Who do you think is the richest tennis player of all time?

Who do you think is the richest female tennis player of all time? You might be surprised!

These are just estimates I have gotten from the internet.

Serena Williams has an estimated net worth of around 90 million.

Maria Sharapova has an estimated net worth of around 80 million.

Venus Williams has an estimated net worth of around 60 million.

Anna Kournikova has an estimated net worth of around 55 million. (With Enrique its well over 100 million).

Steffi Graf has an estimated net worth of around 40 million. (with Andre Agassi its well over 200 million).

Chris evert has an estimated net worth of around 35 million.

Monica Seles has an estimated net worth of around 30 million.

Martina Hingis has an estimated net worth of around 25 million.

Justine Henin has an estimated net worth of around 20 million.

Martina Navratilova has an estimated net worth of around 20 million.

Lindsay Davenport has an estimated net worth of around 20 million.

Billie Jean King has an estimated net worth of around 15 million.

Gabriela Sabatini, Capriati, Azarenka, Ivanovic, Wozniacki and Clijsters all have an estimated net worth of around 10 million.

Arantxa would have been on this list but she wasted(or as she says her parents wasted) most of her fortune.

But probably the richest tennis player would have to be Amanda Coetzer

Amanda Coetzer had a net worth of around 7 million but ever since marrying Arnon Milchan(they already had child number 2), she is a billionaire. Arnon has a net worth of over 4.2 billion.

Re: Who do you think is the richest tennis player of all time?

That's not true about the Williams Sisters, or any of the players on this list. All of these tennis players are worth more than what's listed with all of their business ventures, etc.

Reebok payed Venus $40M plus 8 million in bonuses, and Venus has been a millionaire since she was a young teen and then she was getting over $12M a year back then and she continued getting that type of money before reebok increased her contract. And they had all kinds of other contracts with avon, wilson leather, tennis racquets, oreo cookies, etc.

In addition, they have their regular tennis earnings from the tour, plus all of those bonuses that they are paid just to show up for a tournament and that money isn't counted. They also have other business ventures like clothing lines, jewelry, design companies, etc. The sisters have had a best selling book, and Venus had another one a few years ago.


Trust me, when Larry King and CNN did their investigation and state that Venus Williams was the richest woman in sports, they knew what they were talking about. Besides Venus is featured in Oprah's magazine as one of the up and coming sports MOGULs and if Oprah features you in her magazine, she's done her homework.

It was reported years ago that both Venus and Serena together was worth over $500M with all of their business deals. Any body who can add, can see that this number is incorrect, especially since Serena's Nike contract itself is worth $80M.

Maria Sharapova is worth over $90M with all of her investments, endorsements, and prize money, etc. Besides, these numbers have been like this for over 4 years because I've seen them before.

Re: Who do you think is the richest tennis player of all time?

Sharapova has won 25 mln just on tennis court and her endoresment contracts are about 25 mln per year for almost 10 years (it's about $230-250 mln only by endorsements), so even with all taxes and expenses her net worth is more than 80mln

Re: Who do you think is the richest tennis player of all time?

Sharapova and Williams sisters is not only players which is underrated on this list, because ignorance of theirs endoresment deals. Ana Ivanovic for example already about 5 years ago have enough money to buy $5.7M villa in Mallorca where she spending no more than 3-4 weeks per year, so no way that 5 years after that hers net worth is just about 10 millions (which is outdated number already in 2007 in hers case). Also, Maria Kirilenko should be mentioned here, because of hers fiance. I don't know current Ovechkin's net worth, but he is well known as first ever NHL player in history with $100M+ contract (something around $10M per season, over 10 years).

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Re: Who do you think is the richest tennis player of all time?

I've always wondered about this. Do they go to the cash machine to withdraw like $250 and then get a statement which reads....

Card Number XXXXXXXXXX1234
Withdrawal $250

ACCOUNT BALANCE $45,985,662.68

Did You Know Balance Enquires Are Free


I bet they've got a offshore account or three!

What about nana? Didn't she get contracts with obscene amounts of money when she won the french open?

Re: Who do you think is the richest tennis player of all time?

Are TF people really that thick, this is about net worth, not how much they earned in their lifetime. If they earn let's say 20 million a year and chose to donate 5 million to charity and invest only 3 million, that means only 3 million goes to their net worth.
