Roger Federer left tennis last September at the Laver Cup, at London's O2 Arena, where the Swiss played his last match, in doubles, with his friend-rival of a thousand battles, Rafael Nadal. Roger said of his parting: "The last three years have presented me with challenges in the form of injuries and surgeries.
I have worked hard to get back to competitive fitness. But I also know the capabilities and limitations of my body and lately his message to me. it has been clear". Roger has collected just under $135 million in prize money since turning professional in 1998, the third in ATP Tour history, behind Novak Djokovic, first with $162 million, and Nadal, second with $135.2 million.
Off the court, according to Forbes, Federer has earned more than $1 billion throughout his career, mostly through endorsements and other deals from him. A sensational detachment from Djokovic and Nadal. Federer has long-term endorsement deals with more than a dozen brands, many of which have been with him for over a decade, including Credit Suisse, Lindt, Mercedes and Rolex.
In 2018, he signed a clothing deal with Uniqlo worth more than $300 million over ten years. Federer's main investment is his participation in the Swiss company On. Born in 2010 in Zurich from the idea of ââa former Ironman specialist, Olivier Bernhard, On produces sports shoes.
The first version, by admission of David Allemann, one of the founders, was so bad that it deserved the nickname of Frankenstein. Allemann told Forbes: "The shoe that Olivier offered us was very ugly and looked like a collage.
Lapentti speaks about King Roger
Roger Federer's game was among the most difficult to break as he barely had any weaknesses in his tennis arsenal, former World No. 6 Nicolas Lapentti opined. "He was that kind of a player where you would play a good shot and a better shot would come back.
It was very difficult to find a weak spot," Nicolas Lapentti said on a recent episode of The Craig Shapiro Tennis Podcast. "Roger was awesome in all aspects," Lapentti further said. "He was great on the court, he was great off the court, he was unbelievable in the locker room, he used to hang out and be funny and do jokes.
He loved soccer so we talked about soccer. He was all class. Of course, what he did to the tennis world was so amazing. I think no one will ever match what he did," he expressed.
