A 20-time Grand Slam champion. A runner-up in 30 Grand Slam finals. Remained at the no. 1 spot for a record 302 weeks in world tennis rankings. Holds the record for second-highest career singles titles, with 103 wins, in the Open Era. Winner of a world record eight Wimbledon titles. The oldest player, at 36, to be ranked no. 1 in the world. You’d have to be living under a rock to not know Roger Federer.
The Swiss ace is one of the greatest to have ever graced the elegant sport of tennis. While he’s a force to be reckoned with on the court, Federer is just as influential off it. With $106 million in pre-tax earnings, Federer was ranked the world’s highest-paid athlete for 2020 by Forbes last month.
The endorsement deals and match-winnings have not only allowed the 38-year-old to top the rich list, but has, over the years, allowed him to live a luxurious life. Whether it’s fancy cars, expensive watches or lavish properties, Federer is reaping the benefits of his hard work on the tennis court.
The tennis legend has, for long, hogged the spotlight for his $8-million glass mansion, with floor-to-ceiling see-through windows, overlooking the tranquil Lake Zurich in Switzerland. But, that’s not the only paradise of a home he owns. Federer also boasts of a larger-than-life luxurious penthouse in Dubai which undeniably makes his other possessions look ordinary.
