Following his sensational win in the final of the 2023 ATP Finals, Novak Djokovic is now very close to earning $200 million in total prize money won throughout his career. The Serb will be the first to achieve this outstanding milestone, just like many other records, and approximately twenty million short of the target.
Djokovic has won a total of $180,643,353 in prize money throughout his career and is way ahead of the second player on this list, Rafael Nadal, who has earned $134,640,719. Roger Federer is third on this list. Thanks to his $4,411,500 payday after winning the 2023 ATP Finals, the Serb is very close to the massive milestone.
In 2023, Djokovic earned a total of $15.9 million in prizes. This goes to say that he must have at least one more similarly successful season in order to reach the milestone of $200 million in total prizes. In the list of highest earners (based on prize money) of 2023, Carlos Alcaraz was second after Djokovic. The youngster earned $10.7 million throughout the year.
The Serb had a very memorable and successful season in 2023. He kicked off the season by winning the Adelaide International 1 and the 2023 Australian Open. He went on to win three Grand Slam titles in 2023, including the Australian Open, French Open and the US Open.
He was the runner-up of Wimbledon. Apart from that, the Serb also won the Paris Masters, Cincinnati Masters and the ATP Finals.
Novak Djokovic tops the list of Career Prize Money won in tennis
Serena Williams and Simona Halep are the only two women on the list of top ten career prize money winners. Djokovic will definitely reach the $200 million mark if he continues to play in the same manner in 2024. Seeing the fitness of the Serb, it can be easily assumed that he will be able to compete at the top for at least two more years.
Alexander Zverev, on the other hand, is the only next-gen player on this list and has a long way to go in his career as well. He is 26 years old and will definitely rise up the ranks by the time he retires.
