It’s always interesting to look at the earnings of athletes in individual sports, because their prize money is dependent on their success. While some money is guaranteed for participating, you need to win to have a career as an athlete in an individual sport.
The highest earners in tennis for men (ATP Tour) and women (WTA Tour) have been the most successful players, and the top four (not the Big Four) stand out.
The top four money earners have accumulated more money combined than the next 12 players. And that’s just money from career earnings — those four also are the most popular players and rake in even more in endorsements.
Who are those top four earners? Who else has become rich swinging a racquet? Meet the top 75 career prize money leaders in tennis.
