2021 Volvo Car Open Charleston Prize Money with $565,530 on offer

The WTA clay season kicks off with a WTA 500 event in Charleston running from April 5th till April 11th with a prize pool of $565,530.

It will be a very strong event in South Carolina, the USA featuring some of the best players in the world including world number one Ashleigh Barty as the top seed. The prize pool of $565,530 is also a sizeable one which attracted 8 of the top 20 players in the world.

Players such as Sofia Kenin, Petra Kvitova, Belinda Bencic, Garbine Muguruza, and defending champion Madison Keys will all attend the 48th edition of the event fighting for that prize money and WTA points.

The winner of the event will walk away with 470 WTA points and 68,570 dollars. The losing player in the final will get a consolation prize of 305 WTA points and 50,130 dollars. Semifinalists will get 185 WTA points and 26,745 dollars. The lower rounds carry fewer points and prize money.

This is the only clay event played on green clay all season which is a bit faster than usual red clay so players who enjoy a bit faster conditions might profit here.
