New York: Roger Federer has become the first 50-million dollar man in tennis.

The world No 1 picked up just over 19,000 dollars in prize money following a first-round win over American teenager Devin Britton to bring his career total to a staggering 30.75 million pounds. Federer, who has won a record 15 Grand Slams, said:
