Grigor Dimitrov’s millions announced – Tennis

News site Stacker.com ranks the 25 richest tennis players in history, citing data from the ATP Tour. Below No. 19 in the ranking is also Grigor Dimitrov. Figures are current as of August 1, 2022.

Djokovic, Nadal and Federer have been the masters of the sport for years. No other player has won even half of each of them. Their $421 million (total) exceeds the earnings of the next 12 tennis players combined. They have won an astonishing 63 Grand Slams (Australian Open, Roland Garros, Wimbledon and US Open).

Several factors make comparisons challenging. First, the careers of some lasted much longer than others, allowing them to earn much more money. For example, Andy Roddick only played for 12 years, while Roger Federer was on the court for 24 years. Second, total earnings are not adjusted for inflation. For example, Stefan Edberg’s $20 million in the 1980s and 1990s is far more than John Isner’s $21 million since 2007.

“Dimitrov makes the list despite never having reached a Grand Slam final,” the publication wrote. He is on a streak of 46 consecutive appearances in Major tournaments. The 31-year-old competitor, 1.91 m tall, became the first Bulgarian player to qualify and win the ATP finals in 2017. He has 21,498,490 in prize pool winnings,” Stacker.com adds.

Following him in the ranking are John Isner (USA, #20) with $21,455,192, Ivan Lendl (Czech Republic, #21) – $21,262,417, Gael Monfils (Fr, #22) – $20,890,958, Lleyton Hewitt (Aval, no. 23) – $20,889,965, Andy Roddick (USA, #24) – $20,640,030 and Stefan Edberg (Sw, #25) – $20,613,441.
