Djoko to hit $100mn

sports Updated: May 31, 2016 09:15 IST

PARIS: World number one Novak Djokovic is poised to become the first man to win $100 million (Rs671cr) in prize money on Monday when he targets a place in the French Open quarterfinals for the 10th time.

With $99,673,404 (Rs669cr) banked in prize money at the start of Roland Garros, the 29-year-old Djokovic can cross the $100 million barrier by making the last-eight.

A place in the quarter-finals is worth 294,000 euros (Rs2.1cr) and that will just take the Serb into the $100,000,000 bracket.

Roger Federer is Djokovic’s closest rival on $98,011,727 (Rs658cr) but the Swiss is sitting out Roland Garros through injury.
