Top 10: highest TV money earners in Europe (1)

Published 3 years ago Add your comment

More often that not we are told that TV is ruining football, that the influx of money into the game has changed it beyond on all recognition - and there's no denying that is the case.

Wages and transfer fees have gone through the roof along with ticket prices, foreign players are prevalent, kick-off times are all over the place and clubs have turned into commercial entities rather than a beloved cornerstones of the community. Damn you to hell, Sky.

But ask yourself this; how much does your club actually earn from television every year?

Financial body Deloitte have gone someway to answering that very question by looking at how much the top ten clubs in Europe generated in TV revenue at home and abroad.

Each country has it's own distinctive TV rights deal so the figures aren't necessarily comparable; for example the Premier League deal with Sky and BT Sport is the most expensive but Barcelona and Real Madrid earn more than the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea because the La Liga deal is worked out on an individual basis rather than distributed evenly.

But what this table does represent is just how important TV revenue is in the modern game.

Novak Djokovic becomes all time No

Novak Djokovic becomes all time No.1 prize money earner in Tennis World

This is just a one more feat achieved by this tennis star as he keeps on breaking and making records on the tennis court.

On Sunday Novak Djokovic became the all-time No. 1 prize money earner in the tennis world. After beating Kei Nishikori 6-3 6-3.

With this win, he equaled a world record of winning Miami Open crown sixth time in his career.

In 2007, he won the Miami Open first time and then continued winning it in 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2015 and now the sixth time in 2016.

His prize money amounts to $1,028,300 for his win against Kei. This way his total prize money has mounted up to $98.2 million next to Roger Federer’s $97.9 million.

It took him one hour and 26 minutes to defeat his Japanese opponent on Sunday. By his this win at the Crandon Park Tennis Center, he is now on par with Agassi’s amazing tennis career at the Masters 1000 event.

“I have a very special connection to this tournament,” Djokovic said on the court while picking his winning check for $1.02 million.

“Back in 2007 at Miami it was the biggest tournament that I had won,” the World No.1 continued. “It has been a springboard for everything that has come after that,” he added.

With this amazing win against World No.6 Nishikori, he has made one more record of maintaining his back to back winning streak at Indian Wells and Miami open for last three years.

In 2016, his only defeat has come at the hands of Feliciano Lopez in Dubai that too when eye infections forced him to leave the court.

It was indeed a very tough Job for Nishikori to defeat Djokovic, the guy who is in such a tremendous form this time.

Though he tried his best and initially broke his opponent twice but could not maintain his streak and eventually lost first set in 34 minutes.

“It was a tough match. He was very patient and he didn’t miss. Playing Novak is always a great challenge for me,” he said in the post-match ceremony.

While patting his hand as a part of victory celebrations, this 11 times Grand Slam winner said: “I certainly hope the love affair continues in the years to come.”

Novak Djokovic one title away from smashing through $US100 million prize money barrier

Djokovic set to smash through $US100 million prize money barrier

Novak Djokovic is one title - or five days - away from becoming the first tennis star to smash the $US100 million prize money barrier.

Djokovic's domination in 2016 has helped the Serb surge ahead of Roger Federer on the list of the sport's highest on-court earners and to within $US727,657 of the magical mark.

If he successfully defends his Rome crown this week to collect a fifth trophy in the Italian capital - and sixth title this season - the world No.1 will crack $100 million, a feat only Federer has come close to managing.

The Swiss superstar has earned $US97,958,429 in prize money during his 17-year, 17-slam career, compared to Djokovic's $US99,272,343.

Djokovic queries Tomic's commitment

If Djokovic is to achieve the financial milestone this week, the 28-year-old may have to topple his big-three rivals - Rafael Nadal, Federer and Andy Murray - in successive matches in the quarter-finals, semis and final to do so.

After enjoying a first-round bye, the top seed opens his campaign against French qualifier Stephane Robert.

To beat Djokovic to the $US100 million mark, the second-ranked Federer, who has played just three matches since the Australian Open due to knee and back issues, would likely need to reign in Rome and reach the final - at least - at Roland Garros.

But even then, Djokovic would have to suffer an injury or early exits from both prestigious claycourt events.

Federer, though, remains the undoubted financial king of tennis as he closes in on becoming the sport's first-ever billion-dollar earner.

Backed by blue-chip sponsors including Nike, Rolex, Credit Suisse, Mercedes-Benz, Lindt and Moet & Chandon, Federer has been tennis's highest earner for nine years in a row, with Forbes estimating he raked in $US67 million in 2014-15.

On court, the prize money on offer these days to tennis's elite is mind-boggling.

Australia's first-ever world No.1 John Newcombe, a seven-times grand slam champion who topped the rankings in 1974, by comparison earned just $US1,062,408 ($A1.44 million) in prize money.

Pat Rafter, world No.1 for a week in 1999, made $US11,133,128 ($A15.12 million), in on-court earnings, while Lleyton Hewitt, who topped the rankings for a total of 80 weeks, amassed $US20,777,859 ($A28.22 million)

Three women - Serena and Venus Williams and Maria Sharapova - feature in the top-10 all-time prize money earners in tennis.

Serena comes in fourth overall with $US75,929,696 in on-court riches.


1. Novak Djokovic - $US99,272,343 ($A134.84 million)

2. Roger Federer - $US97,958,429 ($A133.05 million)

3. Rafael Nadal - $US78,007,139 ($A106.02 million)

4. Serena Williams - $US75,929,696 ($A103.20 million)

5. Andy Murray - $US44,339,508 ($A60.26 million)

6. Pete Sampras - $US43,280,489 ($A58.79 million)

7. Maria Sharapova - $US36,766,149 ($A49.94 million)

8. Venus Williams - $US32,798,0368 ($A445.47 million)

9. Andre Agassi - $US31,152,975 ($A42.31 million)

10. David Ferrer - $US28,839,132 ($A39.17 million)
