Rafael Nadal sent Dominic Thiem in four sets to secure his 12th French Open Championship and landed a massive paycheck in the process.

Nadal joined Ashleigh Barty as the 2019 tournament winners; Barty defeated Marketa Vondrousova for the woman's title.

For both men and women, the 2019 tournament accounted for a record $ 14 million, with the winner receiving $ 2.62 million. WTA Tennis shared the complete list of payouts to the players, which are identical for the competitions.

Nadal's payday is the reward for a 6-3, 5-7, 6-1, 6-1 triumph on Sunday. The Spaniard gathered his 18th big single title, which is the second most in men's history behind Roger Federer.

Meanwhile, Barty celebrated his first Grand Slam single title and became the first Australian to win the French opening when Margaret Court did it 46 years ago in 1973.

Now ranked second in the world, Barty had a fantastic day at the camp and cruised to a 6-1, 6-3 dominance.

"It's incredible. I'm a little speechless," Barty said on Saturday Jonathan Jurejko by BBC Sport. "I played almost the perfect match."

Thiem and Vondrousova can, despite the disappointment of losing in the final, be satisfied with $ 1.34 million. WTP notes that runner-up received a 5.36 percent increase over the 2018 tournament when Thiem also fell to Nadal.

Semi Finalistswho presented Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer on men's side and Johanna Konta and 17-year-old American Amanda Anisimovalanded a $ 662,000 check.

Granted, this is a case where a six-digit price is not always calming. Djokovic was not satisfied with the context of his exit.

"Of course when you play in the hurricane of relationships, you know it's hard to do your best," said the French open champion in 2016, according to Luigi Gatto of Tennis World.

Nevertheless, he lasted a lap longer than a group of quarter-finalists who included Stan Wawrinka, Alexander Zverev, Simona Halep and Sloane Stephens. They earned $ 466,000.

Players who reached the 16 each round totaled $ 273,000, followed by $ 143,000 to third round exits. They defeated in the first and second round received $ 52,000 and $ 98,000 respectively.
