The following is a list of the prize money up for grabs for women tennis players in doubles play at the 2014 Madrid Open, which is being played from May 4th to May 11th, 2014, on the outdoor clay courts at La Caja Magica (The Magic Box) tennis stadium located at the Manzanares Park Tennis Center in Madrid, Spain.
The Madrid Open is not considered a major tournament in tennis, but it is an important tennis tournament annually because it offers high prize money and most of the elite players in tennis use the Madrid Open as a tune-up for the French Open. The French Open is the second major of the year in tennis annually, and it is also played on clay courts.
Unlike at the French Open, and all four majors in tennis, the prize money at the Madrid Open is not the same for men and women doubles players. Women earn less than the men, but not by huge amounts. To compare see Prize money for men tennis players in doubles play at 2014 Madrid Open.
All prize money shown has been converted from euros to dollars. The prize money shown is not cumulative, players only earn the amount shown for the last round they advance to. The total amount of prize money for women tennis players at the 2014 Madrid Open is $5.1 million (that includes singles and doubles prize money).
