Kim Clijsters tops annual list of highest-paid tennis players

In 2018 it looked like the tennis player’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (November 24) that Clijsters is the highest-paid tennis player in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between October 2019 and October 2020, a nearly $30 million lead over her 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 Belgian tennis player has an estimated net worth of $185 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Clijsters Burger” chain) in Brussels, a Football Team (the “Bilzen Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderclijsters - Belgium), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Kim) and a fashion line called “Kim Clijsters Seduction”.

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