The 2019 Brisbane International prize money is much lower than the one of the Doha Qatar Exxon Mobil Open. The Queensland tournament has "just" a $589,000 financial commitment on the men's side. If in Doha the winner takes home $219,000, in Brisbane it's 90,000.
The finalist will earn $49,000, while the semifinalist brings $27,000 home. $15,000 for the quarter-finalist, 8,000 for the second round losers and 5,000 for the first round losers. Rafael Nadal makes his comeback in the tournament after the 2018 withdrawal.
