Roger Federer is the highest paid tennis player in the world!

Like every year, on the occasion of the US Open, forbes publishes the list of the highest paid tennis players of the tour: Once again, Roger Federer is the undisputed king of this ranking; a record he holds for the seventeenth year.

With no game played in 2022, the $90 million earned over the past 12 months, according to Forbes, comes from sponsors: from UNIQLO to Rolex, walking through their shoe line. Number one on the double list is the runner-up: Naomi Osaka earned a value of 56.2 million.

the tennis queen, Serena Williams, closes the podium. The American, who is one step away from retiring from tennis as announced in the pages of Vogue, follows at 35.1 million.

The podium therefore lacks the other two members of the Big 3, who are watching from the two lower steps.

Rafael Nadal ranks fourth in the rankings, breaking the 30 million threshold earned in those 12 months; Fifth was Novak Djokovic, who got less from tournaments this year after playing less than in previous years.

Included in the rankings are the two US Open title holders: Emma Raducanu first, Daniil Medvedev after. The surprise comes in eighth on this ranking, occupied by Kei Nishikori. The Japanese didn’t play any games in 2022 but remains firmly in Forbes’ list.

To close the top ten, two players from two different generations: first the veteran Venus Williams, then the new lever of world tennis, Carlos Alcaraz, who, like Raducanu, makes his debut in this ranking. The battle to be the GOAT of tennis is a seemingly never-ending story: Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have continued the battle for nearly twenty years, with a winner yet to be defined and final.

The last two continue to grind Slam titles, breaking away from the player who opened this new tennis season: three Grand Slams have been played this 2022, two won by the Spaniard and one by the Serb. When the youngest fight and win on the court, Roger Federer definitely wins off the court.
