Davis Cup prize money: How much will winners of 2023 Finals event get?

As well as international bragging rights, players and teams are handsomely rewarded for their participation in the Davis Cup.

Canada won the tournament in 2022 but will have to settle for a lesser financial prize this time after being knocked out by Finland in the quarterfinals of the 2023 edition.

Novak Djokovic also helped Serbia oust Great Britain on their way to a semifinal meeting with Italy in Malaga, extending his unbeaten personal Davis Cup run to 21 matches by defeating Cameron Norrie. That streak was ended by Jannik Sinner in the semis.

“Playing for your country is always the greatest pressure and motivation,” Djokovic said afterwards. “After a long season, we can feel it in the legs.”

What is the total prize money for the Davis Cup 2023?

The total prize money for 2023 is a little more than $6.5 million (around £5.2m), according to multiple reports.

The riches on offer are a far cry from the origins of the tournament in 1900, when the players involved set up a contest between the USA and Great Britain and one of them, Dwight Davis, ordered the trophy and paid for it with his own money.

Davis Cup prize money breakdown 2023

Here’s a breakdown of the reported prize money for the Davis Cup 2023 from the group stages to the finalists and champions.

The potential prize money is significantly less than players stand to rake in for reaching the latter stages of the singles competitions at grand slam tournaments, but the Davis Cup clearly means much more than mere monetary gain for the stars involved.

“I’m grateful to once again be in the national team,” said Djokovic, calling the tournament one of his “greatest goals” of the season.

“Davis Cup has historically been the most important team competition for nations in tennis, at over 100 years old. It is the most important one to win for any tennis nation.”

Stage Prize money
Winner $2.1m (£1.7m)
Runner Up $1.5m (£1.2m)
Semifinal $1.3m (£1m)
Quarterfinal $1.1m (£873,000)
Group Stages $514,000 (£408,000)
