This Year’s US Open Winner Set To Net A Record $3.3 Million In Prize Money
Roger will be confident going into the next round and will have to square off against the winner of the match between John Isner and Jiri Vesely in round 4. Good luck in that match — it should be a classic.
Last year’s US Open winner, Marin Cilic, is still in the hunt for the trophy and will be hoping to defend his crown to receive as much as $3.3 million in prize money!
