New world No1 Andy Murray can top off the best season of his career to date with an earnings boost of $2.4m (£1.9m) at the ATP World Tour Finals in London next week.

The ATP's curtain call event will put Murray against the seven men below him in the rankings for tennis' biggest prize money paycheque outside of the four Grand Slams.

Each player will pick up a participation fee worth around $179,000 just for competing in a participation fee.

They will then be awarded the same amount for a win in the round robin stage, $545,000 for a semi-final victory, $1.1m for winning the final and a top prize of $2.4m for finishing the week as an undefeated champion.

Murray, who climbed to the top of the ATP world rankings for the first time last week, has already smashed past his season best prize money haul with $11m in the bank.

Only Novak Djokovic has won more, with the Serb currently topping the season's prize money leaderboard on $11.4m.

The ATP's big prizes are supported by the huge audiences who flock to the O2 Arena with 262,894 fans setting record crowd numbers last year and revenues of $107.1m announced a year earlier.

Murray has been drawn in a group with Marin Cilic, Stan Wawrinka and Kei Nishikori.

Djokovic can regain his No1 crown from Murray should he triumph in London but first he must come through a group featuring Milos Raonic, Gael Monfils and Dominic Thiem.
