Serena Williams vs Maria Sharapova: Who Is The Richest Since 2023?



Serena Williams vs Maria Sharapova: Who Is The Richest Since 2023?

Serena Williams made a name for herself with The Championships, Wimbledon from 1998 to 2022, where she won seven singles and women’s titles in a row.

As one of the biggest sports names in its heyday, it was virtually unbeatable, especially on turf. However, the only player who unexpectedly challenged Serena’s strength was Russia’s Maria Sharapova.

Sharapova and Williams competed in an epic women’s singles final in 2004, beating her former match and making her a household name around the world.

As a result, the media, pundits, and the tennis community began to somewhat exaggerate the rivalry and they were right in the years to come that the two did not have a close relationship off the court.

When it comes to earnings, Sharapova is surprisingly close to Serena and here’s how.

Serena Williams net worth and career income

The American legend is said to have been a pioneer when he said that women are paid well to play professional tennis. Serena Williams’ net worth ranges from $250 to $300 million according to several media outlets.

Among the richest and most self-made women in the world, Serena is ranked 90th in 2022. After retiring that same year, Serena Williams focused more on her business, the venture capital fund Serena Ventures.

It is still largely sponsored by longtime sponsors such as Nike, Wilson, Subway, Audemars-Piguet, Gatorade, Beats, and Berlei. Before leaving the game, Serena had earned nearly $450 million, including $95 million in prize money in competitions.

Serena Williams also owns two homes – one in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles and the other a luxury nursing home in Miami, Florida. The two homes are worth $9.1 million together, according to the Daily Express.

Maria Sharapova’s net worth is quite impressive despite her tennis career

Sharapova is one of the sexiest tennis players ever. After winning five Grand Slam titles in an era dominated by Serena Williams and Venus Williams, she carved out the unique position of being the second best tennis player on the market, largely from the mid-2000s to the late 2000s.

Maria Sharapova’s net worth is not that bad considering her gambling income is $38 million. Roughly speaking, Sharapova is currently worth between $200 million and $240 million, which doesn’t put her far behind Serena, if math and media reports are factored in.

Maria Sharapova retired in 2020, and still has her list of sponsors including Nike, Porsche, Evian, Tag Heuer, Tiffanys, Land Rover, and Motorola. Besides owning her own clothing line with Nike, Sharapova also has her own business venture called ‘Sugarpova’, which has been successful in the confectionery sector globally.

When it comes to Maria Sharapova’s home, she also lives near Los Angeles with an estimated net worth of $8.6 million.
