Magdalena Fręch has a great start in the Grand Slam Australian Open. The Pole has already reached the fourth round. This comes with a well-deserved high financial bonus.
Magdalena Fręch gives us a lot of emotions at the Australian Open. Few experts predicted that the Łódź player would be able to reach the second week of competition on the courts in Melbourne. Meanwhile, she has already defeated Daria Saville, Caroline Garcia and Anastasia Zacharova. The triumph over Garcia, who is currently in 19th place in the WTA ranking, and in the past was even in 4th place, must be particularly impressive.
How much did Magdalena Fręch earn?
Reaching the fourth round of the Australian Open is a great sporting and financial success. This year, the prize pool is larger again, and male and female tennis players benefit from it. Fręch is already sure of a bonus of PLN 375,000. Australian dollars. This translates into approximately PLN 993,000.
The scale of the Polish tennis player’s success is shown by the fact that so far in her Australian Open career she has not been doing well. She never made it past the first round.
A chance for more and a fight with a star as a reward
Possible advancement to the quarterfinals could result in Fręch earning 600,000 Australian dollars, or over one and a half million zlotys. If the Pole wants to be in the top eight in the competition on the courts in Melbourne, she must defeat the American Coco Gauff. There is not much to say about the class of this player. Suffice it to mention that she ranks 4th in the WTA rankings, and last year she won the US Open Grand Slam.
The favorite is therefore known, but Fręch has already shown that she can break barriers. Even if he loses, it is certain that he will record his personal best in the WTA rankings after the Australian Open. In the virtual ranking, he is in 49th position, but we have to wait to see what position he will ultimately take after the competition. However, we know that she will overtake Magda Linette and become the second best Polish tennis player after Iga Świątek.
