With his efforts at this week’s ATP Tour Finals, Roger Federer has surpassed Nike confrère Tiger Woods as the biggest individual-sport earner in history.

According to Forbes, Federer’s win over Alexander Zverev Tuesday puts him at a career $110,235,682, some $170,000 more than Woods.

Last month, Federer passed Novak Djokovic as the all-time earner in tennis. Per Forbes, Djokovic became the first tennis player to hit the $100 million mark in June 2016.

Woods, of course, has been a stationary target in recent years. Djokovic has been off the court since Wimbledon. When he returns in 2018, it’ll be a race again.
