Nadull sucks. :lol:
Why sucks? he is tenth from a lot of sportman. And fed is first because he secured nike many years ago before anyone else peaked, and when the only competence were mugs like philippousis,ivanisevic, bagdathis, and headcases like hewitt, roddick and safin.

Fed just had the luck to be 6-5 years older than Rafa and Nole.

Fed secured his endorsements in a weak era for advertisement. Classic.

Forgot to mention that Maria Sharapova is in the top-10 right ahead of Nadal, at $23 million. So there's three tennis players in the top-10 of all sports.

Nike, Gillette, Rolex, Mercedes Benz, Wilson...
It's no wonder he's earning so much money there.

Can't believe Sharapova is ahead of Rafa. I like the lass but come on now.
Well,she puts more work into her endorsements and c'mon,she's a much better spokesperson than Rafa. He's hardly got a mastery of the English language has he?

True...but she is far from being a GOAT. 4 slams???? That slam aged 17 changed everything for her. That was 10 years ago.

What about Phil Mickelson? He's not much closer to being GOAT in his chosen sport than what she is and he earns mega bucks. David Beckham? Another name I notice on there is Mahendra Singh Dhoni. A good player? For sure. An all time great? Hardly. There's more factors that go into it than simply performance in their chosen sport

Shows how bizarre the ATP is. Whole world, including the fans and the corporations, know Federer is the GOAT and the most marketable in history while Nadull is about equal to a model in the WTA. And yet they do everything they can to screw over Roger and cheat Nadull into as many slams as they can. ATP is not like a business, it's more like Tony's mafia, because it cares more about loyalty and power than actual money or popularity. Just a shame the whole thing will collapse when Fed retires, his success in spite of the ATP is the only thing keeping them alive :sad:

Actually, Nike has had Federer for a relative bargain until recently because they locked Fed into a long-term (10-year?) contract early in his career when he hadn't yet racked up all the slams. it has only been with the new contract (in 2010?) that Federer has been paid a lot. Of course this one is apparently also a 10-year contract so they'll be paying him until well past his retirement. Anyway, you would have to look at who is around in 2010 and not 2000 when talking about the Nike endorsement.

Shows how much Fedtards respect their God to suggest he would bend under the will of a fictional tennis mafia :haha:
