Djokovic sets ATP money mark with more than $10.6 million


Djokovic’s U.S. Open championship — his third Grand Slam title of the year — pushed his earnings past $10.6 million, more than anyone ever took home during a full season of men’s tennis, according to the Association of Tennis Proffesionals (ATP World Tour).

The only other men to come close were Rafael Nadal in 2010 and Roger Federer in 2007; they completed those years with a little less than $10.2 million.

By beating Nadal in the U.S. Open final Monday night, Djokovic got a check for $2.3 million: $1.8 million for winning the tournament, plus a $500,000 bonus for finishing second in the US Open Series Standings, which takes into account results at hard-court tuneup tournaments.
