These days the Davis Cup Final Four is being played, but the official season ended a few days ago with the victory of Serbian champion Novak Djokovic in the ATP Finals. Thanks to that success, Nole collected the most money ever won in a tennis tournament, and despite the season being played in the middle, he was the highest-earning tennis player this season.
Nearly $10 million in five tournaments, certainly a fantastic season in terms of earnings with Nole cashing precisely $9 million, $934,582. It was an extraordinary season in which Djokovic won the ATP Finals in Turin and Wimbledon, while missing the Australian Open and US Open and a few Masters 1000s of the season.
Numbers that certify the incredible season of the Serbian champion, a season in between but that certified him as the one who earned the most money of all. Behind Nole, the highest ranked tennis player is «a tennis player», the world number one Iga Swiatek.
Prize money for men and women is no longer different and women almost always earn the same as men. Iga is the tennis player who earns the most this season, behind Nole, with 9 million 875 thousandths and 525 dollars. In third place in this special classification is the Spanish Carlos Alcaraz, the youngest world number one in history.
Alcaraz won five tournaments in all categories and ended the season by winning the US Open, his first Grand Slam title. Rafael Nadal is the tennis player who has won the most Slams this season, two titles such as the Australian Open and Roland Garros, and yet he is not on the podium, due to the various injuries that have hindered the second half of the season.
Rusedski opens up about Djokovic
Novak Djokovic won his 21st Grand Slam at Wimbledon this year, placing him one Major behind the men’s leader Rafael Nadal. “I mean, let’s not forget that Martina Navratilova won her last Wimbledon title at 39, so I see Novak out there if she’s healthy for another four or five years, so imagine how many more Slams she’ll have under her belt.
I don’t think he wants to get the men’s record, I think he wants to get the all-time record. Margaret Court 24. Serena 23, wants to be 25,» Greg Rusedski said while speaking to Prime Video. «Well, I see Djokovic winning at least two Majors next year,» the retired British pro told Prime Video. «I see Rafa the French winning and Alcaraz possibly defending his US Open title.”
