Roger Federer set to become first Tennis billionaire
Tennis legend, Roger Federer is reportedly set to become Tennis’ first billionaire in 2020.

He will become only the fourth sportsperson to achieve this feat after Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, and Floyd Mayweather.

The Swiss tennis player has amassed a fortune from a combination of prize money and endorsements with big-brand multi-nationals.

According to Tennis.com, Roger Federer is currently worth $900 million, with a further $200 million guaranteed from upcoming sponsorship contracts.

“Federer’s career on-and-off-court earnings [are] approaching $900 million, with $200 million more committed by sponsors,” the website is reporting.

Should he achieve this feat, it will be the first time an athlete who plays Tennis would surpass this achievement.
