Hello friends today we will talking about Tennis Player. Because Novak Djokovic has not had the Covid-19 vaccination, he is not permitted to enter the United States. Roger Federer’s knee issue keeps him out of action. During what is anticipated to be Serena Williams’ final Grand Slam, Rafael Nadal, who is hindered by an abdominal injury, is openly admitting that his own retirement may be approaching.
The U.S. Open can no longer rely on those four lights to shine brightly on its field year after year when it kicks off in New York on Monday with $2.6 million to be handed to the singles champions. However, there are many up-and-comers who are prepared to take their place in the Tennis Player firmament, and they are already prospering financially.
Federer, 41, has held the title of highest-paid tennis player in the world for the past 17 years, earning an estimated $90 million before taxes and agents’ fees over the past 12 months despite not participating in a single match. However, Naomi Osaka, 24, has taken over second place, earning an estimated $56.2 million over the same period.
Williams ($35.1 million), Nadal ($31.4 million), and Djokovic ($27.1 million) round out the top five, but 19-year-old Emma Raducanu, who debuts at No. 6 on Forbes’ Tennis Player earnings leaderboard with $21.1 million, is close behind them.
The top-ranked male player in the world, Daniil Medvedev, 26, of Russia, earned an estimated $19.3 million to place him at No. 7, and Carlos Alcaraz, 19, of Spain, jumped to No. 10 with $10.9 million.
The top 10 tennis earners collectively earned an estimated $316 million, which is down from 2020’s $343 million and about flat from last year’s $320 million.
However, the group’s off-court earnings of $285 million through endorsements, public appearances, and other business ventures set a record and surpassed the $281 million earned the previous year.
The influx of new blood is welcome for a sport that has been dominated by a small group of individuals for the last two decades.
The 40-year-old Williams, who revealed in an essay for Vogue on August 9 that she was getting ready to retire, has amassed more than $440 million in earnings over her career, easily the most of any female athlete ever.
She has won 23 Grand Slam singles titles, a record for Tennis Player’ open era. Among the richest self-made women in America, her estimated net worth of $260 million places her in the 90th position.
On the men’s side, Nadal, 36, has a record 22 Grand Slam singles championships after winning the Australian Open and French Open this year. Djokovic, 35, has 21 after winning Wimbledon last month, while Federer has 20. Just 13 of the men’s singles titles from the last 76 Slams, which date back to 2003, have been won by someone else.
The three superstars have also shown to be formidable off the field: Djokovic has earned more than $470 million, while Nadal has made an estimated $500 million, and Federer has made more than $470 million. Federer is one of just seven athletes to have made at least $1 billion before taxes.
Tennis Player commentators refer to a “lost generation” as players in their late 20s and early 30s who failed to reach the pinnacle of the sport as a result of the Big Three’s prolonged dominance. Men’s Tennis Player appears to be entering a new era soon, with Medvedev and Alcaraz being pursued in the earnings race by 23-year-old Casper Ruud (an estimated $10.4 million this past year).
24-year-old Stefanos Tsitsipas ($8.9 million), and 25-year-old Alexander Zverev ($8.3 million). It’s unclear whether this is because the new generation of players is more talented or simply because Federer and Nadal are starting
Some well-known players will be absent from the U.S. Open, but fresh Tennis Player are stepping up to join the top 10, which earned $316 million in total last year.
