How Much is Serena worth?

Serena is in the process of negotiating a new contract with Puma. the figure of 60 million dollars for 5 years has been tossed around on some other boards. So what do you all think? If Venus is worth $40 mil for 5 years, what is Serena really worth?

Thoughts anyone?

Serena's worth $50 million over 5 years at least (with incentives).

She may deserve it, but I dont think any company could do that lucrative contract. 60 million Sounds huge to me. maybe for press release only. Its just Puma. Not even Adidas,Nike or Fila could do that.

nice to see everybody getting along. Serena should not get more than Venus I think especially since Venus maybe helped Serena to win these last two grand slams. Venus get it together in New York!!!

Serena will definitely get more than 40 mil probably around 50 mil. Plus she is worth every penny. Before she hangs up those gold sneaks she will be one of the greatest tennis players ever. Don't forget she is only 21, did not play juniors, and has averaged only 8 or 9 tournies a year. Her best years are in front of her so the sponsors had better get on board. Go get them Rena the Princess Of Power!

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

Yeah I know her birthday is in September so rounding up seemed like the thing to do.

I saw that interview on CNN when Serena said she & Venus plan to take over the WTA Tour. I guess it's started.
She's worth as much as she can get. 60 Mill sounds good.
Venus can go for 100 Million next year.

What you said is completely ridiculous. Serena'd the number one player right now, and she worths NOW more than Venus. And all companies wants to have a contract with her. Serena played better in all those Grand Slams finals, and Venus didn't. I don't think she helped her to win Wimbledon, cause as everyone says Venus looked extremely down after that....
