Wimbledon begins on Monday, and a total of £2 million, or $2,677,148, awaits the winners of both the men's and women's events. It's an increase on last year's earnings.
Reigning champions Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams will be fancied to scoop the biggest fiscal rewards on offer in London, but stars such as Andy Murray and French Open winner Garbine Muguruza also have strong chances.
Here is a full breakdown of the prize money available at Wimbledon 2016:

Djokovic has dominated the sport in 2016, taking the Australian Open and French Open titles along the way. It's more than a slight psychological advantage that he saw off Murray in both finals.
But the Serb may be more concerned by a draw that put him in the top half of the bracket with Swiss legend Roger Federer and powerful Canadian Milos Raonic. Djokovic could face the latter in a quarter-final, according to BBC Sport's Russell Fuller.
That would be an interesting match since Raonic boasts the booming service game to upset the methodical pace the top seed usually likes to set.
Meanwhile, ESPN.com's Brad Gilbert thinks the third seed, Federer, has been handed a decent draw:
Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated gives the soon-to-be 35-year-old Federer "a puncher’s chance to knock off Djokovic" if the two meet in the final four, citing the clash of styles as particularly intriguing.
Perhaps the more intriguing question is, can Muguruza stop Williams at Wimbledon the way she did at Roland Garros? It will be a tall order against the most dominant player in women's tennis, who has six Wimbledon titles to her credit.
But a win would put Spaniard Muguruza atop the WTA rankings, per James Walker-Roberts of Sky Sports. What should further buoy Muguruza is Williams' tough draw.
Both Williams and Djokovic will take some beating at a venue they've owned in recent years. There are plenty of contenders who could do it, but the lion's share of the prize money should still go to familiar names this year.
