Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova are two of the most of amazing tennis players. They have achieved so much throughout their careers, which is why it should not come as a surprise that they have reached another milestone.
Recently, Forbes released the list of the Richest Self-Made Women Under The Age of 40. Sharapova was ranked #87 with a net worth of $200 million, while Serena was four spots ahead with $225 million. These are not small numbers, and that shows how successful Williams and Sharapova have been.
Both Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova have won numerous titles throughout their careers. So, the prize money has played an important role in their wealth. However, that’s not the only source through which they have made money, as they have also received endorsements.
Sharapova racked up endorsements from brands like Nike, Evian and Porsche while Serena has been sponsored by Gatorade, Delta Air Lines, Aston Martin, etc. This should come as no surprise to anyone as they are among the most popular players around the world across sports.
In addition to such endorsements, both players have also started successful businesses. The Russian has started her own candy company called ‘Sugarpova’ and she has also started a sunscreen company called ‘Sugergoop’. On the other hand, the American has her own fashion line called ‘S by Serena’. In addition to that, she also runs ‘Serena Ventures’ which invests in startups.
Both Serena and Sharapova are clearly doing well outside of tennis and hopefully, they will continue to do so after they retire.
