Justifiably, Serena has been well paid
during her incredible career. Forbes
listed the American as the highest paid
female athlete of 2016 — earning
£22.3m a year, more than England
captain Wayne Rooney.
And she has not just made her fortune
through winning matches. Added to her
£59.7m career prize money is £46.9m
in sponsorship and endorsements.
Serena has deals with companies
including Nike, Gatorade/PepsiCo,
Wilson, JP Morgan, Beats and IBM, as
well as owning a stake in the NFL
franchise the Miami Dolphins and
having her own clothing and jewellery
