Full extent of Djokovic's stunning financial loss due to Covid vaccine decision confirmed

Novak Djokovic didn't want to take the vaccine as a direct consequence, the Serbian missed several events which cost him some money in the process as well.

The latest events he missed are the Indian Wells Masters and the Miami Open and they are only two of the handful of masters he missed over the past two years. He missed wo Indian Wells events, two Miami Open, one Australian Open, one Canadian Masters, one Cincinnati Masters.

He would not have won all of those events but he would certainly make it to the latter stage of a few of them missing out on the prize money of $13.38m.

Check out the prize money of the events he missed in the past years due to not taking the vaccine:

Australian 2022 – $1.93m

Indian Wells 2022 – $1.23m

Miami 2022 – $1.23m

Canadian Open 2022 – $915,295

Cincinatti Masters 2022 – $970,020

US Open – $2.6m

Indian Wells 2023 – $1.26m

Miami 2023 – $1.26m

On top of missing out on all that prize money, Djokovic also missed out on a combined 11.000 ATP Ranking points. He didn't want to miss the Sunshine double but Eurosport analyst Mats Wilander believes it can be a blessing in disguise:

“He can be fresh for the clay-court season, he can be more fresh for the French Open. He’s already No. 1 in the world. He’s already broken all the records when it comes to No. 1. So what difference does it make if he wins another Indian Wells or Miami?

He doesn’t have to deal with the problem of confidence. Most players do. Novak Djokovic seems to not need a lot of confidence to just walk back into the circle of champions and start winning again.
