On court this might not have been a year for Roger Federer befitting his stature, but that in no way has affected the Swiss tennis icon’s domination in the brand market. Federer, who had to miss the Olympics and is not competing the year ending Major US Open, is the highest-earning tennis player of the year, reveals the latest list released by the business journal Forbes. Collectively, tennis’ ten highest-paid players made $320 million over the last 12 months, down 6% from last year’s total of $340 million. The Forbes magazine has reported Federer’s pretax earnings at $90.6 million for the past 12 months. The on-court revenue contributes to less than a million to his total earnings. Naomi Osaka, who was in news for opting out of the Wimbledon citing mental health issues, is in the second position with aggregate income of $60.1 million. A sharp contract to Federer, on court revenue contributed 90% of her total revenue. In the number three position, Serena Williams has aggregated $ 41.8 million. This include $40 million in off-court revenue. Novak Djokovic, who this year was in contention for the Golden Slam since he crashed out in the Tokyo Olympics semi-finals, is placed fourth with total revenue of $ 38 million - $ 8 million by playing and $30 million from other sources. Rafael Nadal, taking time off as he manages a rare condition known as Müller-Weiss disease or Müller-Weiss syndrome, in the 5th position has earned $27 million in 2021 - his on-court revenue being $ 4 million. The other top ten contenders included: 6. Kei Nishikori $ 26 mn – on-court: $1m and off-court $25 mn; 7. Daniel Medvedev $13.9 – on-court: 5.9 mn and off-court: 8mn; 8. Dominic Thiem $8.9 mn – on-court: $4.9 mn and off-court $4 mn; 9. Stefanos Tsitsipas $8.1 mn – on court: 4.1 mn and off-court $ 4mn; and 10.
