There is no prize money given to Junior winners at Wimbledon, or other junior competitions. However, winning a junior Wimbledon title can be indirectly very lucrative. Wimbledon has a tradition of awarding the junior champions a wildcard into the main draw the following year - the main draw being otherwise limited to those ranked in the world top 100 and those who have come through 3 rounds of qualifying. A place in the main draw is worth £11,500 (2011) just for losing in the first round. Therefore, the junior champions earn nothing on the day for their win, but do have a good chance of collecting money later, as a direct result of their win.
