Roger Federer is one win away from overtaking golfer Tiger Woods as the top prize money earner in individual sports.

If Federer beats Germany’s Alexander Zverev in his second group match at the season-ending Nitto ATP Finals in London on Tuesday, he’ll take his career prize money to a cool $110,235,682.

That means he’ll surpass current prize money leader Woods, a 14-time major golf champion who has earned $110,061,012 in prize money in his career.

 Unlike Federer, the American’s earnings have stalled since revelations in 2009 about his private life and a string of long-term injuries in recent years.

Federer, 36, has been on the men’s ATP World Tour since 1998. During that time, he’s won 95 tournaments, including a men’s record 19 grand slam singles titles. The Swiss has had one of his best seasons this year, coming back from a six-month long injury break to win major titles at the Australian Open and Wimbledon.


The second-ranked Federer had opened the ATP Finals with a straight-sets win over American Jack Sock. He’ll play his third group match against former US Open winner Marin Cilic of Croatia. Should Federer win a record-extending seventh ATP Finals title without losing any matches, he will add a whopping $2.6 million to his 2017 prize money, which currently stands at just over $11 million.

Federer may be top dog when it comes to career prize money, the 41-year-old Woods is still well ahead in overall earnings.

Woods, who last month hinted at a comeback following back surgery in April, has made $1.4 billion since turning pro two decades ago from prize money and endorsements, according to FORBES. Federer has made $506 million in on- and off-court earnings in his career, FORBES reported last year.
