Total prize money for the Jan. 16-29 tournament will be a major-championship-record A$26 million, the Melbourne-based governing body said today in a statement.

Novak Djokovic and Kim Clijsters each won A$2.2 million for taking this year’s singles titles at Melbourne Park.

Djokovic and Sam Stosur each collected $1.8 million for their U.S. Open victories last month.
