When their careers are over, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic will be judged by the number of Grand Slam titles they win. A tight race is also shaping up between the three when it comes to career earnings.
As Federer nears the end of his career, he has already topped $US80 million in earnings on the ATP Tour. Meanwhile, Nadal, who is about five years younger than Federer, is just over $US11 million behind Federer and on pace to easily break $US80 million.
Djokovic, whose earnings got off to a slower start, is now on a similar earnings pace as Nadal.
