Serena Williams 2021: Net Worth and Endorsements (UPDATED) Wealthy Woman

Published

on

American legend, Serena Williams, was born to Oracene Price and Richard Williams in Michigan, USA on September 26, 1981. She was initially coached by her father Richard and helped on her way by elder sister Venus Williams, who guided her. Both sisters were home-schooled by their father.

 

 

The Williams sisters built their tennis base in Compton and later joined the Rick Macci Academy in West Palm Beach, Florida.

As Richard’s coaching techniques were not in sync with those of Macci’s, he pulled his daughters out of the academy and, from then on, took over all coaching at their home.

Currently, Serena Williams is undoubtedly one of the best tennis players in the world with an unparalleled legacy in the sport. It is said that she could even rival her male counterparts. She has claimed 23 Grand Slam titles and is the oldest female player to be ranked as World Number one.

Serena Williams’ Records
As mentioned earlier, the American has numerous records to her name. She has claimed a grand total of 73 singles titles and 23 doubles titles. She has even bagged Olympic Gold medals at Sydney, Beijing, and London (2) Olympics.

Williams won her first Grand Slam at US Open 1999. In 2002-03 from French Open 2002 to Australian Open 2003, she attained the ‘Serena Slam’ by pulling off all four Majors in a row.

The American ace did it again in 2014-15.

Williams has won 39 Grand Slam titles in total, which is the second-highest in the Open Era (23 in singles, 14 in women’s doubles, and two in mixed doubles).

Following her triumph at the Australian Open 2017, Serena went on maternal leave. She returned to the tour at Wimbledon 2018, where she reached the finals.

As a mother, Serena has reached four Grand Slam finals but is yet to win a Slam.

At Auckland Open 2020, Williams won her first title as a mother. With that title, she has won at least one title in four separate decades.

Throughout her thriving career, Williams was engaged in numerous on-court outbursts, and that has led her to pay hefty fines.

She was fined $17,500 during the US Open 2018 final for her series of meltdowns.

Williams’ form leading up to the 2021 season
In 2020, Serena won the Auckland Open and also reached the doubles final with good friend Caroline Wozniacki.

Later, she suffered a shocking third-round exit at the Australian Open.

After the resumption of the WTA Tour, later in the year, Williams reached the semi-finals of the US Open, where she lost to Victoria Azarenka. She suffered an injury in that match, which affected her French Open campaign.

Williams’ season ended with a withdrawal before her second-round tie at Roland Garros.

Serena Williams: Net Worth 2021
Williams has drawn a total of US $93,634,967 as prize money from the WTA Tour, much more than any other female tennis player. Approximately, she earns more than $8 million a year through her tennis career.

She also has an estimated net worth of $225 million.

Serena Williams’ Endorsements 2021

Her sponsors include Nike, Wilson, Gatorade, Delta Air Lines, Aston Martin, Pepsi, Beats by Dre, JP Morgan Chase, Audemars Piguet, Bumble, Upper Deck, IBM, Intel.

Williams is also the Chief Sporting Officer for Aston Martin. She penned the contract back in June 2015.

Serena married Alexis Ohanian in 2017, and before their marriage, they were blessed with a daughter named Alexis Olympia. Their wedding took place in Florida, USA. Her husband is the co-founder of Reddit.
The next year, she was a third-round upset in French Open 2019. Later, she reached the final at Wimbledon 2019 and US Open 2019. Alas she failed to win either.

Stefanos Tsitsipas claims innocence after Andy Murray vents anger at…….

Published

on

Stefanos Tsitsipas denied bending the rules with his bathroom breaks during his dramatic five-set victory over Andy Murray at the US Open.

Scot Murray, 34, blasted the Greek third seed for the “nonsense” and said he had lost respect for him after Tsitsipas disappeared off court for almost eight minutes at the start of the fifth set.

However, after closing out a 2-6 7-6 (7) 3-6 6-3 6-4 victory over the 2012 champion in just less than five hours, Tsitsipas said: “If there’s something that he has to tell me, we should speak, the two of us, to kind of understand what went wrong.

