He may not have won this year's U.S. Open, but Roger Federer is still the top-earning player in his sport, with $64 million in earnings for 2017, according to Forbes.

That's almost double the earnings of Novak Djokovic, second on the Forbes list with $37.6 million and the 2017 US Open champion. Federer rakes in prize money from endorsement deals with brands like Barilla (he recently inked a five-year partnership with the pasta company), Nike, Mercedes-Benz, Rolex, and Credit Suisse. In fact, Forbes named him the highest-paid tennis player for the 12th year in a row.

On the women's side, 35-year-old Serena Williams ranked number six in the world, as the top-earning female at $27 million, thanks to deals with Nike and Pepsi.

Here's the complete list:

1. Roger Federer ($64 million)

2. Novak Djokovic ($37.6 million)

3. Kei Nishikori ($33.9 million)

4. Rafael Nadal ($31.5 million)

5. Andy Murray ($28.8 million)

6. Serena Williams ($27 million)

7. Stan Wawrinka ($19.2 million)

8. Angelique Kerber ($12.6 million)

9. Milos Raonic ($11.8 million)

10. Venus Williams ($10.5 million)
