds for their effort - an increase of 17.6%

Last year's champions - Roger Federer and Serena Williams - each banked £850,000 but the total prize fund for this year's event has risen by a recession-busting £1.175 million.

The total prize money for the event will be £13.7m, a 9.4% increase on last year.

"Wimbledon exists in a highly competitive global marketplace and it is the world's best players who create and drive the interest," said All England chairman Tim Phillips.

"It is important that we offer a level of prize money which is both appropriate to the prestige of the event and which gives the players full and fair reward."
