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?

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

when will Serena renew her contract? this year?
Jul 24th, 2002, 08:01 PM
She's worth every penny!!!

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! :cool:

Serena helped herself :) and Venus will surely follow suit in the future... (when playing lil sis)

She deserves every penny she can get because she earned all her accomplishments. Go Serena and bring home that bacon.

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.

Serena is worth 60 million at least, and every single cent of it.

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....

Serena is worth all that she can get, as long as it makes her and Puma mutually happy!
And it's ok if she gets more than Big Sis, for now. When she and Puma negotiate her contract I don't think they will be thinking of Venus, Capp, Lindsay or anyone else, but they will focus on making Serena a happy camper.
Plus Serena and Venus love each other so much, who's to say that they don't share more than what they let us in on, hehee., so it's still "all in the family" and that's all good.:)
