Wimbledon Prize Money Goes Up

2011 Wimbledon singles champions will each receive 1.1 million pounds, an increase of 10 percent from last year.

12-months ago the prize money for the men's and women's title winners broke the 1 million pound mark.

The total prize fund for the tournament is 14.6 million pounds.

Because the British pound has strengthened since last year, the increase is even larger when counted in dollars.
