Ilie Năstase tops annual list of highest-paid tennis players

In 2018 it looked like the tennis player’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (October 28) that Năstase is the highest-paid tennis player in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between September 2019 and September 2020, a nearly $30 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The Romanian tennis player has an estimated net worth of $185 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Năstase Burger” chain) in Bucharest, a Football Team (the “Bucharest Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondernăstase - Romania), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Ilie) and a fashion line called “Ilie Năstase Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Ilie fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
