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.
The Spaniard will open his run against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or Thanasi Kokkinakis. Also, Grigor Dimitrov, Nick Kyrgios and Andy Murray will play. ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
