Just how much money do they have?

After winning Wimbledon in 2004, at 17, it was predicted by the marketing world that Maria Sharapova's win would have secured her $100 million. But now 22, does anyone know how much money she does have?

What about other huge stars like Serena, Venus and Ana? How much have they really earnt (prize money included)?

“I’m not the next anyone. I’m the first Maria Sharapova...”

Hahaha!!!

Btw, by 2002 it was said that Kournikova has more than $110 million, so i guess Sharapova isn't much poorer.

i don't get it, are you insinuating ivanovic isn't a big star? she's at least top 5 in terms of worldwide popularity (of active players anyway)

it's not always your tennis that gets you the big bucks, she is a global tennis icon, everybody who can name someone in women's tennis knows who ivanovic is

Re: Just how much money do they have?

Ana made money in 2008 when she signed on to Rolex and signed a racket deal with Yonex,other than these two signings she has no big endorsements and with her form deteriorating and Justine coming back she might lose Rolex.She is a brunette and they dont make as much as blondes right now she earns around $3mil in endorsements and Wozniacki will soon overtake her as the IT girl,the Dane is younger very popular and if she has a big win her endorsements will go through the roof and money is made in Asia and they love blondes in those countries unless you are winning Wimbledon or USA Open and are visible...these days we hardly see her playing she is eliminated in early rounds.Maria is more marketable compared to Ana and her endorsements show that,Caro is also marketable...who wants to bet on a dying horse

True. As a big-boned brunette with an annoying voice and disgusting on-court attitude, she needs to have a bigger game and win more tournaments to be a real force in the market. As Justine is coming back, I'm sure Rolex is itching to dump her out as she was a waste of money for them with no good results since her signing. Even a slamless Caroline will surely surpass her in terms of marketability in the coming months.

Re: Just how much money do they have?

Well, I can think of a couple brunettes who aren't doing too badly in the endorsement department.

But really, only the women and their accountants know for sure, because the contracts can vary in terms of how long they run, some (such as equipment and clothing deals) may have incentives built into them, and then there are things like appearance fees and things like that are never made public. Even all those articles in Forbes and other mags are based on guesswork as much as hard cold numbers.

I think Lena could probably add another $2 million easy if she grew back her bangs, but I may be alone in that opinion.

For your information,Ana signed a 3 years contract with Verano Motors(a company from Serbia) in 2006 worth 3 million euros.
And you forgot Adidas,brainiack.
As for brunette and blondes comment,did you ever heard for Megan Fox and Angelina Jolie?

Re: Just how much money do they have?

I still say what this damn tour really needs is a scorching hot, fiery redhead.

With bangs like Lena's.

Re: Just how much money do they have?

Tiger just denied that he has made a billion dollars when media has been talking about it as fact. We can therefore conclude that those figures thrown arond by the media is more fiction than fact.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Your are correct. Endorsement contracts have a base pay but are also tied to incentives and various clauses therefore exactly how much is actually received are know only by the parties who are involved. The rest is strictly PR, anyway it is safe to say they are all multimillionaires and living well.

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the SILENCE OF OUR FRIENDS. MLK
