Jannik Sinner has stocked up on titles and records in 2022, one of which is certainly a rich milestone. The 22-year-old Italian is the tennis player who earned the most in the first six months of 2024, in terms of Prize Money. The victories and extraordinary results have allowed the number 1 in the ATP ranking to earn $5.35 million US dollars in the first six months of 2024.

A data that allows Sinner to move away from all his colleagues at the top of the Prize Money Ranking, which exclusively considers the cash prizes acquired by tennis players based on the results in the various tournaments played. An important haul for the Italian boy, the result of four high-level victories at the Australian Open, at the Masters 1000 in Miami, at the ATP 500 in Rotterdam and the last one obtained at the ATP 500 in Halle, to which are added the semi-finals at Roland Garros and Monte Carlo.

The gap between Sinner and other tennis players is quite clear, given that in this special ranking he is followed by Alexander Zverev, who earned $4.63 million. Carlos Alcaraz then follows at $4.56 million. Novak Djokovic is stuck at $1.85 million.

The tennis season has reached the halfway point and taking the first conclusions, one can only underline that one of the protagonists (in men's tennis) is undoubtedly the Italian Jannik Sinner. 1st position in the world ranking achieved a few weeks ago, 1st place in the Race to Turin and tennis player with the most singles titles (4), at least two more than any other player. We recall Sinner will be one of the main favorite for the final win at the Wimbledon Championships, Major which will start on 1st July.
