130 million dollars for Federer from Nike

Just read it in the Swiss news, Federer got a 130 million dollar contract with Nike. They talk about him playing well over his 30th birthday as part of the contract, but never mention an exact year or contract length.

Re: 130 million dollars for Federer from Nike

so you really think federer is gonna play til 35 or something? i don't think there's much truth to that article. what if he wins in beijing and equals pete's record this year (which is more than possible)? you think he'll play another 10 years (!!)?

nah, this just won't work. plus roger's not worth that much, as harsh as it may sound; he doesn't reach half as many people as agassi has during his days.

Roger said, several times, loud and clear, that the Olympics in London is his goal, that's 2012, he'll be 31.

I don't know actually... Nike knows Federer will probably end his career as the best sportsman ever... Agassi's not even in the top 5 in his specific sport... They won't be in the league

Yeah I mean federer's like... swiss you know...

More seriously, I doubt Nike would be paying him more than Agassi if he wasn't worth more to them, they're not really big on spending more money than necessary

You talk as if you did a poll, believe me u r plain wrong......the guy has a huge following, Many people who hardly followed tennis b/w 95-2004 are watching again...I am telling this based on my friends community and my family.....because they want to know wats all this fuss abt a guy named roger federer.....His fan site alone has 153,000+ registered members....

ROGER FEDERER
