Anne Keothavong - 3 time wildcard receiver makes big bucks!
Of the many British players given wildcards for direct entry into the main draws of the various events at Wimbledon, one player stands out for special mention.

She lost in the first round of each event but took home a combined paycheck of 13,115 GBP! (approx US$26,377) It’s good to be British!
