Jannik Sinner is the main man in men’s tennis right now. The Italian star won his first-ever Grand Slam title at the Australian Open 2024 and is now unbeaten in his last 15 matches. The 22-year-old followed up on his Grand Slam win, by claiming the Rotterdam Open title. However, it seems that after the win, he has courted controversy and this is due to the way he looks at money.

Jannik Sinner has made $19,579,723 in prize money so far in his career. Also, this includes the $2,536,288 he has made in 2024 alone. Along with earning money on tennis court, the Italian is also sought after in the brand market. Sinner has already signed multi-million dollar deals with Nike, Gucci and Alfa Romeo. Recently, the Italian was talking about his respect for money and how he chooses to spend his hard earned money wisely.

Talking to Vanity Fair, Jannik Sinner admitted that he always checks the price of a product before buying anything. The Italian clarified that he is not stingy but he respects money a lot. The 22-year-old admitted that he works for the money and does not like to waste it. Sinner further added that he only has one car, the Alfa Romeo and has not yet brought any other car.

“Before buying something I always look at the price, always. If I go to a restaurant and the pasta with meat sauce costs much more than the one with tomato sauce, I take the one with tomato sauce. Not because I’m stingy, but because I respect money. The only gift I gave myself is the car (Alfa Romeo Stelvio Q4 Veloce). It’s a nice car, but you don’t think of a Ferrari, a Lamborghini or a Maserati.”
