ZURICH: Tennis legend Roger Federer feels it is good for the sport that players are getting financially stronger and can compete in that aspect with other disciplines.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion recently was in the top spot on the annual Forbes list of the highest-paid athletes for the first time this year with $106.3 million in pre-tax earnings.

The Swiss ace is the first tennis player to take the No. 1 rank since the list debuted in 1990, as per Forbes official website.

“Maybe it’s good for tennis that we can compete with football, boxing, Formula 1 and basketball, where the wages are incredible. But I’m rather embarrassed when it’s in the papers,” Federer was quoted as saying in an interview with Zeit.
