Top athlete from which sport makes the most money – outside of endorsements?

Posted by tennisplanet on July 14, 2010

Federer is averaging a measly $4.6 million per year – over 12 years.

Nadal $3.5 million – over 9 years.

Sampras a shade over $3 million – over 14 years.

Kobe Bryant is averaging $19,800,000 per year. That’s nearly $20 million every freaking year, for the mentally challenged – over 14 years.

Tiger Woods is averaging $5.1 – over 18 years.

How much do these soccer clowns make?

    If “measly” will rent you the JEMS yacht to skim pretty much your whole extended family around Corsica for the better part of a week — with, it appears, few worries about what the bill might run to — I’ll take “measly”, thanks.

      Ditto! Did you see pictures of babies and family?? The twins are sooo cute but obviously don’t like the water! 🙂 🙂

        They are so cute.

        Is it my imagination, or are they already *really* tall and long-legged for (almost) one-year-olds? 🙂

        I don’t think they are tall for almost 1 year olds. I LOVE those chub legs – always been my fav on babies – only time females are complimented on chubby legs is when they are babies! ! 🙂 🙂

        I looked again, I think you are right – they are tall. I think the woman in white is Mirka’s Mom and the twin that she is holding hands with looks pretty tall for 1 years old!

      I’ll take ‘measly’ too when you consider what most people earn.

      I know, right? I’m thinking even the “regular” millionaires would be feeling a little insecure if they compared themselves to somebody like Roger or Juanquí, you know? 😛
