In the men’s singles, Serbian tennis legend Novak Djokovic triumphed over Russian pro Daniil Medvedev on September 10, digging deep to redeem himself after losing to Medvedev in the 2021 US Open. He now has a record-equalling 24 Grand Slam titles to his name.

“It obviously means the world to me,” he said. “I’m really living my childhood dream to compete at the highest level in this sport, which has given me and my family so much from difficult circumstances. I never thought I would be here but the last couple of years I thought I had a shot at history. Why not grab it when it is presented?”

How much did the winners get paid in the 2023 US Open?

As the respective winners in the men’s and women’s singles categories, Djokovic and Gouff were both awarded prize money of $3 million USD. This brings Djokovic’s total career prize money to a staggering £175 million, according to Sportico, which places him at the top of the ranking, $40 million ahead of Rafael Nadal.

How much did the other players get paid?

The runners-up in the singles categories, Daniil Medvedev and Aryna Sabalenka, both received $350,000 for their performance in the US Open, while the semifinalists won $180,000 and the quarterfinalists were given $100,000.
