The Russian tennis player Daniil Medvedev, who will play in the final of the ATP tournament in Vienna in a few hours, is dominating his colleagues in terms of earnings obtained from the ATP 500 events.

In fact, the strong Russian tennis player is the tennis player who has earned the most ahead of Carlos Alcaraz.

Medvedev in fact took advantage of the absence of Carlos Alcaraz in Basel to win the matches he needed in Vienna and overtake his young Spanish rival in terms of prize money won this season in this category of tournaments.

At the end of the year, as regards the ATP 500, Medvedev will earn at least 600,000 dollars, an amount that exceeds what the finalist of the Paris Rolex Masters tournament will earn and more than what a tennis player who reaches a quarter-final in a tournament in the Grand Slam.

After Medvedev, as mentioned, there is Alcaraz, who could be joined by Jannik Sinner if he were to win in Vienna. Alexander Zverev, Alex de Minaur and Andrey Rublev follow. We recall the ATP 500 played in the season were: Rotterdam, Rio de Janeiro, Dubai, Acapulco, Barcelona, Queen's, Halle, Hamburg, Washington, Beijing, Tokyo, Vienna and Basel.

Today the Russian will face Jannik Sinner in the final of the ATP event in Vienna. Medvedev leads the head-to-head 6-1 against the Italian, despite Sinner beat him in the last meeting, in China, where he played a very amazing match against his nightmare opponent.

Here is the current ranking of prize money earnings for the ATP 500:

Daniil Medvedev: $600k
Carlos Alcaraz: $300k
Jannik Sinner: $200k
Alexander Zverev $125k
