Default ATP Career Prize Money Leaders - Dec 09

Ten active players make the list of the top 40 ATP Career Prize Money Leaders as of December 28, 2009. Roger Federer is the #1 career prize money leader with $53.4 million dollars - $8.8 million of which was earned during the 2009 season. Rafael Nadal, the second highest earner during the 2009 season is #4 in the all time list with $27.2 million dollars in earnings. Novak Djokovic, the third highest earner for the season is ranked #13 overall. Other active players in the top 40 include Lleyton Hewitt (#11), Andy Roddick (#12), Nikolay Davydenko (#19), Juan Carlos Ferrero (#41), Andy Murray (#34), Tommy Haas (#35), and David Nalbandian (#36).

Some observations on the list:

- 32 players have won more than $10 million dollars in their careers
- Andy Murray, currently at #34 earned almost half of his career earnings in 2009. If he makes at least the same amount in 2010, he could be ranked within the top 20 by year-end.
- Who will enter the top 10 first: Andy Roddick or Novak Djokovic?
- Rafael Nadal may likely overtake Andre Agassi for the #3 spot by end of 2010, but it would take him 3 more $6M/year seasons to overtake Pete Sampras for #2
- Goran Ivanisevic and Michael Chang at #9 and #10 respectively are the highest players in the list never to have been ranked #1
- Jonas Bjorkman (#14) and Nikolay Davydenko (#19) are the only 2 players in the top 20 who have not won a Grand Slam singles title
- Two active players are most likely to join the top 40 list at the end of 2010. They are Fernando Gonzales (#42 - $8.4M) and Juan Martin del Potro (#62 - $6.7M). Gonzales earned $1.5 million for 2009 and del Potro earned $4.8 million for 2009

Moya is still active (playing Chennai next week) and deserves a mention. Moya ranks 18th overall. It would be nice if someone could come out with an inflation-adjusted list (or one that takes into accound rising prize money). I think the oldest player on the list is 57 year-old Jimmy Connors (#39).

I think when his career is said and done, Rogie will have made about $75 million in his tennis career.

Is the list singles prize money only, or does it include doubles winnings?

It includes doubles for Ivanisevic's total. I can confirm that cuz I checked out his stats on the ATP website.
