20 mill. a year is not that bad.
Noel only made $18mil including winnings in 2011.
Considered he won 3 slams and tons of titles in that year $18mil including winnings is nothing compared to Fed and Rafa.
Fed made $47 mil without winning a major in 2011. Now we know why he is better off staying on tour for a few more years!
