Roger Federer’s finances after a surprising Australian Open loss

  • As the highest-paid tennis player in the world, Roger Federer has made an estimated $450 million in his career.
  • Federer’s endorsement deals were the highest in professional sports last year.
  • Federer was vying to win his seventh Australian Open title, but he lost to Stefanos Tsitsipas on Jan. 20.

Roger Federer co-holds the title of six-time Australian Open winner and was back in Australia competing for the most championships won at the tournament.

Although No. 3 seed Federer achieved victory over Taylor Fritz, the tennis champ found himself bested by No. 14 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas on Jan. 20 in an upset. The junior player, who idolizes Federer, characterized the match as “a very emotional moment.” Here’s a look at the tennis legend’s wealth and career.
