Roger Federer is the highest earning international athlete

According to Sports Illustrated, the 16-time Grand Slam champion was the highest-earning international athlete this year, dethroning soccer star David Beckham atop the rankings. Based on winnings, endorsements and appearance fees, Federer is projected to earn over $62 million in 2010, considerably more than the No. 2 international athlete list on the list, Lionel Messi. Federer's total would put him second among all athletes in SI's rankings, still well behind Tiger Woods, but just ahead of Phil Mickelson.

In the 2009 rankings, Federer placed ninth with earnings of close to $30 million. That's the same spot occupied this year by Rafael Nadal. The world No. 1 makes his debut on SI's International list after netting a cool $27 million.

Federer signed new sponsorship deals in 2009 with Credit Suisse and Lindt in addition to his previous relationships with Nike, Rolex, Gillette and Mercedes Benz.

Roger Federer: Quest For Perfection Book now available in English & Paperback

Roger Federer: Quest For Perfection, the updated and re-released book that chronicles the incredible tennis career of Roger Federer, has been officially re-released in paperback by publisher New Chapter Press. The book also appears in English for the first time.

Roger Federer: Quest For Perfection ($19.95, New Chapter Press) was written by Rene Stauffer, the esteemed Swiss tennis journalist who has covered Federer since the budding tennis champion was a 15-year-old. The book chronicles Federer's life as a tempermental junior player, his early struggles on the ATP Tour, his break-out win at Wimbledon in 2003 through his record-breaking 15th major singles title at Wimbledon in 2009. The book also focuses on his values, how he has been marketed, his relationship with the media as well as his numerous charitable pursuits.

Federer made his statement for being considered as the greatest tennis player of all-time in 2009 when he defeated Andy Roddick 5-7, 7-6 (6), 7-6 (5), 3-6, 16-14 to win his sixth Wimbledon singles title and capture his 15th major singles title, surpassing the all-time men's record of 14 set by Pete Sampras. Four weeks earlier, Federer defeated Robin Soderling 6-1, 7-6 (1), 6-4 to win the French Open, moving him into exclusive company as only the sixth man to complete a "Career Grand Slam" - winning all four major tournaments over a career.

Federer's major trophy mantle, that now numbers 16, currently includes the 2009 French Open title, six Wimbledon titles (2003-2007, 2009), five U.S. Open titles (2004-2008) and four Australian Open titles (2004, 2006, 2007, 2010).

Stauffer is one of the world's leading tennis journalists and the highly-respected tennis correspondent for Zurich's Tages-Anzeiger and Sonntags-Zeitung. A sports writer since 1981, Stauffer worked for the Swiss newspapers Blick and Sport, before joining Tages-Anzeiger in 1993.

After first writing about Federer in 1996, Stauffer has traveled the world covering Federer and his many triumphs.

New Chapter Press is an independent publisher of books and part of the Independent Publishers Group. More information can be found at www.NewChapterMedia.com.

Roger stunned by Tomas Berdych

Roger lost to Tomas Berdych in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon today, the six-time champion’s earliest loss at the All England Club since 2002. He was beaten 4-6, 6-3, 1-6, 4-6 by Berdych, the 12th seed from the Czech Republic.

"It was brutal for me. Every time he had a chance, he took it. If there's anything good about this it's I'm gonna get some rest," summed up Roger, who added he had been troubled by a stiff back and right leg injury.

Roger came in with an 8-2 career record against Berdych, having lost the first match at the 2004 Athens Olympics and the last in Miami this year. He also played his 25th consecutive Grand Slam quarterfinal.

Roger, who has appeared in every Wimbledon final since 2003, lost the first set, 4-6, but rallied back in the second set, which he won 6-3. Berdych looked uncomfortable and Roger hit his groundstrokes shorter. But unfortunately Berdych regained control. The Czech seized the third set 6-1, and got an early break in the fourth set and never yielded control, serving for the set at 5-4.

"I'm looking forward to some rest," Roger said after the match. You certainly deserve it!

Despite his rankings slide, Federer says he believes he still has what it takes to reclaim his top spot in the men's game: "Yeah, I do think that - that's why I'm here," he said.
