    Ok...

    So Novak Djokovic just got 2 850 000$ for a total of 12,803,737 . Last week it was $9,953,737 .


    At the end of the season No1 player gets 2 000 000 dollars, if he plays all required masters 1000 tournaments (which Novak did play).

    http://www.atpworldtour.com/Corporate/Rulebook.aspx

    Here's a link to atp rulebook for more about that.


    Also, even if we count 500 000$ from US open series, which Novak got, and they didn't count it in his prize money... so even if we count that thats 2,5 mill .


    How and why did Novak got 2 850 000 dollars?

    No, that was already counted. For WTF Novak got 1 760 000, that was week before.


    2 weeks ago Novak had $8,193,737 , last week he had $9,953,737 . So thats 1 760 000 more. So it's not WTF.

    Regarding the US Series 500,000, it was counted in his prizemoney. He won 1,450,000 for his USO runner-up, but the runner-up prizemoney was actually 950,000

    So, if we add the 2 million at the end of the year, we're still 850K short. Lemme try finding some info. I find it strange as well.

    Suffice it to say he did well this year. Is the exact amount of that much interest to anyone other than him and his accountant??

    Uhm, maybe he also won prize money with his humanitarian award? Or maybe he's been named 'player of the year' by now as well? Or maybe he participated in some doubles events for which he won some money? Or Davis Cup?

    i know it's an ITF event and not an ATP one, but as i don't know what source you use for his prize money... maybe it's what he earned with the hopman cup ?

    2012 Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.
    Singles Prize Money
    There was a participation Fee of $130,000.

    Maybe there was a participation fee for Basel and for some other tournaments.

    Official or unofficial? Apparearance fees are not official prizemoney. Maybe the WTF is different.

    Could it maybe have something to do with him not being paid in US dollars at a lot of tournaments? Maybe based on when the figures above were factored in, the exchange rates had changed? Just a thought.

    This is probably it. It's the only thing that makes a little bit of sense.

    Doubles are already counted in his prize money, and btw, he won only around 3000$ in doubles. And he didn't play Davis Cup this year.

    participation fee is already counted in 1 760 000$ total.

    Abu Dhabi is not an ATP event, or ITF, it's an exibition tournament. And btw, for that he won 250k, so even if count that, we are still 100k short.

    No it's not that. Soon as players win some prize money in Euros, AUS$ or UK pounds, they are immediately converted in US dollars when new rankings come out.

    And second, if it was that, then he wouldn't be off by exactly 850k. It would be like 436 874$ if you understand what I'm saying. There is no way it could be round number.


    I can't believe no one knows the answer.

    He did won 1,45 mil in US open counting US bonus series, but they didn't count it, up until now I guess.

    On August 27th Novak had $6,023,741

    After US open, on September 10th, he had 6,972,425

    So they didn't count US open bonus series.

    It's not 850,000 in the end. We should get $12,803,737 (doubles included) from $12,453,737. It's 350,000 exactly. Where from?
