Venus Williams Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Born Venus Ebony Starr Williams on the 17th June 1980 in Lynwood, California USA, Venus is a former number one ranked professional tennis player, and still in the top 10 in early 2017, after losing the final of the Australian Open grand slam tournament to her sister Serena..

So just how rich is Venus Williams? Her net worth is estimated by authoritative sources to be over $75 million as of early 2017, most of her wealth having come from tennis tournament winnings, and associated sponsorships.

Venus Williams Net Worth $75 Million

Williams’ family moved to Florida for coaching in support of Venus’ and Serena’s talent, and she became a professional tennis player at the age of fourteen when she debuted at the Bank of the West Tournament, Oakland. Venus has competed consistently since then, winning 49 tournaments world-wide, including seven ‘grand slams’, five at Wimbledon and two US titles, aside from 14 grand slam titles in womens’ doubles and two in mixed doubles, She also has an Olympic singles gold medal – from Sydney in 2000 – and three doubles gold medals, four being a record for both sexes, and from four Olympics also being a record.

Venus has set several other marks along the way, including playing in a record 73 grand slams, in early 2017 setting a record of 20 years between her first grand slam final at the US Open in 1997, to her latest at the Australian Open – becoming the oldest women’s finalist in the process. At one stage Venus held the record for the fastest female serve in tennis at 128.6 miles an hour. Furthermore, Venus was the first female tennis player of African-American origin to be ranked number one. She has also won several awards, including WTA Newcomer of the Year in 1997, WTA Player of the Year and Sports Illustrated’s Sportswoman of the Year both in 2000 among many others, and somewhat differently, the US Open Sportsmanship Award in 2016,

In addition to tennis, in 2007 Venus graduated with a degree in fashion design, from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, in order to help establish a fashion brand with sister Serena – they called their line of fashion clothing EleVen. Venus has her own interior design line too, called V Starr Interiors after her middle name. Williams also completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Indiana University East in 2015,

Speaking of other business ventures, Venus endorses such brands as Tide, Ralph Lauren, Kraft Foods, Electronic Arts as well as sports equipment maker Wilson. The sisters have also become minority owners of the Miami Dolphins football team, which decreased Venus’ net worth in the short term, but should be a money-spinner in the long run.

In her personal life, Venus remains single, but formerly dated pro golfer Hank Kuehne, and is apparently currently dating Cuban model Elio Pis. She participates in raising money for charity, including the Gender Equality initiative for UNESCO.. She is based in Palm Beach, Florida
