Madrid Open finalist Jessica Pegula is richer than Federer, Nadal and Djokovic combined

Jessica Pegula will fight for the biggest title of her career when she takes on fellow first-time WTA 1000 finalist Ons Jabeur in the Madrid Open championship match. The winner will also pocket £890,000 (€1,041,570) but the prize money is nothing compared to £4.7 billion ($5.8 billion) the world No 14 is set to inherit from her father Terry, making her richer than the likes of Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal combined.

Pegula has enjoyed a successful career so far, currently one off her previous career-high of world No 13 with overall earnings of £2.9 million ($3,586,705). But the 28-year-old is clearly not in the sport for the money, as she is the heir to her father Terry Pegula’s billions, with Forbes’ 434th richest man in the world earning a fortune from oil, real estate and sporting investments, including owning the NFL team Buffalo Bills.

While the world No 14 currently has just one title to her name, winning the WTA International in Washington back in 2019, she is richer than three of the sport’s biggest names, Djokovic, Federer and Nadal. The trio lead the list of all-time career earnings in tennis, with the Serb banking £125 million ($154,875,793) with an approximate net worth of £162 million ($220 million).

Federer has earned £106 million ($130,594,339) through tennis and has a net worth of around £446 million ($550 million) while Nadal has pocketed £104 million ($128,081,950) on court with an overall estimated net worth of £162 million ($220 million) The Big Three’s combined net worth is £770m. And as well as Pegula’s family fortune and tennis earnings, the 28-year-old has also launched her own skincare business – Ready 24.
