Inside the glam life of the world's richest tennis star, from luxury holidays to playing on stunning golf courses | The Sun
JESSICA PEGULA is the world's richest tennis player – and is worth more than Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Serena Williams COMBINED.
The American sensation, 29, has enjoyed an incredible rise in the rankings and is now at a career-high No3 in the world.
Pegula reached the quarter-finals in four of the last five Grand Slams but is yet to go beyond into a semi-final – although she did reach the French Open doubles final in 2022 alongside Coco Gauff.
Her family is worth more than £5billion thanks to dad Terry's business in natural gas, leading to the family owning both the Buffalo Bills in the NFL and NHL franchise Buffalo Sabres.
However, despite her enormous wealth, Pegula is determined to make her own way and is doing so by earning more than £6.5million in tennis career earnings.
The star told Wide World of Sport: "When I was younger, it was more like I wanted to make a name for myself and then I realised as I got older, I should embrace the whole family aspect of it instead.

"It was almost hurting me in a way because it wasn't going to go away and I learned to embrace that, kind of have fun with it.
"Tennis is my thing, it's my job, it's my career. It's very separate and my parents don't really have any say right now in anything I do on the court."
The foodie also opened her own healthy restaurant and launched skin-care brand Ready24.
But Pegula certainly knows how to let her hair down away from the court.
