For the first time since 2020, tennis stars will descend on Queensland to play in the 13th edition of Brisbane International.

Running from December 31st to January 7th, the 2024 Brisbane International will welcome a plethora of world-class players to mark the official start of a brand-new tennis season.

World No. 2 Aryna Sabalenka will attempt to become the first woman to defend the Australian Open in a decade, and getting some much-needed momentum in Brisbane is vital. The Belarusian powerhouse has a slim chance of becoming No. 1 for a second time at the end of January.

She'll be joined in Brisbane by the returning former Australian Open champion Naomi Osaka, who has already landed Down Under to play her first tournament in 15 months. 2022 Wimbledon champion Elena Rybakina will also add power and class to the 64-player singles draw with 16 byes.

Former Grand Slam champions Victoria Azarenka and Jelena Ostapenko are also part of the field. However, Grand Slam finalists Karolina Muchova and Madison Keys have withdrawn from the tournament.

The full entry list for the tournament has been released, and the prize money pot has now been confirmed. The WTA players participating in this event will vie to earn a fair share of $1,736,763.

It is one of the highest amounts of prize money for a tournament at this level, and it represents a 19% increment from 2020 when the tournament was last staged on the WTA tour.

The champion in Brisbane gets the biggest piece of the pie, as she'll walk away with $220,000 and receive 500 ranking points. The runner-up will also make six figures during the week, taking home $135,000 and 325 points.

The two losing semifinalists will earn $79,000 and add 195 points next to their names in the rankings, while quarterinalists will each receive $38,000 and 108 points. Because of an expanded draw size, players must win three matches to reach the last eight.

Those who win at least one match are guaranteed $12,200 and 1 ranking point. There is a marginal increase of $1,800 for those who make the second round. The completed breakdown of prize money and points distribution is highlighted below.
