In addition to ATP points, bragging rights and a coveted title, the eight men's singles stars and eight doubles teams participating in this November's 2013 ATP World Tour Finals will be competing for a hefty amount of money.

According to the event's official website, singles competitors will earn $142,000 just for qualifying and showing up in London. On the other hand, the doubles teams will earn $71,000 each for participating.

However the doubles teams will have to split their earnings. 

If a singles player runs the table and wins the title with an unblemished record, they'll earn more than $1.9 million. With Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic both playing lights-out tennis to start, there's a strong likelihood of that happening in 2013. 

Below, we'll take a closer look at the purse breakdown at this year's event.

Favorites to Claim Top Prize

Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal has secured the world No. 1 ranking for 2013, but he won't be content to leave London without his first-ever year-end championship.

It's been an unimaginable comeback for the 27-year-old Spaniard, who has won 10 titles since February, including two Grand Slam championships. But don't expect Nadal to cruise to the title in London this weekend. After all, he's been beaten in his previous three tournaments since winning the U.S. Open in September.

With two impressive straight-sets win already under his belt in Group A, Nadal has secured a berth in Sunday's semifinals and will be favored to reach the tournament final assuming he matches up against anyone but the next favorite. 

 

Novak Djokovic

Two-time year-end champion Novak Djokovic may have had his No. 1 ranking stripped from him, but he's proven once again this fall that he's the cream of the crop when it comes to hard-court domination. 

The Serb brings a 17-match winning streak into this year's ATP World Tour Finals and appears to be a lock for the semifinals. His victory over Roger Federer in the two men's Group B opener only reestablishes him as the man to beat in that section of round-robin play.

There isn't a better returner in men's tennis, and that's what makes Djokovic so special on this stage. His unrivaled flexibility and much-improved fight make him a nightmare to play against on any surface, but when Djokovic is firing on all cylinders like he is now, he's almost untouchable at hard-court events.

Having won this tournament two out of the past five years, including in 2012, many would consider Djokovic the favorite to claim the most prize money this November.
