Yet Another Record for feder

Poisoned Slice

The man stands far above Tiger Woods in the sphere of morality, and marginally above him in the sphere of sporting greatness.
I wouldn't expect a late career Tiger charge either. Don't see him increasing much in sporting greatness unless he did win a major. That would up his value more because of all the struggles. I don't see it. The competition in golf compared to how it used to be when he was on top of his game and fighting ''Double D'' (clear your dirty minds) David Duval and Vijay Singh. Not forgetting that his body keeps breaking down every week. Even when he did seem to get going you always knew there was another setback coming fast. The scandal started it all off. Tamed Tiger, at least it did on the golf course, no idea about his other antics. Might be as wild as ever.

How much has Tiger made in the last 8 or 9 years?
Zverev or whoever ascends is going to make this look pedestrian with at least 15 mil a year.

Local news is he's quite the wreck. It's unfortunate too, I don't know how many can survive such a fall from grace.

Probably, yes. Federer just passed Djokovic after Basel, and Djokovic earning more than him with their respective resumes with them being just six years apart is mindboggling. In 10 years, reaching 100 mil will be easy-peasy for top 5 players. :eek:

Ha, top 5 players, I never thought about that. Looking at the current leaderboard - Ferrer, Wawrinka and Berdych are 7, 8 and 9 respectively and none of them have ever ranked higher than 3 and two of them have never won a slam (just two finals between them to boot)!

I like how his lifetime total earnings are nowhere to be found. Quite easily over a billion.

If you're wondering how, consider his recent reported earnings in endorsements have been between 50 & 80 million yearly. If you take 30 million after taxes and extrapolate that over 10 years and consider even low risk investments you've got half a billion.

But then he's been a magnet since 2004 so that's 14 years total and 100+ million in prize money. So you start to see the picture.

He might even be worth several billions. Depends on those investments but basic stocks like Amazon have gone up 22 fold in a decade.
