The richest player in tennis has a net worth of £1.5 billion, which is more than seven times that of Djokovic.

The world’s richest tennis player is worth more than £1 billion, surpassing not only Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, but also Novak Djokovic.

Novak Djokovic is widely regarded as one of the greatest tennis players of all time, having won 20 Grand Slam titles and 86 ATP singles titles, but he is not the wealthiest.

The towering Serb is estimated to be worth around (dollar)200 million (just over £164 million), which is not small change by anyone’s standards.

But it’s nothing compared to the fortune of Ion Tiriac, a little-known former tennis player who, despite winning only £200,000 during his career, now has a fortune of around £1.5 billion.

Tiriac, like most ex-pros, went into coaching after retiring, working with legends like Ilie Nastase and Boris Becker, among others.

His influence was instrumental in bringing professional tennis tournaments to cities all over Europe, and he still owns the ATP Madrid Open today.

However, while he made his name on the tennis court at first, the Romanian made the majority of his money outside of sports near the end of the Cold War.

Tiriac took advantage of the country’s fading communism by founding the country’s first privately owned bank, which went on to become a huge financial success.

Let us know who you think is the greatest male tennis player of all time in the comments section below.

He has invested in retail, insurance, and airline businesses through Tiriac Holdings Ltd, and Forbes named him Romania’s first billionaire in 2007.

It’s not bad.

His net worth now dwarfs that of every other professional tennis player, including Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic.

According to Forbes, Djokovic had a record year in 2021, bringing his career prize money to a cool (dollar)153 million as of September.

He also has sponsorship deals with a number of well-known brands, including Hublot watches, Lacoste clothing, and Peugeot automobiles.

But there’s no need for Hawk-Eye to figure out who’s wealthier: Tiriac owns a private jet, a luxury apartment complex in Bucharest, and a large collection of classic cars.

The veteran billionaire is said to have a passion for cars, and he is said to be the only person in the world with two Rolls-Royce Phantom IVs in his garage.

That’s not bad.
