Gentlemen's and Ladies' Singles champions will earn $2.9 million dollars, which is 10 percent more than what last year's winners Andy Murray and Marion Bartoli received.

Those exiting in the early rounds and in qualifying will notice the biggest difference in their paychecks. First round singles losers will get a 14.9 percent raise while those who lose in the third round of qualifying will earn a 12.5 percent increase.

Wimbledon's prize money increase continues the recent trend of all Grand Slam tournaments raising their overall prize purses in the last several years.

The third major of the year will be held from June 23 to July 6.
