Daniil Medvedev is making great strides forward in a special classification, not strictly sporting, but still pertinent to court results. Medvedev this week became the eleventh player in ATP history to surpass $30 million in prize money, with the top-10 behind, for which he must surpass Andre Agassi's $31.152975.
Numbers that give value to the excellent work he has done in recent years, but which also photograph the enormous domination implemented by the Big Three. It is no coincidence that Djokovic ($167,099,576), Rafael Nadal ($134,640,719) leads this ranking and Roger Federer ($130,594,339) closes the podium.
Behind them is fellow legend Andy Murray ($63,635,379). Further behind them we find other great champions such as Pete Sampras, Stan Wawrinka, Alexander Zverev.
Here is the full ranking
Novak Djokovic ($167,099,576) Rafael Nadal ($134,640,719).
Roger Federer ($130,594,339). Andy Murray ($63,635,379). Pete Sampras ($43,280,489). Stan Wawrinka ($35,757,325). Alexander Zverev ($33,671,581). David Ferrer ($31,483,911). Marin Cilic ($31,200,667). Andre Agassi ($31,152,975). Daniel Medvedev ($30,032,109).
Thomas Berdych ($29,491,328). Dominic Thiem ($29,487,951). Juan Martin del Potro ($25,896,046). Stefanos Tsitsipas ($25,141,768).
The Russian is establishing himself in this 2023 as one of the most fit tennis players.
In 2022 the Russian experienced a season not to his full potential, so much so that he slipped beyond tenth place. An oddity for a tennis player who was able to inflict a 3-0 on Novak Djokovic in the final at the 2021 US Open, preventing him from completing the Calendar Grand Slam.
The 27-year-old seems to have rediscovered the polish of his best days, lining up 4 tournaments (Rotterdam, Doha, Dubai, Miami). On the prestigious Monte-Carlo court, the first major event of the European clay court season, Daniil stopped in the quarterfinals beaten by the finalist of the tournament Holger Rune, then beaten in turn by Andrey Rublev.
Medvedev by virtue of these large numbers, is first in the standings in the Race towards the Finals in Turin, a competition which as usual will take place at the end of the season, from 12 to 19 November. The Russian also precedes Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner.
