Roger Federer To Pass Novak Djokovic As Top Prize Money Earner

Roger Federer is set to regain top status in the prize money stakes by overtaking Novak Djokovic to become the first tennis player to win $110 million.

Djokovic, a 12-time major winner and former world No. 1, became the first player to earn $100 million in prize money in June 2016.

Although the Serb currently leads the all-time prize money list with close to $110 million, Federer’s oustanding 2017 season, during which he won six titles, including two majors, means he’s within touching distance.

Here’s a look at the Top 10 biggest earners in tennis (in terms of career prize money, not adjusted for inflation):

  1. Novak Djokovic $109,805,403
  2. Roger Federer   $109,387,410
  3. Rafael Nadal      $91,199,322
  4. Andy Murray     $60,807,644
  5. Pete Sampras     $43,280,489
  6. Andre Agassi      $31,152,975
  7. David Ferrer       $30,760,436
  8. Stan Wawrinka  $30,623,544
  9. Tomas Berdych $28,220,153
  10. Boris Becker      $25,080,956   (Source: ATP World Tour)
