Wimbledon officials have agreed to a substantial increase to the prize money for the 2012 Championships following talks with the world's leading players.

All England club chairman Philip Brook met with Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer at Indian Wells in March to discuss the increasingly thorny issue. As a result, the total fund for 2012 will increase by 10% to £16.1million with the mens and ladies champions receiving an extra £50,000 each, taking their prize money to £1.15million.
