Over the last decade, Federer has witnessed increased competition from Nadal and Djokovic. However, Federer is still the king in terms of earnings.

Nadal, Djokovic unlikely to surpass Federer earnings

Although Nadal and Djokovic are likely to surpass Federer’s Grand Slam record, neither of them is ever likely to surpass his career earnings and sponsorship deals.

With Nadal and Federer relying mostly on endorsements, their earnings won’t be significantly affected even without taking part in major tournaments due to injuries. Most of their endorsement contracts attract huge guarantees and are immune to reductions.
