Novak Djokovic's picking and choosing during this season in terms of tournaments has paid off as he has won nearly all tournaments he has entered into and as a result becomes the highest prize money earner in 2023 despite only playing 12 tournaments.
In both singles and doubles, Djokovic earned $15,952,044 despite playing the fewest tournaments of any player inside the top 10. He earned more than Carlos Alcaraz and Daniil Medvedev who in the end played often when Djokovic decided to take time away like in Asia.

As well as outperforming WTA World No.1, Iga Swiatek despite her dominance. Alcaraz is the only other player to reach eight figures this season, but Djokovic's seven titles including becoming the first player to win three out of four Grand Slams in a season on four occasions held the key.
As well as winning the second largest paycheck in tennis history at the ATP Finals by sealing a record-breaking 7th title in the end. A 55-6 record this season for Djokovic including 19 matches in a row between Wimbledon and the ATP Finals and also becoming the first player to earn over $180m.
Djokovic has been breaking records left right and centre even more so in the twilight of his career and continues to do so in 2023 as he enters another season hoping to repeat the feat but also add the elusive gold medal piece he is missing and the Calendar Grand Slam.
