Andy Murray set to become world's second richest tennis player
Andy Murray is all set to become the second wealthiest tennis player in the world.
After his amazing show at Wimbledon, he will rise from his current position of seventh. It is predicted that Murray will earn nearly four times his present net worth, which stands at US$42 million. This could place his earnings near US$160 million through prize money and endorsements according to Wealth-X, which is an ultra high net worth intelligence firm.
At present, Murray has US$36 million from prize money and sponsorships, and US$6 million in other assets around the UK, such as the Cromlix House Hotel in Scotland.
He will now be placed higher than Djokovic and Nadal, and only below Roger Federer, who is the highest earner today at US$180 million. If he continues with his current run of success, and with age and fitness on his side, he could reach the top of the tree much sooner than anybody expected.
