How much will Elena Rybakina earn for winning Wimbledon final against Ons Jabeur?

Elena Rybakina made history as she became the first player from Kazakhstan to win a grand slam title.

The 23-year-old completed a sensational comeback to beat Ons Jabeur 3-6 6-2 6-2 in an enthralling Wimbledon final. 

After a poor first set, Rybakina began to look more assured as she improved and began to pile on the pressure.

In the end, the Kazakhstan player turned on the style and powered past her opponent to claim her first major title.

Before her SW19 triumph, Rybakina's best run at a grand slam took place during the 2021 French Open, where she reached the quarter-final.

Away from majors, the youngster also finished fourth at the 2020 Summer Olympics after losing to Elina Svitolina.

Up until this year's Wimbledon, Rybakina had only competed in one WTA 1000 final. That came back in 2021 when she lost to Veronika Kudermetova at the Indian Wells Open.

Meanwhile, her last tournament victory came back in 2020 when the Kazakhstan star beat Zhang Shuai to claim the 2020 Hobart International.

Rybakina's sensational victory at Wimbledon is likely to be a major turning point for her career.

The triumph will also give the player a major financial boost after winning £2,000,000 for her SW19 heroics.

This is £300,000 more than she would have received last year, before the tournament agreed to increase the prize pool.

Ons Jabeur, on the other hand, took home £1,050,000 for finishing as the runner-up.
