On Sunday, July 14, Roger Federer of Switzerland and Novak Djokovic of Serbia will square off in the 2019 Wimbledon final. It will be a repeat of the finals in 2014 and 2015, both of which Djokovic won.

Both players are familiar with the big stage: Djokovic, 32, is looking to collect his 16th Grand Slam title, while Federer, 37, is hoping to win his 21st.

Prize money is also on the line. The champion will collect a £2.35 million check (about $2.95 million), up from £2.25 million (about $2.83 million) in 2018.

The runner-up will take home a check for £1.175 million (about $1.48 million).

It's not just Federer and Djokovic who will be walking away with big paychecks. Here's the full breakdown of how much the other singles competitors earned at this year's Wimbledon:

Semi-finalist: £588,000 (about $738,850)
Quarter-finalist: £294,000 (about $369,420)
Round of 16: £176,000 (about $221,150)
Round of 32: £111,000 (about $139,480)
Round of 64: £72,000 (about $90,470)
Round of 128: £45,000 (about $56,540)
