In singles and doubles, the Serbian brought in an incredible $15,952,044 in 2023. In addition to surpassing WTA No. 1 Iga Swiatek, Djokovic earned more prize money this season than players like Carlos Alcaraz and Daniil Medvedev.
This season, Alcaraz is the only other player to have reached an eight-figure total. As he won nearly every match he participated in, Djokovic had one of the best years in men’s tennis history. The most titles of any player, seven, including three Grand Slams, were won by him.
Djokovic is the first person to win four Grand Slams in a season and three of those victories coming from him. Nevertheless, Djokovic did not earn the highest salary in a single tournament at any of the Slams. Rather, he captured a 7th title that broke the record at the ATP Finals in Turin.
In the end, the 36-year-old defeated Jannik Sinner in straight sets to claim the title and $4,411,500 for his seven-day efforts. He defeated Roger Federer to win his career’s 71st hard court championship.
It is the second-largest single salary in ATP history, the prize money he won in Turin. After winning the US Open, French Open, and Australian Open, Djokovic took home seven figures in prize money. While he received £1,175,000 for finishing second at Wimbledon.
His record at the end of the 2023 season was 55-6. Between Wimbledon and the ATP Finals, he created the greatest winning streak on the ATP Tour this year, going 19 matches without losing until he fell to Sinner in the round-robin stage of the year-end championships.
Nine times in his career, Djokovic has won a prize pool of at least $10 million. He has become the first player to earn more than $180 million, further solidifying his domination in lifetime earnings.
