Serena Williams’ Net Worth, Salary and Endorsements

The American legend Serena Williams was born to Oracene Price and Richard Williams in Michigan, USA on September 26, 1981. She coached by her father Richard and her elder sister Venus Williams also guided her. Their father home-schooled them.

The Williams sisters built their tennis base in Compton and later joined Rick Macci Academy into West Palm Beach, Florida. Richard’s coaching techniques were not syncing with that of Macci’s, consequently, he pulled his daughters out of Macci’s academy and, from then on, took over all coaching at their home.

Presently Serena Williams is undoubtedly one of the best tennis players in the world with an unparallel legacy in the sport. It is said that she could even rival her male counterparts. She has claimed 23 Grand Slam titles and she is the oldest female player to be ranked as World Number one.

Williams has drawn a total of US $92,590,416 as prize money from the WTA Tour. Approximately, she earns more than $8 million a year through her playing.

On-court Achievements

As mentioned earlier, the American has numerous records to her name. She has claimed a grand total of 73 singles titles and 23 doubles titles. She has even bagged Olympic gold medals in Sydney, Beijing and London Olympics.

Serena Williams won her first Grand Slam at US Open 1999. In 2002-03 from French Open 2002 to Australian Open 2003, she attained the ‘Serena Slam’ by pulling off all four majors in a row. The American ace did it again in 2014-15.

Williams has won 39 Grand Slam titles in total. Which is the second highest record in the Open Era (23 in singles, 14 in women’s doubles, and two in mixed doubles).

She was out of action for a while due to maternal reasons since her Australian Open 2017 victory. She pulled off a comeback at Wimbledon 2018 where she reached the finals. As a mother Serena reached four Grand Slam finals and she is yet to win a Slam as a mother.

At Auckland Open 2020 Williams won her first title as a mother. With that title, she has won at least one title in four separate decades.

Serena Williams’ Endorsements

Being one of the most marketable players, it isn’t surprising that she is flooded with endorsements. Her sponsors include Nike, Wilson, Gatorade, Delta Air Lines, Aston Martin, Pepsi, Beats by Dre headphones, IBM, Intel, and Chase Bank.

Williams is also the Chief Sporting Officer for Aston Martin. She penned the contract back in June 2015.

Foundations and Charity Work

Williams has become heavily involved in social change throughout her career. She has used social media as a means to express her views. Back in 2016 when the Black Lives Matter movement was flooding the world, she also voiced her concerns. The former World number 1 has reportedly donated more than $600 million to charity.

In 2008, Williams provided aid to fund construction of a Secondary School in Kenya. The foundation also helps underprivileged children attain university scholarships in the United States. In 2016, she partnered with Helping Hands Jamaica to build the Salt Marsh Primary School for Jamaican youth.
