Forbes ranks the world’s highest-paid tennis players: Djokovic far from the podium, there’s Alcaraz

Roger Federer remains the king: for the 17th year in a row, the Swiss champion is the world’s highest-paid tennis player according to the ranking compiled by Forbes. Although he has not played an official match in 14 months, the Swiss between advertisements and various activities remains the highest paid with an impressive 90 million euros, almost twice as much as the runner-up, Japan’s Naomi Osaka (56.2 million).

Also on the podium is Serena Williams, who a few weeks ago announced her farewell, at 35.1 million. Then Rafa Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Emma Raducanu, current world number one Daniil Medvedev and Kei Nishikori.

Entering the 10 for the first time in his career is the very young Carlos Alcaraz, who this time beat rival Jannik Sinner: for the Murcia tennis player, that’s 10.9 million earned in the last 12 months.
