Thanks to his performance at 500-level events in 2023, Daniil Medvedev is $600,000 richer.
The World No.3, who lost to Jannik Sinner in Sunday’s Vienna final and also won titles at Dubai and Rotterdam earlier this season, gets the lion’s share of the ATP’s $1.3 million bonus pool. The remainder of the money will be shared equally among the players who placed second through fifth – Carlos Alcaraz, Sinner, Alexander Zverev and Alex de Minaur.
If you’re scoring at home, Medvedev has earned $8,090,127 in prize money in addition to the bonus in 2023.
Per the ATP, as part of ATP’s OneVision strategy, the bonus pool distributes $1.3 million to eligible players who earned the most Pepperstone ATP Rankings points at the ATP 500 level, which comprises 13 events.
To be eligible to qualify a player must participate in at least four 500 events, including one after the US Open.
The ATP also has a Masters 1000 bonus pool, which will distribute $20 million to the Top 30 eligible players, based on Pepperstone ATP Rankings points earned at the nine ATP Masters 1000 tournaments and Nitto ATP Finals. Medvedev currently sits second in the bonus pool, just 90 points behind Alcaraz.
