Highest Career Earnings In Professional Tennis

By on January 27, 2013 in ArticlesEntertainment

Being a professional tennis player would be a fun job. Not only do you get to travel to the most exotic locations in the world every week, but you get paid a ton of money for your time! Well, you only get paid a ton of money if you're good enough to actually win the tournaments and attract sponsors. For example, both Victoria Azarenka and Novak Djokovic just earned $2.43 million as the winners of The Australian Open. Obviously the winners of tournaments earn the most money, but even if you lost in the first round of the tournament, you would take home $27,600. Not bad for one day of work! On the other hand, with great success comes great expense. The top players on the tournament travel on private jets to each tournament with an army of support staff including coaches, trainers, chefs and more. Those same top players also earn tens of millions off the court from endorsements. So who are the highest earning active professional tennis players?