I don’t think I broke any rules. I played by the guidelines

Stefanos Tsitsipas
“I don’t think I broke any rules. I played by the guidelines, how everything is. I don’t know how my opponent feels when I’m out there playing the match. It’s not really my priority.

“As far as I’m playing by the rules and sticking to what the ATP says is fair, then the rest is fine. I have nothing against him. Absolutely nothing.”

Murray’s defeat, and that of Marin Cilic, who had to retire at two sets all against Philipp Kohlschreiber, means there is only one player left in the men’s draw to have won a grand slam title – the 20-time major winner Novak Djokovic.

Daniil Medvedev, the second seed from Russia, got his bid for a maiden grand slam title off to a confident start by beating Richard Gasquet in straight sets.

The 25-year-old roared past Frenchman Gasquet 6-4 6-3 6-1 in less than two hours.

RBA drops just games to advance to Round 2.

Nick Kyrgios won just seven games as his campaign came to an end at the hands of Roberto Bautista Agut.

Australian Kyrgios threw in his usual tweeners and underarm serves but Bautista Agut, the unflappable 18th seed from Spain, was too solid as he ran out 6-3 6-4 6-0 winner.

Andrey Rublev, the Russian fifth seed, is safely through after a straight-sets win over Croatian veteran Ivo Karlovic.

Usain Bolt reveals he’s ‘always’ had a crush on Beyoncé and he was starstruck to meet her

Published

on

He may hold the title as the fastest man in the world, but even Usain Bolt gets nervous once in a while, especially when it comes to meeting beautiful women. Speaking to Lorraine Kelly on Friday morning, the nine-time Olympic gold medallist revealed that he has a crush on none other than Beyoncé.

The sporting legend revealed his celebrity crush live on Lorraine

“Because I was always a fan, I’ve always had a crush on Beyoncé, so I’ve always had a conversation I would have [in my head] and when I met her I was like [stares open-eyed] ‘hi’,” he told the day time host. “I could tell I was looking at her weird because she was looking at me like, ‘why is he staring at me’. It was fun though.”

President Obama also has an affect on the 30-year-old, who admitted: “When I met Obama that was also massive for me.”

Usain was on Lorraine to chat about his new documentary I Am Bolt, which follows the sporting legend in the 18 months leading up to his historical Olympic triple win in Rio this year.

Talking about his training, Usain revealed: “People always say, ‘you make it look so easy, I could probably do it’ and I’m like, ‘no, no’. So to make people see the work that I put in and the strain that goes in, mentally and physically. I wanted people to see all of that so they could understand me better and to see the work I put in is no joke.”

The Olympic champion also shut down rumours that he was engaged to his main crush, girlfriend of two years, Kasi Bennett, following a heavily hinted Snapchat image of the couple on holiday. The sweet snap was accompanied by the caption “She said yes”, complete with emojis of a bride and a love heart.

“I’m not engaged. Me and my girlfriend, we went on a trip to Bora Bora and we took a picture and somebody edited my Snapchat, and edited it, and it said, ‘she said yes’ with a ring and a mad face and stuff and I was like [shocked face], it was well done though. It was well done, you know what I mean,” he explained.

Despite there being no talk of wedding bells anytime soon, it hasn’t stopped Usain’s mum from hoping she will be a grandmother in the near future. “My mum is pressuring me. I was like, ‘mum just let me retire and I’ll get there,'” he said.

Unbelievable: Maria Sharapova says she got mobbed in the Olympic village cafeteria

Published

Many players prefer not to stay at the Olympic village as other athletes tend to get a little star struck at coming face to face with high profile superstars. Maria Sharapova got a taste of this herself when she went into the cafeteria at the Olympic village.

Sharapova is the highest earning female athlete in the world and a global superstar. “I’m usually pretty naïve about like people’s knowledge of me, my career, what I’ve achieved,” Sharapova told the press after her first round win on Sunday in London.

“I try to be pretty humble about it, but the biggest mistake I’ve made in a long time was entering the cafeteria. I didn’t walk out eating any food. I barely got an orange juice. It was quite funny. Actually, I didn’t sign any autographs, it was just pictures. I felt like a little statue.”
