There will be an increase in prize money at this year's French Open, the FFT have announced.
The FFT have revealed that prize money at Roland Garros will be up 19 per cent on 2012 to €10.1million.
The announcement follows a recent statement made by US Open tournament organisers, who are boosting the prize money at Flushing Meadows to $50million by 2017.
The FFT are opting for a similar long-term plan. By 2016 the prize pot will be boosted to €15m.
ATP Executive Chairman and President Brad Drewett told reporters: "The Roland Garros prize money increases are another positive step forward for our players and we welcome the long-term commitment the FFT has made through 2016.
"Following on from the Australian Open and US Open increases, Roland Garros is the latest Grand Slam to step up and recognise the input the players have in the success of its tournament.
"The progress that has been made through our discussions with the Slams over the past 15 months has been truly significant for our sport as a whole."
The biggest boosts, percentage wise, have been handed to the second, third and fourth rounds, which will be up 25 per cent on twelve months ago..
