Sunday’s victory marked career Grand Slam title No. 21 as well, which is the second most of all time behind only Nadal’s 22.
The winner of the Centre Court match will receive a cool £ 2 million. A fairly sizeable increase on the £1.7m Djokovic himself scooped last time out in 2021.

Fourth round: £190,000
Third round: £120,000
Second round: £78,000
First round: £50,000
Now, Djokovic is back on top of his game, and he will begin preparations for the 2022 U.S. Open, which will take place in late August and early September in New York City.
If Djokovic can win it all in the Big Apple, he will tie Nadal for the most Grand Slam men’s singles titles in tennis history.
