Tennis Today: The net worth of Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic ‘revealed’
In Tennis Today, one media outlet happily gives you everything you never needed to know about the wealth of people you’re unlikely to ever meet.
What’s on the site
You could be forgiven for thinking that everything comes almost annoyingly easily to Naomi Osaka after her double Grand Slam success catapulted her to world number one, but it’s not all plain sailing for the Japanese star.
She is being sued by a former coach, and has had to arm herself with a high-profile lawyer.
Nor is it going all that swimmingly for Rafael Nadal, with one pundit noting that the Spaniard ‘could hardly move’ at Indian Wells.
That’s probably good news for other ATP stars though, with recently crowned Masters champion Dominic Thiem admitting clay success is his main focus.
And, of course, Novak Djokovic would probably be the main beneficiary of a sustained Nadal absence, with Greg Rusedski claiming the world number one is ready for another resurgence.
What’s in the news
Well, not a whole lot if the Express’ running of Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer’s respective net worths are anything to go by.
Citing ‘Celebrity net worth’ as the source, the Express claims that Djokovic has a worth of £155million.
It also offered valuable insights such as ‘in 2009, Djokovic splashed $2.5m on a luxurious Manhattan yacht but it’s not known if he still owns it.’
That’s nothing, though, compared to Federer, who apparently has a net worth of £340million.
His little luxuries are said to include a ‘glass mansion on the shore of Lake Zurich’
So, as you can see, there really isn’t a great deal of news around today!
Oh, and Alexander Zverev has adopted a puppy. There’s that, too.
What’s on social media
Tomas Berdych had a disappointing announcement.
