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)?

Hahaha!!!:worship:

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 :shrug:

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.

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.

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.

Ana is not making anywhere near the bank of the top girls...... Her endorsements arent even near what Davenport was making and shes only made it for 1 year..... Anyways.... Venus/Serena as ten+ year veterens have probably made 150 and 200 million respectively(based off the fact that Venus has been earning about 15 mil are year and Serena 20+)... Maria is probably around that 120 million mark (shes usually reported at about 25 each year) and Ana....maybe be at 30, but i doubt it....

We don't have any facts about how much money they make yearly or their net worth, they never talk about their money and would probably rather have people think they don't have much. What other player tells the world that they don't even bother to pick-up their check after they play a tournament.:lol: Some celebs use how much they make as a status symbol to get more notoriety, but as Serena says, it's the big shiny trophies she cares about and the money takes care of itself.

You can bet a country on it that she's 10 times more intelligent and schooled than Ivanovic :bigwave:

Her childhood was spent in palatial dwellings in the priciest neighborhoods on both coasts and featured a brief flirtation with the educational system, including high schooling at the ultra-exclusive Dwight School, from which she dropped out and ultimately earned her high school GED.

Personal Quotes:

I went to Wal-Mart for the first time. I always thought they sold wallpaper. I didn't realise it has everything. You can get anything you want there for really, really cheap.
People think I'm stupid. But I'm smarter than most people.
I have always had a voice and always known I could sing, but I was too shy to let it come out. I think that is the hardest thing you can do, to sing in front of people. When I finally let go and did it, I realised it is what I am most talented at and what I love to do the most.

There's nobody in the world like me. I think every decade has an iconic blonde, like Marilyn Monroe or Princess Diana and, right now, I'm that icon.
etc.

Yeah,right:bigwave:

Don't think Paris Hilton is dumb, she's one of the smartest business women out there today, though the only side the media will show you, is her dumb quotes and blondish comments.

Going by career prize money, here are the top 10 earners per the Sony Ericsson website:

1. Serena Williams, $28M
2. Venus Williams, $25M
3. Lindsay Davenport, $22M
4. Justine Henin, $19M
5. Kim Clijsters, $16M
6. Svetlana Kuznetsova, $13.7M
7. Maria Sharapova, $13M
8. Elena Dementieva, $12.9M
9. Jelena Jankovic, $9M
10. Ana Ivanovic, $7M

I think for Serena and especially Sharapova, most of their earnings probably came from endorsements and appearance fees. I'm totally guessing but the career prize money is probably no more than 25% of their net worth. For the other women, I think the prize money is probably a big part of their net worth, maybe between 50%-75%. With this economy, big endorsement contracts are getting more and more rare. I wouldn't be surprised if Sharapova loses a few big contracts if she continues to struggle in 2010, like Nike and Motorola.

On the men's side, Roger Federer who's the same age as Serena, and has 15 slams to Serena's 12, has earned $50M in prize money. On the Forbes list, his annual income is frequently estimated to be around $35M, but on another estimate, I've read that his net worth is around $120M. Still a lot of money but if he had been earning $35M a year the last 5 years, he'd be worth $175M, so I don't think the Forbes estimates are that close. I think they probably come in at the top end, close to the maximum they can make, and they probably don't make close to the maximum. It's like that Galaxy contract with David Beckham, where they said he could make up to $250M in 5 years, $50M/year, but his actual salary was only $5M a year, the remaining $45M was from commission from his merchandise sales, and I don't think he sold enough merchandise to make anywhere even close to that figure.

Forbe's celebrity lists are highly inaccurate and and exaggerated. They have been sued by several people for over-calculating earnings and getting people in trouble with taxes. Also, for the person that said Kournikova earned $110 million in 2002, that's preposterous and impossible. She probably earned $10 million at most at peak.

Also, anyone find it kind of strange that Svetva earned more than Maria in prize money? o_O

Maria has more slams and more regular (and bigger) titles. She got 500k bonus from the US open series, which pretty much negate 2 of Svetva's tier I alone, and I don't think Svetva even won that many Tier ones. I think she usually makes it farther in tournaments where she doesn't win as well. How did she beat her in prize money?

Those forbes lists are fun to read at times, but I think you're right, they're rubbish:lol:
But according to them Maria made:
June 2004 - June 2005: 18.2 Mio
June 2005 - June 2006: 19.0 Mio
June 2006 - June 2007: 23.0 Mio
June 2007 - June 2008: 26.0 Mio
June 2008 - June 2009: 22.0 Mio
+ Tennis earnings: 13,092,900

= 121,292,900

You should probably take it with a grain of salt, but it's a :eek::eek: number:drool:

As for Anna's 110 Mio, I think the person meant net-worth. And even that would be too much. Most people estimate that she made about 50 Mio Dollar during her career and still makes a few million every year.

I don't think it's strange that Sveta has more money than Maria.:shrug: First off, it's only roughly 700,000. That's pretty much what she got for winning Beijing.
Sveta may not has as many titles as Maria, but she only has 1 Grand Slam less than her. Therefore she played much more tournaments than Maria (about 50 more) and also is or has been quite successful in doubles:)

I actually looked it up one by one on the same website, and only included currently active players. The list you posted is the more complete one that includes retired players. Very interesting comparison. Thanks for posting it.

Looks like I missed 2 currently active players:

Amelie Mauresmo, came in just after Kim Clijsters at $15M.
Dinara Safina, came in just before Jankovic at $9.7M (Jankovic $9.4M).
Also, Ivanovic actually came in after Petrova.

Yes her results have been horrible for a year and a half, but loosing to the Williams sisters (infact she put up a good fight every time she has played one of them) does not directly decrease her earnings. :lol:She was crying when Vee schooled her at Wimbledon,she had to fake an injury to soften the blow.She was almost in tears after Serena blasted her off the court in Dubai.She will eventually lose endorsements if she is not visible at big events,look at Kirilenko ...Stella dropped and betted on a winning filly called Wozniacki,and there are younger and prettier players like Cirstea to take her place.At the moment Caro is the queen of Adidas and soon Ana will drop off like Vaidisova ...look at how Nicole faded after she started having sex.:tape:

Forbes magazine is about as credible as your average tabloid.Serena was being interviewed somewhere and said its Vee who has a lot of money,and Vee is known to be frugal ....I think Serena has probably $80mil liquid assets and probably $200mil including fixed assets.She has property in Paris,LA,NY ,MIAMI and Vee has a loft in NY,an apartment in Rome and their palatial home in Miami..plus shares in the Miami Dolphins.:worship:

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 :shrug:

based on what? :spit:

She MAY be #5, at extreme most #4, but she could also be something like #12

Well you can do the maths

Puma contract wo bonuses $20 million
Nike contract wo bonuses $60 million

+ MCDonalds + HP + Wilson + career money $28 million.

I think that total is easily over $110 million.

Don't forget that many people lost ~30% of all assets in the last two years' economic crisis, in devalued investments. Tennis players included.

Yea, depends on where you invested. I heard on 60 mins that Pova had investment in Madoff's company, if so that is a total lost.
