'My inspiration off the court was always Roger Federer', says ATP star

Throughout his career, Roger Federer has earned more than a billion dollars so far. Of this, about $ 900 million came from off-court endorsements, while he raised the remaining $ 131 million from his prize money. His current net worth is $ 450 million.

He is the first tennis player to cross the billionaire mark and is the sixth active athlete to do so. If he keeps winning like this even after retiring, he may even leave behind sports icons like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Roger Federer is not currently playing in the 2021 US Open and will soon undergo knee surgery. Even though he has decided to end his 2021 tennis season, fans are hoping that he will make an incredible return to the court as soon as possible.

Will he be able to win another Grand Slam title before saying goodbye to the sport?

Lorenzo Musetti on Roger Federer

Italian teenager Lorenzo Musetti recently revealed that he considers Roger Federer to be his inspiration when it comes to his fashion choices.

The 19-year-old, like Roger Federer, has a very traditional attitude towards fashion. They both seem to prefer old-school formal attire, and believe in the importance of upholding history. "My inspiration off the court was always Roger," the Italian added.

When asked to name his go-to outfit, Musetti said that he likes to keep it "simple" - long blue pants, a white T-shirt, sneakers and a jacket. "I keep it simple. Blue pants, [usually] long pants," Musetti said. "Nike shoes [or] sneakers and a white t-shirt and one jacket.

Really simple without so many collars, nice and easy." Moving on to Twitter, the Swiss ace has 12.7 million followers, the Serbian machine has 8.8 million followers and the Spanish star has 15.6 million followers. On Facebook, Federer has 18.5 million followers, Djokovic has 10.3 million followers and Nadal has 14.8 million followers.

Overall, the man from Switzerland has 39.8 million followers, taking all three social media platforms into account. In that context, the athlete from Serbia has 28.2 million followers and the Spanish national has 42.2 million followers.

Taking it all into account, Rafa exceeds Roger and Novak when it comes to having a larger fan following. When Roger Federer was into his 19th year in 2000, he made the fourth round at Roland Garros, suffered an opening-round exit at Wimbledon and progressed to the third round of the US Open.

But it is pertinent to note that Federer also made the third round of the Australian Open, while the Italian failed to make it to the main draw this year.
