Rafael Nadal surpasses Roger Federer in career prize money after 14th Roland Garros title
The Spaniard passes the Swiss for No. 2 on the all-time career prize money list, now trailing only Novak Djokovic. Meanwhile, Marin Cilic also hits a big prize money milestone.
Published Jun 07, 2022
Rafael Nadal’s triumphant two weeks in Paris didn’t just earn him a record-extending 14th Roland Garros title or a record-extending 22nd Grand Slam title—it also added 2.2 million Euros, or approximately $2.34 million, to his ever-growing career prize money total.
And with that new chunk of change, Nadal not only surpasses $130 million in career prize money, he also moves past Roger Federer for second place on the all-time list.
He had $128,337,592 in career prize money going into Roland Garros.
ATP ALL-TIME CAREER PRIZE MONEY LEADERS (as of June 6th, 2022)

In Paris, Cilic became just the fifth active man to reach the semifinals or better at all four majors, alongside Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray.
