Roger is a face we often see on our TV screens and on social media too. Not only playing tennis but Roger has been a part of many great campaigns globally.

But what got him to quit in 2018? Roger quitting Nike, what strange news? But the resources have confirmed that Uniqlo, a company that was long trying to get into the tennis world has laid its eyes on him. Yes! They are paying him $300 million per year to promote their Japanese brand.
Ever since Roger signed Uniqlo, he ditched Nike. The worst part is the RF logo is going to stay with Nike forever and is not going to follow him to Uniqlo. All these sponsorships have caused him a good worth. When you are lucky enough to be the world’s top player, you get these kinds of perks.
