$12.6 million dollars.

That's how much World No. 1 Novak Djokovic won in prize money in 2011. His total is the highest in tennis history. Djokovic broke the all-time record by having one of the greatest seasons in history which included-- a 70-6 match record, 10 singles titles (including 3 Grand Slam titles) and a record 5 Master's 1000 titles in 2011-- and he became the undisputed World No. 1 player in the process.

Here are the 5 highest season prize money totals in tennis history--

1. Novak Djokovic (2011) - $12.6 million
2. Rafael Nadal (2010) - $10.1 million
3. Roger Federer (2007) - $10.1 million
4. Roger Federer (2009) - $8.8 million
5. Roger Federer (2006) - 8.3 million

Here are the 5 highest career totals--

1. Roger Federer - $67.4 million
2. Rafael Nadal - $45.0 million
3. Pete Sampras - $43.2 million
4. Novak Djokovic - $32.8 million
5. Andre Agassi - $31.1 million

I'd say that's a nice little piggy bank for Mr. Djokovic, so far....... And he's only 24!
