Martina Navratilova 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 Thursday (December 3) that Navratilova is the highest-paid tennis player in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between November 2019 and November 2020, a nearly $20 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 American tennis player has an estimated net worth of $145 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 Navratilova Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Prague Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondernavratilova - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Martina) and a fashion line called “Martina Navratilova Seduction”.

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