Iga Świątek earned $ 2,261,213 on the court in the 2020 season. This puts her in third place on the tennis payroll. Only the American Sofia Kenin - $ 4 302 970 and the Japanese Naomi Osaka - $ 3 352 755 earned more.
Kenin won, among others, the Grand Slam Australian Open, and also reached the final of the French Open, in which she lost to Świątek. For her historic triumph at the Paris courts alone, the Pole received 1.6 million euros, or about 1.88 million dollars.
Osaka, on the other hand, won the US Open in New York, where the winner received as much as three million dollars.
The tournament in Linz ended on Sunday - the last one in this year's WTA calendar. Due to the pandemic, the 2020 edition of the masters tournament - WTA Finals in Shenzhen, in which the eight best players of the season took part - was canceled earlier.
