Serena Williams and Roger Federer each took home a record amount of money for winning their singles finals matches at the 2017 Australian Open.

The total purse for the winners — and those eliminated — at the annual tennis tournament increased 14 percent in 2017 compared to the 2016 amounts.

The total purse set an Australian Open-record, at $37 million USD ($50M AUD). The winner of both the men’s and women’s singles tournaments won $2.67M USD ($3.7M AUD) each, according to Total Sportek.

The large increase is part of an annual agreement, increasing the purse of each Grand Slam tournament, The New York Times reported.
