In the world of tennis, some legendary names have stood the test of time. While he hasn’t yet called it a career, it’s already safe to put Roger Federer in that category.
Federer stepped onto the stage in the late 1990s and made a name for himself on the junior racetrack. He first joined the ATP Tour as a teenager in the summer of 1998; the following year he made his Grand Slam debut at the French Open.
While there was some mounting pain along the way, Federer proved that he had what it takes to play at the highest level. In 2001 he overtook Pete Sampras in a classic with five sets at Wimbledon. The Swiss star finally broke through in 2003 and won his first individual Grand Slam title when he defeated Andy Roddick in the All England Club. From there the rest is history.
Even though Federer turned 39 in August 2020, he’s still an integral part of the tennis world. The Swiss may have lost a step in the past few years, but his résumé – 20 Grand Slam titles, 11 runner-ups and countless other records – speaks for itself.

Due to the individual nature of tennis, Roger Federer does not enter into massive team contracts like most North American athletes do. However, that reality hasn’t stopped him from building a massive fortune.
According to Forbes, Federer has taken home more than $ 130 million in profits over the years. However, this money is only a small part of his income. Due to its star status, the Swiss has an “unsurpassed portfolio of lucrative advertising contracts”.
Federer has signed contracts with Mercedes-Benz, Rolex, Credit Suisse, Barilla and Wilson Sporting Goods, each of which brings in millions of dollars annually. He moved from Nike to Uniqlo in 2018 and signed a 10-year deal worth $ 300 million.
As you would guess, these sources of income make Federer incredibly rich. According to CelebrityNetWorth, the Swiss star has an estimated net worth of $ 450 million.

No professional athlete, not even one as dominant as Roger Federer, can keep playing forever. Finally, Father Time catches up with everyone. While the Swiss star isn’t ready to speak of a career just yet, he knows exactly what he’s going to do when he retires.
Because of his wealth and success on the pitch, Federer was able to spend his free time doing practically anything his heart desires. However, it seems he has a pretty common plan up his sleeve.
“After my career, I will not sit on the sofa anymore,” Federer told the German-speaking NZZ after a quote from Business Insider. “I recently bought an old bus from the 1960s. I look forward to traveling with it. Europe is small, everything is easily accessible. Traveling is easier than ever. ”
While the tennis ace is no stranger to you, this retirement trip across Europe will be a little different. Without any sporting commitments, Federer is ready to simply relax.
“I want to visit all the cities and countries where I have been a tennis player – completely relaxed and without any sporting pressure,” he explained.
We can all relate to this feeling, even without millions of dollars in the bank.
