A success that weighs not only in the world rankings, but also for the wallet.

Jannik Sinner took the National Bank Open in Toronto, thus winning the first Masters 1000 of his career at the age of 22 yet to be accomplished. This success gave him a chance to savor his all-time best ranking in the ATP world circuit rankings, but not only that. The victory in Canada also gave him a monetary reward that was anything but insignificant.

In fact, the Toronto success enabled Sinner to collect some $1.019 million. A remarkable sum, which at today’s exchange rate is equivalent to 929,668 euros. With his popularity and an increasingly top world ranking, therefore, the bank account of the South Tyrolean outfielder also continue their exponential growth. In fact, the Italian player has already earned some $10.66 million in prizes since his debut. Of these, moreover, as many as four have come in the first eight (and a half) months of 2023.

“This is a great achievement, which I want to share with all the people on my team. We are working hard and these results give us courage and make us want to work even harder. In this tournament I have always kept the right behavior on the court, facing all the matches played well and with great concentration. Today I felt some pressure but I was good at handling it,” Sinner said hot on the heels of his victory over Alex De Minaur in Toronto. His first career Masters 1000 enabled him to climb to the No. 6 position in the ATP rankings for the first time.
