Sinner Crosses $20 Million Mark In Career Prize Money With Miami Semifinal Run

Jannik Sinner is not only one of the most successful Italian tennis players of all time, but he is officially the wealthiest, thanks to his on-court success.

In January, Sinner became the first Italian, male or female, to win the Australian Open. It was his first Grand Slam triumph, which included two astonishing wins over Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev.

With his status as a national hero secured, Sinner met the country's prime minister and president when he returned to Italy. A proper coronation ensued, in which his Davis Cup teammates were in attendance.

Sinner also played a pivotal role in ending Italy's long drought for a Davis Cup title last November. This season, he rose to a new career-high of World No. 3, surpassing Adriano Pannata's previous best ranking.

Pannata was the yardstick in many records, of which Sinner is now the proud holder. The 73-year-old was a harsh critic of Sinner's choices and decision-making in the past but has been full of praise for the 22-year-old's groundbreaking success this season.

Sinner is currently the leader of the ATP race, which accounts for points earned in the current season. He is also set to replace Novak Djokovic on top of the Olympics race next week.

Another table that Sinner has topped since leaving Melbourne is the prize money list for the current season. He has amassed $2,861,288 in 2024 so far (excluding Miami Open).

With his run to the semifinal of the Miami Masters, Sinner is guaranteed a paycheck worth $325,000. This will take his career earnings past the $20 million mark regardless of the final result in his match against Daniil Medvedev.

Sinnr will climb above Goran Ivanisevic and could eclipse Stefan Edberg for a spot in the Top 30 in the all-time list should he progress into the final. Last year, he lost to Medvedev in the final, but he will get a chance to exact revenge on Friday.
