Rafael Nadal tops annual list of highest-paid tennis players

In 2015 it looked like the tennis player’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (September 20) that Nadal is the highest-paid tennis player in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between August 2016 and August 2017, a nearly $40 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The Spanish tennis player has an estimated net worth of $215 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Nadal Burger” chain) in Madrid, a Football Team (the “Manacor Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondernadal - Spain), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Rafael) and a fashion line called “Rafael Nadal Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Rafael fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
