Dominic Thiem and Roger Federer will face off today in the Madrid Open, as the quarter-finals commence. The Madrid Open concludes this weekend on Sunday, May 12, with the biggest names in tennis all vying for the champion title. World number one Novak Djokovic has automatically progressed to the semi-finals after opponent Marin Cilic was out-for-the-count with food poisoning. The world number 11 said: ”I have had a terrible night dealing with a case of food poisoning. I am extremely disappointed to have my time in Madrid end in this way. Thank you for the support.”
How much is Dominic Thiem worth?
Dominic Thiem is currently world number five in tennis, with 13 career titles under his belt.
His wins on the ATP tour in 2018 earned him close to £8.2 million ($11 million) in prize money.
This year he earned two titles, which in total netted him £1,649,433 ($2,149,673), putting a total net worth around £10 million.
Thiem also has a number of endorsements from major brands, including Adidas, Babolat, Rolex, Kia and Bank Austria, which adds an extra income.
This makes a total net worth difficult to estimate overall.
If he wins the top prize at the Madrid Open, he will add another significant amount to this sum.
The grand prize for the Madrid Open this year is £1,037,724.
Runners up at Madrid this year will take home £524,958 (€608,700), and each semi-finalist will gain £269,262 (€312,215).
The final eight are paid £138,781 (€160,920) and players in the third round will get £69,528 (€80,620) each.
Even those in the first and second round get a considerable payoff, with those who make the second leg earning £36,411 (€42,220), and those in the first leg on £17,080 (€19,805).
Thiem has now entered the quarter-finals, so will earn at least £138,781.
His most recent win was in straight sets against Fabio Fognini, and he now goes on to play Roger Federer.
In an interview with Tennis World, he said: ”It was a great match, he won Monte Carlo, I won Barcelona so it was a great matchup.
“We both had good chances to win that second set and at the end, I was more lucky so I am very happy.”
On the upcoming match, he said: “It’s such an honour to play Roger, you can learn so much.”
