Novak Djokovic keeps making history.

With a 6-3, 7-6, 6-3 victory over Daniil Medvedev on Sunday, Djokovic won his fourth U.S. Open — first since 2018 — and 24th Grand Slam title, tying Margaret Court for the most in tennis history and extending his own men’s all-time record.

“I’m really living my childhood dream,” Djokovic said after the triumph. “I never imagined that I would be here standing with you talking about 24 Slams.”

Djokovic’s third major victory of the season earns him $3 million in prize money from a Grand-Slam-record $65 million prize pool, pushing his 2023 earnings to $10.6 million — and past Carlos Alcaraz ($9.3 million) for the top spot on the money list. As runner-up, Medvedev takes home $1.5 million, bumping his season earnings to $7.4 million.

Djokovic has now earned $175.3 million on the court in his career — by far more than any other player all time. The 36-year-old is also tennis’ highest-paid player, bringing in $38.4 million on and off the court in the past year, per Forbes latest rankings.

The Serbian all-time great receives one more feather in his cap, supplanting Alcaraz for the world No. 1 ranking. Djokovic has spent more time in the top spot (389 weeks) than any other men’s player all-time.
