Novak Djokovic to become first man to win $100 million in prize money

World number one tennis player Novak Djokovic will soon become the first man to win $100 million in prize money. Djokovic, chasing a first Roland Garros title to complete a career Grand Slam, tackles Spain`s 14th seed Roberto Bautista Agut.

Roger Federer is Djokovic’s closest rival in the prize money stakes on $98,011,727 but the Swiss is sitting out Roland Garros through injury.

“I know that the top four guys (himself, Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray) that have been dominating the tour and winning most of the major titles in the last ten years or so will not stay there forever,” cautioned Djokovic.

"New generations are coming up, and you can see already guys like Dominic Thiem, Borna Coric, Nick Kyrgios establishing themselves in the very top of the men`s game.”

"Can definitely expect to see those faces more in the future. How quick they can actually get to the top four of the world, it`s a process. It`s not like that`s going to happen overnight or over two, three months.”

"They need to play very well and consistently well and stay healthy throughout the entire year in order to challenge the top spots. Let`s see if they can do that."
