NOVAK DJOKOVIC CAPPED a dominating 2015 season with a win at the Barclays World Tour Finals in London this weekend. To get a sense of just how dominating Djoker was this year, we need look only at how much money he made on the ATP Tour.

Djokovic finished the year with $21.6 million in winnings on the Tour, nearly $5m more than the next two men’s tennis players combined, Roger Federer and Andy Murray. But perhaps more impressive is that the ATP Tour tournaments this season handed out $151.4m to over 3,500 players in singles events, and Djokovic won 14% of that money.

Here are the top 20 players prize money leaders on the Tour this season. There was Djokovic and there was everybody else.
