Per Forbes “Billion-Dollar Ballers” ranking, Roger Federer earned a total of 1.09 billion dollars across his entire career. “Despite not playing in a tournament since Wimbledon last July, the 40-year-old Swiss maestro earned more money off the field—$90 million—than any other athlete in the world over the last 12 months.
He’s a top pitchman for Rolex and Uniqlo and has a sizable investment in burgeoning shoe brand On,” Forbes explains Federer’s earnings. Talking about Federer and his partnership with On Running, in a recent Inc article, On Running co-founder Oliver Bernhard revealed how Roger Federer became a partner at his running shoe company.
According to Inc, who interviewed Bernhard, “just starting your own business and having it be successful is a win, but On Running was in motion and things were about to get even bigger. After some time, the guys were approached by tennis legend and fellow Swiss athlete Roger Federer.
Federer wasn’t just a fan. He was interested in getting very involved. Was this a Michael Jordan Jumpman moment for On? Maybe. Federer is arguably the G.O.A.T., and collectively the Swiss countrymen had a lot in common in terms of vision and competitive DNA”.
