Who’re the lucky ones to be called the richest tennis players in the world? Today we’ll talk about the 8 players with the biggest net worth.
Who are the richest tennis players?
The tennists are listed in descending order.
1. Simona Halep
At the age of 30, 23 titles. The current champion has won two Grand Slam tournaments, Wimbledon 2019 and Roland Garros 2018.
2. Venus Williams
Venus, Serena’s sister, made her professional debut in 1994 at the age of 14. She reached the US Open final in 1997, making history as the first unranked player since 1958 and the first since 1978 to do so after just one appearance. Before the Covid in 2019, she spent $9.6 million on a house in Florida.
3. Pete Sampras
Although he’s 14 Grand Slam triumphs to his name, he’s never won a Roland Garros. Adam Levine of Maroon 5 now lives in his historic Los Angeles estate, which has a tennis court and cost $34 million.
4. Andy Murray
Andy Murray has been a professional since 2005 and has won 46 different titles. In 2018, he was one of the first to buy the first Jaguar that was completely electric.
5. Serena Williams
She’s 23 Grand Slam titles: seven Australian Open, six US Open, three French Open / Roland Garros and seven Wimbledon. Although she’s ended her career (perhaps not forever), many of us consider Serena to be the best female tennis player in the world. Her professional career, which began in 1994, ended this year because Serena plans to have another child. Last year she sold her house in Beverly Hills for 7.5 million dollars.
6. Roger Federer
The veteran winner (he turned pro in 1998) was sidelined in 2022 because of a knee ailment. But he still stands on the podium, one of only three competitors with nine-figure winnings. He represented the Rimowa bag brand as brand ambassador.
7. Rafael Nadal
The 2022 winner increased his total number of Grand Slam wins to 22 by adding the Roland Garros and Australian Open. Last year he bought the Great White, a 26-metre Sunreef power boat.
8. Novak Djokovic
The Serbian champion, who won Wimbledon 2022, is now also number one in the world rankings, which is to be expected given the value of the awards he’s won. He turned professional in 2003 and is now the highest-paid tennis player of all time. The Novak Djokovic Foundation is run by his wife Jelena, a Bocconi graduate. Just two years after buying the foundation, she sold a Renzo Piano-designed oceanfront condo in Miami for $6 million.
So there’s a lot of money in tennis! But the dedication of these great players and the motivation they give to millions of adults and children are certainly worth it. Don’t you think so?
