WORLD NUMBER ONE Novak Djokovic was made to sweat by Roberto Bautista Agut at the French Open today before eventually advancing in four sets.

The win not only put Djokovic into the quarter-finals at Roland-Garros for the ninth time as he looks for his first win, it also made him the first tennis player to eclipse $100 million in career earnings.

By moving into the quarters, Djoker is guaranteed at least a $329,00 share of the purse, moving his career earnings to $100,001,707.

Roger Federer ($98.0 million) and Rafael Nadal ($78.2 million), are the only other players to have won at least $50 million.

Serena Williams tops the women’s chart with $76.5 million in career earnings on the WTA Tour.
