The 30 highest-paid tennis players of all time, ranked

  • Serena Williams is the highest-paid female tennis player with career winnings over $86.3 million.

  • Roger Federer is the highest-paid male tennis player with career winnings topping $117.5 million.

  • Both players are competing at the US Open in New York this week where the female and male singles champions will each receive $3.8 million.

Serena Williams and Roger Federer are the highest-paid female and male tennis players of all time — though there's a more than $31 million difference in their total career earnings.

This week, both players are competing at the US Open in New York City. In 1973, the US Open became the first tennis tournament to award equal prize money to men and women. This year the men's and women's singles champions will each be awarded $3.8 million, a $100,000 increase from last year's top prize and the largest in the Grand Slam tournament's history. The runners-up will each receive $1.85 million.

That's a nice payday in and of itself, but most of the high-ranking players are also locked into endorsements with top sports and luxury brands, banking multiple times their on-court earnings in any given year.

Below, we take a look at the 30 highest-paid tennis players of all time, based on on-the-court winnings. While the list is skewed towards recent players, it's a mix of both men and women, as well as current players and all-time greats.

Data is from the ATP and WTA tours. Doubles and mixed-doubles earnings are included in total career prize money but are not included in the number of titles won.
