Tennis legend Roger Federer rips the combined annual earnings of endorsements of Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic by $10 million.The Swiss Maestro said goodbye to Nike in 2018, signing a million-dollar contract with UNIQLO, worth around $300 million for ten years.
$30 million each year.In the contract with UNIQLO, Federer has a clause where he gets this money even if he stops playing tennis. In fact, Roger definitively retired in 2022, at the Laver Cup.Both Nadal and Djokovic make around $10 million each year from their deals with their respective technical sponsors, Nike and Lacoste, but even combining their earnings, the Spaniard and the Serb don’t reach the out-of-this-world figure that Federer makes.For example, in 2020, Federer’s total earnings exceeded $106 million, of which just $6 million came from tournament winnings.
Federer is also an ambassador for luxury brands Rolex, Louis Vuitton and Switzerland Tourism.We recall Nadal is an ambassador for Santander, Emporio Armani, Babolat, Richard Mille, with an estimated net worth of around $220 million.
Djokovic has agreements with Lacoste, Head, Asics, Hublot, Raiffeisen Bank.

When we talk about Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic we are talking about the history of tennis.
The Big 3 are the ones who changed the history of the sport, 65 Grand Slam titles in three and a string of records that would leave any fan in awe.Like all good things, unfortunately these often come to an end: Roger Federer officially said goodbye last year, the retirement came in the Laver Cup where the three, and especially Rafa and Roger, were protagonists of one last great day.Nadal, on the other hand, has been out for months due to an injury, but his return to the field is even expected in 2024 and nobody knows in what condition he will return.
The only survivor of the Big Three is currently Novak Djokovic, a tennis player who still fights at the top of the circuit today.23 Grand Slam titles and a career that he doesn’t seem to have any intention of interrupting.
Just returning to last year’s Laver Cup, the three champions once again made the news.Photographer Ella Ling was awarded the first ITPA for Sony’s photo of the year for her shot of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal holding hands at the Laver Cup, an iconic shot as Roger officially bid farewell to the world of tennis.She shared the news of the award via her Twitter channels: “I am very grateful to have been awarded ITPA Sony Photo of the Year.”Canadian tennis player Eugenie Bouchard also commented on Ella Ling’s photo on social media and defined it as the best tennis photo of all time.Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal were great rivals but over the years they have cultivated a sincere and truly pure relationship, a relationship that all fans love and respect.
