Women will still make less than men in Paris

Associated Press

PARIS -- The winners of this year's French Open will earn more money than last year, but women will still make less than men.

Total prize money is going up 6 percent to $14.2 million, the French Tennis Federation said Tuesday. The men's champion will earn $915,180 and the women's champ will earn $892,300.

The French Open, like Wimbledon, pays more prize money to men. At the other two Grand Slams, the U.S. Open and the Australian Open, the pay is equal.

This year is the third consecutive year prize money has increased at the French Open, which runs May 26-June 8. The overall men's increase is 7.7 percent; the increase for the women is 7.6 percent.
