TONY GODSICK: ROGER FEDERER’S PASSPORT KEY TO FINANCIAL SUCCESS
by FREAKYFRITTERS


In an article published this week by SwissInfo delves into Roger Federer’s finances and his growing corporate appeal. Some facts and figures from the piece:

He’s earned $61,657,232 in prize money alone since 1998.
Swiss business magazine Bilan estimates Roger’s fortune to be worth a staggering $200-300 million Swiss Francs nest egg. That’s like $210 – $315 million USD. That’s a lot of Nike sweatbands.
Sports Illustrated estimates that Federer earned $62 million in 2010 alone, two-thirds of which came from sponsorship deals. Only Tiger Woods did better, with $90 million.
In comparison, Rafael Nadal made $27 million in 2010. Poor guy.
Roger’s agent, Tony Godsick, was quoted in the Swiss media during last month’s Australian Open:

“Roger is a global icon and we see to it that his brand develops internationally,” Godsick told Geneva-based newspaper Le Temps.

“What makes him so attractive for all the big companies is the fact that he is Swiss. Switzerland is a small country with which one associates loyalty, luxury, precision and perfection. Now, whether he’s in France, Asia, the United States or elsewhere, he’s welcomed as though he were at home,” he said.

“It’s as though his country’s neutrality makes him a global citizen.”

Well, being Swiss certainly makes you a shoe-in for watch and chocolate sponsorships. And banks, of course.

In 2009, Roger signed a ten-year deal with the financial institution, worth an estimated $20 million.

I know it's said in jest ( I hope :lol: ), but I used to really think like that... now I believe it's just shitty to change our empathy for fellow humans according to the size of their bank accounts. If someone gets ***** for example, I won't think "who cares, he/she's rich enough to get the best shrinks :rolleyes:"

Yeah now about this filthy rich dude.
Good for him I guess. He must bring loads of money to his sponsors if they pay him that much, and as long as some of that goes to charity I'm not complaining.

This reminds me of when I saw Federer and Nadal for the first time. I had the impression the former came from a wealthy background and the latter from some poor fishermen village :rolls:
I had no idea they've almost the same normal background, with Nadal's family seemingly being the more well off one.

All the more respectable. He seems like a smart bloke, I guess he has made a few good investments for the future past his playing and sponsorship days..

:haha:

Rafa seems like a poor little humble child from some rural island but his family owns several restaurants and is very well off, his uncle was a star footballer for Barcelona and Mallorca.

Yeah, that was Rafa's image in the early years supported by the pirata pants, the long hair restrained by the bandana, the sleeveless shirts, and the lack of English skills. He looked and sounded like some wild force of nature without refinement. :lol: Well, he's come a long way baby - Carlos and Benito took note and now he's all duded out in kits with short-sleeved tailored tops and off court in v-neck sweaters a la Roger. Oh, need I mention his English has improved by leaps and bounds? ;)
