Not much more could have gone right for tennis’ Roger Federer this year.

He missed the last six months of 2016 because of injuries, and entered this year as a 35-year-old who hadn’t won a Grand Slam singles title since 2012.

But he went on to win two in 2017 — the Australian Open and Wimbledon — to increase his Open-era record to 19. In fact, he has only lost four matches this year, while winning over $11 million and reaching No. 2 in the world.

And with his wins this week at the ATP Finals in London, at which only the top eight-ranked men play, he has now won $110,235,682 in prize money during his career. That makes him the top prize money earner in individual sports, according to Forbes.

The longtime leader in the category had been golfer Tiger Woods, who has won 14 major titles and earned $110,061,012 in prize money.

Of course, these numbers don’t include endorsement earnings. Both athletes have made hundreds of millions from sponsors.

Federer made $64 million total last year, and added a new sponsor — the pasta purveyor Barilla — to his many others, which include Wilson, Credit Suisse, Mercedes-Benz, Rolex and Nike NKE, +1.16%  , which pays him a reported $10 million a year as part of a 10-year deal.

Woods, 41, hasn’t played in many tournaments over the past few years because of injuries, but still makes a lot of money from sponsorships. He made over $37 last year alone. His deal with Nike reportedly pays him over $200 million over 10 years.
