World's Richest Female Tennis Players 2024: The 11 wealthiest women's tennis stars - Sharapova net worth

Tennis players are among the best paid athletes in women’s sport.

Tennis players are amongst the wealthiest sports people on the planet, with a single Grand Slam title earning you well in excess of £2 million - and there are four of them every year, before you even start on the still-lucrative smaller tournaments.

It’s also one of the few sports to offer similar fiscal rewards to both male and female players - with all the major titles now offering equal money (although Wimbledon didn’t until 2007, decades after the US Open in 1973).

That means that women are right up there with the men when it comes to earning potential - sadly something that can’t be said for many sports.

Add in money-spinning advertising and sponsorship deals, personal appearances and shrewd investments, and these court heroes can become fabulously wealthy.

Here are the top 10 richest female tennis stars in the world in 2024, according to CelebrityNetWorth.
