Roger Federer Made $35 Million Last Year

Forbes has just released the new "Celebrity 100" list and Roger Federer has been placed #23 on the list because he made $35 million between June 2007 and June 2008.

Rafael Nadal surprisingly didn't make the list.

What do you all think? Does the $35 million for the last 12 months seem about right or a bit higher or lower than you would have thought?

I'm surprised Nadal didn't make the list because he is young, is the #2 and has a media friendly image.

it is normal for a sportman like fed, and you know tennis is increasing every day, new sponsors,media...:D and i guess they are not counting the guarantees from tournaments. :wavey:

Great for Federer. He deserves it..especially for his charity. Hopefully at least next season he will continue to make lots of money.

I'm not surprised about Nadal. He won the clay season (including the French). Came close at Wimby but after that Nadal didn't do so well. This year may be different for him. I think it also helps Federer because he speaks so many languages.

Volandri should be on the list as well.

I hope Mirka deposits 25% directly in her account. :)

So apparently Nadal didn't rack up enough media coverage to qualify for the top 100 though I would assume that between June 07' - June 08' that he probably made at least $15 million.

David Nalbandian would be number 1 on this list, he just spent all of his money on mcdonalds.

Your yearly earnings tally doesn't get deducted just because you spent it, even if on something as trivial as McDonalds.

Good on Roger. I expected him to earn a lot more given that he is as dominant in tennis as Tiger Woods is in golf. And Tiger earned about a $100 mils. Nevertheless, good job Roger:)

Hello All,
I'm a long time lurker at this site, and I've never posted here before. With regards to the captioned, I think Didadida is right. I'm pretty sure that the figure is misleading. It reflects what he has earned over his career. We know what he has made from tournament wins, we don't know what he has made through sponsorship, his business, etc..
So the listing/ranking is not very good. For some athletes it shows what they make in a year, for others it shows what they made in a career. You just have to check on the ATP website and look at Roger's profile to see what I mean. Look for career earnings vs year to date earnings. The figures for career correspond to what's on the rankings.
Anyways, hope you all have a good day, good night, wherever you are in the world right now.
Bye

Are you sure, I could have sworn that Sampras had career earnings of 43.00 millions. Duh, sorry :retard:ed me can't read, you're right Federer is just 3 million away from Sampras' career earnings. :o

I need to learn how to read. :lol: No wonder I did so poorly on those sections of the SAT and the SATII. :tape: :o (reading comprehension) :o
