John Isner Net Worth: $4M

Although Isner has yet to win one Grand Slam title — if he did, he could probably score some pricey endorsement deals — he has earned more than $14 million in prize money and almost $2 million in prize money this year.
Isner is worth $4 million.
Alexander Zverev Net Worth: Over $10M Won in Prize Money
Young and relatively new to the tennis world, Germany’s Alexander Zverev is only 21 years old, but he’s already ranked as the No. 3 tennis player in the world just behind Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
He has yet to win a Grand Slam title, but that hasn’t stopped him from scoring millions in prize money. Zverev has won more than $10 million in prize money since he turned professional in 2013 and has added at least $3 million to his bank account this year alone.
Simona Halep Net Worth: $14M
Romanian tennis player Simona Halep recently took home her first Grand Slam title at the women’s 2018 French Open at Roland Garros. Before that, Halep clawed her way to four finals appearances but came up short. Now the No. 1 women’s tennis player in the world with one of the most coveted majors under her belt, Halep is one of the favorites to take home the Wimbledon title.
Although not as much as some of her contemporaries, Halep has pocketed a little over $26 million in prize money throughout her career and was listed as one of the highest-paid female athletes in 2017, taking home $6.2 million. Her current net worth is $14 million.

Marin Cilic Net Worth: Over $23M Won in Prize Money
Marin Cilic won his first and only Grand Slam title at Wimbledon in 2001 as the first Croat to win one of the four major tennis events. Although he’s experienced success, the tennis star has had his fair share of injuries. He missed the Australian Open in 2012 and 2015, and opted out of the ATP Masters 1000 events in 2016 in Monte-Carlo, Madrid and Rome. In addition, he did not play between Wimbledon and the U.S. Open in 2017 due to injury.
Nonetheless, Cilic has pocketed some serious cash throughout his career, earning more than $23 million in prize money. Cilic recently handed Federer his 20th major win when he lost to the Swede in the 2018 Australian Open.

Maria Sharapova Net Worth: $135M

Despite her drug scandal, the Russian tennis star still has endorsements from Nike, Porsche and Evian.
Rafael Nadal Net Worth: $160M
Ranked as the No. 2 men’s tennis player in the world, Rafael Nadal captured the Wimbledon title in 2008 and 2010. But due to injury-related issues, the Spaniard has opted not to play in the Queen’s, the traditional Wimbledon warm-up tournament for players. However, that doesn’t mean he’s bowing out of Wimbledon.
Nadal is coming off the heels of winning his 11th title at the French Open at Roland Garros. Not to mention, the tennis star is also currently listed as No. 20 on Forbes’ list of the world’s highest-paid athletes, earning $41.4 million.
Nadal has a net worth of $160 million.
Serena Williams Net Worth: $180M

Williams made an impact on the 2017 season when she won the Australian Open — her 23rd Grand Slam title — in January, doing so while already pregnant.
In 2017, she was listed as the highest-paid female athlete, making $27 million in prize money and endorsements between June 2016 to June 2017, according to Forbes.
