It is difficult to sum up a life spread with hard work and accomplishments in a short article, but a brief review of the most important one should be enough to help everyone understand how things have come to this point.
Serena Williams won the French Open 3 times, the Australia and US Open 6 times, and Wimbledon 5 times. She also won the Tour Finals 5 times and, since 2012, she is considered a gold medalist.
All these impressive titles had a direct and not at all negligible impact on Serena Williams' net worth. While some attributed them to luck, those who are true to themselves will admit that every dollar was amassed with long hours of training, focus, and immense physical effort.
The passion for tennis seems to run in the Williams family, since Serena's sister, Venus, has followed the same career path. While she might not have reached her sister's success, Venus still won valuable Wimbledon and US Open matches and titles, as well as an Olympic gold medal.
The two have even played against one another on the tennis court, but Serena has always assured the public that their relationship is far too deep and strong to be influenced by the result of such a match, and they consider family much more important than anything related to tennis.
Serena made great use of her popularity to bring some of the issues female athletes face on a regular basis to the spotlight and militate for healthy life choices. Her actions got her a boost of image and consolidated her position as a role model for any aspiring female athletes.
Skilled, hard working and passionate, it is no wonder that she turns heads wherever she goes and everyone looks up to her. Since success is, at the end of it all, measured in money as well, we can just wait and see how much higher Serena Williams' net worth can go, if it will exceed the $150 million threshold or not.
