    They were comparing djokovic's last year earninings which was less than 15 million..

    anyway am sure djokovic will never have half of what he has right now when he stops playing.. he is not loyal to a brand and his brand image is diluted.. he was with adidas first, then taggicchi and now uniqlo.. basically wandering between whoever pays more money..

    The items I've seen from around 2006 which mention the deal outline his $15m, ten year deal. It's nothing new.

    The item you've seen - the one which shows the timing of him winning Wimbledon and donning his watch - seems to have recycled info on the deal.
    That 1 min 28 secs detail has then been recycled again in a number of me too websites.

    While the timing may be accurate but it's likely got nothing at all to do with any specific dollar amount - he is and has been sponsored by them for years. The rest of the item reeks of "guess something" journalism which, as usual, is repeated elsewhere by other websites similarly lacking in any journalistic quality. Repeating something doesn't give it any more credibility.

    I think you'll find they're what the media business call "repeaters"... Those that don't generate any original news - rather they grab it from elsewhere. The info may well be generally right but some key details seem to be missing.

    Here's the original mention of the timing of the match ending to the watch donning. > It's game, set and watch

    Federer's deal, as I said, would not be as you put it a $15m deal for this year or for having won Wimbledon.

    In the item I linked to it says: "The brand bought Federer's allegiance for almost £10 million in 2006 in what is thought to be the world's most lucrative watch deal ever signed by an athlete."

    There's even this from Sportsbusiness Daily - an arguably (generally) reliable source of sporting business new - from back in 2006. > Big Time: Roger Federer Signs Ten-Year Deal With Rolex

    "Tennis player Roger Federer has signed an endorsement deal with Rolex worth up to $15M over roughly ten years, which is “thought to be the most lucrative watch deal ever for an athlete,” according to a source cited by Daniel Kaplan of Sportsbusiness Journal."

    I highlighted the quotes of each you should take note of. It might pay to read a little further than the first result in a google search if you want to find something worthy of quoting.

    With all due respect mate... I read all of those.. the thing it was mentioned in 2012 that he inked a 15 million deal in 2012.. i thought like u in the beginning but then I wondered if he is still in the same deal why would he sign it again in 2012?? which then had me wondering if he was paid 15 million in 2012.. its anyone's guess really..

    rolex being swiss company makes me want to believe they paid that much this year.. also the numbers would add up.. his earnings are around 55 million a year.. : 15 from nike, 15 from rolex, 1.5 from wilson, and others follow..

    You don't need to say with all due respect... The item on Bobswatches is a classic "repeater" article. It's poorly written, with a number of odd grammatical errors - an obvious warning bell to anyone with above average comprehension skills. The headline is deliberately written to attract attention and then article says nothing of the sort.

    Notwithstanding, the Bobswatches item DOES NOT say he signed a deal or a new deal with Rolex in 2012. It says "it was reported that Roger Federer is currently earning a $15 million endorsement deal from the Rolex Company".

    If you disagree, please show me what part of that item implies or states outright that a new deal has been signed.

    That wesbite, FYI, is little more than a blog loaded with repeated news (which is slightly edited to fool the search bots) for the purpose of raising its search rankings as a site for people selling Rolex watches. It suits their commercial purpose and nothing else. It's not a news site anymore than McDonald's is a cooking school.
