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.

what do you mean? you wanna tell me there are more people on this planet that know federer than agassi? come on.
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 :shrug: :)

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

since when does that matter? it's about the marketability, not the money (think of roddick regarding career achievements earning way more than roger annually off endorsements). roger's not a flashy person, let's face it, and that's what it all boils down to when it comes to deals. phillipoussis would still easily outdistance davydenko if he was still on tour concerning income.

well, tennis is down in the states. big factor.

tennis isn't really high in germany, canada, brazil, russia, italy, great britain, india or china. what for would you sign roger to a lifetime contract? to market him in switzerland and serbia?
