Djokovic's gold mine: Serb has earned nearly 20 million dollars and 13,000 points at the ATP Finals

Novak Djokovic did not play on Monday at the Alpitour in Turin, but he still received a round of applause from the stands.

This time it was because he collected the trophy from the hands of Andrea Gaudenzi, president of the ATP, which certifies him as the number one tennis player at the end of the year for the eighth season. It is one more of his many records.

Djokovic has seen the ATP Finals as a virtual gold mine. Throughout his career, since his debut in 2007, when the venue was the majestic Qi Zhong in Shanghai, he has accumulated 19,686,050 dollars and a total of 13,000 points.

That has been enough to win the tournament six times, the same as Roger Federer, with whom he could break the tie if he is crowned champion this Sunday in Turin.

The Serbian star has won the Masters event four times without losing a single match. He did it in the 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2022 editions.

With 47 matches won in the tournament, only Roger Federer beats him with 59. This Tuesday, in the green group, he will play against the local idol Jannik Sinner with the winner going to the semi-final.

Djokovic's team work across multiple languages

Djokovic has a lot of different voices in his ear. During matches he receives instructions in four different languages. On one side is Croatian Goran Ivanisevic, one of his two coaches.

Ivanisevic's work is complemented by Carlos Gomez-Herrera from Marbella. The latter surprised by mixing his words in both Serbian and Spanish at the Paris-Bercy Masters 1000.

Milan Amanovic and Claudio Zimaglia are the two physiotherapists on the payroll of the best tennis player on the planet.

The first is Serbian and the second Italian, the same nationality of Marco Panichi, the physical trainer of 'Nole'.

The years don't appear to be slowing Djokovic down

Djokovic is not weighed down by his 36 years. The last six matches in which he has played all the sets have fallen in his favor. His last five-set loss was in the Wimbledon final to Carlos Alcaraz.

Four of his last five matches have gone to the wire and he always ended up raising his hands in triumph.
