Richest Tennis Player In The World

Published on March 31 2014

The enviable title goes to Roger Federer with an estimated net worth of $180 million. In the court, he is regarded as one of the greatest players of his generation. He has racked up quite a number of records including the most Grand Slam wins that totals to an impressive 17. Between 2005 and 2010, Federer had appeared in 18 out of 19 Grand Slam finals, which is quite an amazing feat.

His brilliance on the court has seen him sign major endorsement deals. His deal with Nike is one of the biggest in sports history because it runs for ten years and is worth approximately $10 million a year. His endorsement portfolio is regarded as one of the most impressive in recent history. This is characterized by the nature of the deals, quality of sponsors and even the duration of the contracts, which are some of the longest. This signifies the faith his sponsors have placed on him despite the bad press that professional sports has been receiving of late.

Apart from endorsements, Federer also makes money through appearance fees and prize money. The 32-year-old Swiss shows no signs of slowing down in his dominance of the clay court and we expect to see more from him in the future.
