World No1 Novak Djokovic is set become the first tennis player to make more than $100m in prize money at this year's French Open.
More prize money is on offer than ever before at Roland Garros, with the men and women's singles winners promised €2m (£1.5m).
Yet Djokovic only needs to make the final four — something he has achieved five years in a row at the clay court grand slam — to cross the $100m mark by bumping his career earnings of $99.7m with a semi-finalists' prize worth $330,000.
The Serb will make €1m for making his third final in a row and if he can secure his first win at the tournament he will take home its largest-ever prize of €2m, following an 11 per cent increase on the €1.8m awarded to last year's singles winners Stan Wawrinka and Serena Williams.
Despite the increase, the French Open remains the least lucrative tennis grand slam. Wimbledon is also increasing its prize money pool this year, boosting the winners' pay cheque from £1.9m to £2m.
Yet the US Open, which is yet to announce its prize money breakdown for this year, rewards tennis players most handsomely with last year's winners picking up the equivalent of £2.1m.
Reigning US Open champion Djokovic surpassed Roger Federer as the highest-earning tennis player in history earlier this year with victory at the Miami Open.
Djokovic has already earned over $6m this year, over twice as much as what closest challenger Murray has made.
Meanwhile, Federer has struggled with a back injury and has been forced to pull out from the French Open after failing to recover in time.
