A total of 140 million dollars is not to be joked about but shows the player’s proximity and tells us a lot about the player’s credibility and capability as a whole. His win-loss record is also something to be considered, as he will be nearing 1000 wins sooner rather than later and has only lost about 195 times. He has a win percentage of 83%, which is something virtually unheard of. Ironically and coincidentally, the number of career titles he has is also eighty-three. Let’s take his stats for this year into account. He already has two titles to his name and has earned over two million dollars as prize money.

Talking about the game’s greats, he has shared an epic rivalry with Rafael Nadal, which continued yesterday. It was a great contest in the semi-finals of the French Open, also known as Roland Garros. Djokovic beat Nadal to enter the finals in four sets. Djokovic was provided with a tough fight from Nadal,as fell down in the first set itself and had to mount a comeback. But he overcame him and is all set to win the Roland Garros again. He has beaten Nadal over thirty times and has lost to him twenty-eight times.

Djokovic is still at the peak of his career and will continue his blistering form in future tournaments, notably the upcoming Wimbledon. It is fair to say that he’ll be able to earn more than 150 million dollars solely from simply magnificent prize money.
