Ernest Gulbis of WTA?

I was wondering if there is a Top 100 WTA player who's family is rich without her tennis money?
It's actually interesting, 'cause tennis is considered rich people sports, but I'm not sure that rich people kids are making it big professional...

Re: Ernest Gulbis of WTA?

She's not Top 100 yet, but Jessica Pegula's Dad is a billionnaire, which is probably why she has Michael Joyce as a coach.

* 2008 * 2012 * Maria Sharapova * 2004 * 2006 *
* Ivanovic * Watson * BMS * Gavrilova * Voskoboeva * Robson * Kvitova * Mladenovic * Lisicki * FutureGoat Konjuh


Elena Baltacha. Never forgotten.

Anna Chakvetadze I believe.

Young American Jessie Pegula too. Her father owns an NHL team.

Well she was quite good in IW...

It's kinda funny, 'cause I've heard like a million times that young & talented players give up on tennis 'cause of money problem...but I rarely see someone who's parents are loaded being a good player.

P.S. Isn't Zahlavova's dad a "drug lord"?

Former top 50 Emmanuelle Gagliardi was megarich too.

She played 8 WTA semifinals from 1997 to 2003 (including 2002 Indian Wells). Lost them all

I loved her! Didn't she make to RG QF or R16, losing to Likhovtseva who made it to SF that year?
Gagliardi had some nice and clean shots...

Barbie has to come from money with an attitude like that. She screams "spoilt rotten"

R16 and she lost to Karatancheva, not Likhovtseva. She didn't play a Top 70 player and got to R16
