The US Open is set to bring the curtain down on the Grand Slam calendar in some style, with a record £38.5million in prize money to be handed out come the end of the competition.

The funds are set to be shared among some less familiar names this year, with the likes of Serena Williams, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic missing from the main draws.
