The following is a list of the prize money up for grabs for men tennis players at the 2014 Rogers Cup. The 2014 Rogers Cup, which is technically the Canadian Open in tennis but everyone calls it the Rogers Cup, for men players is being held on the outdoor hard courts at the Rexall Center in Toronto, Canada from August 2-10, 2014.
The women's tournament is being held on the outdoor courts at Uniprix Stadium in Montreal, Canada. The men and women alternate between the two venues based upon odd and even number years.
The prize money shown is in U.S. dollars and the money is not cumulative. Players only earn the amounts shown for the last round they advance to. For doubles players, money shown is per team, so individual players get half that total.
Based upon the prize money being paid out this year at the Rogers Cup for men players, one has to conclude that tennis is in a very good place right now. The Rogers Cup has increased its payout money by a lot for both men singles and doubles players, as noted below.
