The Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic is currently ranked third in the world for men’s singles tennis.
This year, he is competing at Wimbledon in a bid to win his 21st Grand Slam title – a feat that would see him surpass Roger Federer.
Despite indisputably being one of the greatest tennis players to have ever lived, his relationship with the public has always been fraught.
As crowds eagerly watch on to see if Djokovic, the defending champion, will win Wimbledon again this year, many are curious as to how much this sportsman is worth.
What Is Novak Djokovic’s Net Worth?
As of 2022, Novak Djokovic has an estimated net worth of $220 million (over £180,500,000), according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Considering the success and wealth that the 6ft 2 tennis star enjoys today, it can be hard to imagine the stark contrast of his humble origins.
Growing up in war-torn Serbia (formerly known as Yugoslavia), Djokovic used to stay with his granddad while his parents worked two jobs.
During the day they were skiing instructors and by night they worked at the pizza restaurant they owned.
Djokovic first got into tennis aged just four years old, when his parents bought him his first racquet.
It did not take long for his talents to shine through, and his determination meant that ten years later he was winning the European Junior Tennis Championships.
Now aged 35, he has become a household name. Nevertheless, this has not come without its controversies.
Earlier this year, there was a large upset as he was banned from playing at the Australian Open due to his refusal to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
The decision went back and forth for a while, aggravating Djokovic and his die-hard fans.
Meanwhile, many Australians and tennis fans worldwide were vocal in their condemnation of the player and his anti-vaccine stance.
This year, he is a firm favourite for the Wimbledon title.
He made it through the first round against Kwon Soon-woo without any major difficulties, but on the iconic grass court, anything can happen.
