  • Rafael Nadal, King of Clay, won the 2018 French Open, earning $2.4 million.
  • With more than $100 million in career winnings, Nadal is one of the highest-paid tennis players of all time.
  • From buying a yacht to playing the French Open wearing a six-figure Richard Mille watch, Nadal likes to spend his money a little lavishly — but he also puts his money toward philanthropy, tennis centers, and investments.

Rafael Nadal, informally known as the King of Clay, took command of the 2018 French Open. Not only did the win become his 11th French Open title and 17th Grand Slam title, it earned him $2.4 million.

Nadal has a history of spending his hard-earned money a little lavishly, from buying a six-figure watch to purchasing a second home in the Dominican Republic. And then there’s his luxury yacht, Beethoven.

But he’s also put his money toward philanthropic efforts, tennis centers, and property investments.

From his vacations to his cars, see how Nadal spends his millions.
