Sinner In Pole Position For Millions In Bonus Payments For 2024 Season

Sinner In Pole Position For Millions In Bonus Payments For 2024 Season

by Nurein Ahmed

Jannik Sinner is the best player in 2024, and this claim is fully justified by the points he has accumulated this season and the total prize money he has earned.

And for the second year in a row, the ATP has an extra incentive to award the Top 30 players with the most points from the nine Masters 1000 titles and the ATP Finals.

Through its OneVision plan, the best-performing ATP stars are targeting to win a share of the $20.5 million in the bonus pool. Last year, Carlos Alcaraz headed the list at the end of the season, earning over $4 million in bonus payments.

The Spaniard won two Masters titles (Indian Wells and Madrid) and was runner-up in Cincinnati. He also made the quarterfinals or better in two more tournaments (Toronto and ATP Finals).

This year, at the halfway mark of the 2024 season, Sinner is in the ascendancy to top the ATP bonus pool list. Five Masters tournaments have been played so far, and he has garnered the most points with 2000.

The Italian won his second Masters 1000 title in Miami and has reached the semifinals in Indian Wells and Monte Carlo. His last appearance was in Madrid, where he reached the quarterfinal but couldn't play because of a hip injury.

Sinner did not play in Rome, where he had the chance to increase his lead. Alexander Zverev sits in second place with 1800 points, with Daniil Medvedev and Alcaraz occupying the third and fourth spots, respectively.

With four more Masters and the ATP Finals still to be played, that list could have plenty of changes in the second half of the season. Additionally, players must meet the threshold of participating in all nine masters tournaments to receive 100% bonus payments.

Missing one or two Masters tournaments will significantly reduce the amount, as per the ATP rulebook. Not playing in over half of the events would result in forfeiting the bonus, as was the case with Novak Djokovic, who did not receive a single cent of the bonus from the ATP.
