Even though Venus is the elder sister, she is far behind Serena when one compares the net worth of both of them. As of now, Venus’s estimated net worth is $95 million. Apart from her on-court earnings of $42 million so far, the 7-time Grand slam champion is the owner of an athletic wear line, ‘EleVen’, and a diet company, ‘Happy Vikings’.

Because of her immense interest in interior designing, she also runs an interior designing firm, ‘V Starr’. Intriguingly, it is the same company that built Serena’s new home.

As far as Serena is concerned, her current net worth stands at $210 million and thus, puts her way ahead of her sister. Surprisingly, the 23-time Grand Slam winner has earned around $94 million on the court, which is almost twice as any other female athlete.

Besides this, Serena is an investor and runs a venture capital firm called ‘Serena Ventures’. As of now, the firm has invested in more than 30 small businesses. She also has a fashion company, ‘S by Serena’, and continues to be the face of many big brands and companies including Nike, Wilson, Lincoln Motor Company, and others.
