Djokovic made his first big break at the young age of 20 when he disrupted Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal’s winning streak of 11 consecutive majors to win his first Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in 2008.
Since then, Djokovic has proved he is more than just a wild card and has been ranked number 1 in the world for an impressive total of 373 weeks.
With yet another win on the horizon for Djokovic and a successful career spanning most of his early adulthood, tennis fans across the globe have been wondering just how much the player is worth in 2022.
What Is Novak Djokovic’s Net Worth In 2022?
As of 2022, Novak Djokovic has an estimated net worth of $220 million (£182 million), according to CelebrityNetWorth.
Djokovic is by far one of the greatest tennis players of the 21st century, being the only male player to ever have won all nine Masters 1000 Tournaments.
In 2016, he also became the first ever player to hold all four major titles on three different surfaces.
The player is also a popular celebrity ambassador for a number of well-known sports brands.
In 2012, Djokovic signed a five year brand deal with Uniqlo, which was reportedly worth 8 million euros per year.
He has also signed brand deals with Mercedes-Benz and Seiko, and later terminated his contract with Uniqlo to become a Lacoste ambassador in 2017.
This has no doubt proved a massive boost to Djokovic’s income, as between June 2017 - June 2018, he earned a whopping $50 million from both his salary and endorsements.
Although Djokovic’s previous Wimbledon win in 2019 saw his total career earnings peak at an impressive $133 million (£110 million), most of his current earnings come from his brand deals rather than his tennis wins.
His ongoing contract with Lacoste is reportedly worth $9.4 million (£7.8 million) a year alone!
If Djokovic is successful at the Wimbledon 2022 finals this afternoon, he could be taking away a further £2 million as a winning prize.
This is a mighty increase from last year’s Wimbledon prize of £1.7 million, which was collected by both Djokovic and Ash Barty.
