    Next year's Australian Open will offer record total prize-money, tournament organisers have announced.
    The total pot in Melbourne will be 30 million Australian dollars - £19.3million - which represents a rise of four million Australian dollars (£2.6million) on the 2012 tournament.
    The increase means the first grand slam of 2013 will be the richest in tennis history.
    Prize money for this year's Wimbledon amounted to £16.06million, while the US Open paid 24,054,000 US dollars (£14.9million).
    Tennis Australia chief executive Steve Wood announced the increase today at the official launch of the tournament.
    Wood said: "We have led the world in prize money for these incredible athletes and we want to ensure that the Australian Open continues to make a major contribution to the financial wellbeing of professional tennis players
