The 2021 Davis Cup will feature 18 nations battling it out over the course of 10 days from November 25th till December 5th and there is a £16 million prize pool to be distributed.
The nations will battle it out for the title of the best tennis nation in the world and many of the players will be highly interested in that trophy. However, a £16 million prize pool is something not many will complain about either as it makes this final event of 2021 one to watch. The prize pool is down about 4 million £ from 2019 but it's to be expected during the pandemic.
When it comes to the distribution the winning players will receive a total of £1.8 million while their team federation will get £910,000. The runners-up will get a combined check of £1.3 million while their team federation will be rewarded with £623,000. Both the semi-finalists will be paid £1.12 million, with each team federation receiving £552,000.
The players of the eight teams who will qualify for the quarter-finals will get £940,000 and their team federations will receive £442,000. Intriguingly, nobody will go home empty-handed, as the five players of the teams that will fail to reach beyond the group stage will also receive £442,000 along with £220,000 for their team federations.
