Federer Breaks All-Time Prize Money Record for Individual Sport


Roger Federer has earned more prize money than any other athlete in sports history. Federer's victory over Germany’s Alexander Zverev on Tuesday at the Nitto ATP Finals in London on Tuesday raised career prize money haul to $110,235,682 (Federer is now at $110,426,682), which moves him past Tiger Woods and into first on the all-time list for prize money in individual sports.

Woods, a 14-time major golf champion, has earned $110,061,012 in prize money in his career.

Federer passed Novak Djokovic for the all-time lead in prize money in tennis earlier this year. Djokovic has earned $109,805,403. Rafael Nadal has earned $90,641,902, and Andy Murray comes in at $60,807,644.

Djokovic should pass Woods soon, and at the age of 30, he appears destined to move to the top of this list. But for now, the honor is Federer's.


Federer can win another $1,785,000 if he finishes the year with a title in London. He will face David Goffin on Saturday in the NittoATPFinals last four.
