Novak Djokovic

Although a bit slack at the end of the season, but Novak Djokovic still managed to record as a tennis player who ever earn prize money in one season. World No. 1 is able to collect prize money of $ 12,619,803 this season. This acquisition exceeds the $ 10.1 million earned by Rafael Nadal last year and by Federer in 2007.

Djokovic this week collected an additional $1.6 million in bonus prize money following a season in which he won 10 titles, including three Grand Slam crowns – Australia, Wimbledon and US Open – and a record five ATP World Tour Masters 1000 titles, although he failed in Barclay ATP World Tour Finals..

The 24-year-old Serbian moved ahead of Andre Agassi to No. 4 on the list of career prize money leaders, with $32.8 million in earnings to the American’s $31.1 million.

Federer, who holds the record for career prize money earnings with $67.4 million, made $6,369,576 this season. Meanwhile, Rafael Nadal earned $7,668,214 to take his career total to $45 million, surpassing Pete Sampras’ prize money haul of $43.2 million.

Is this achievement can be retained for next season? We’ll wait.
