Jessica Pegula net worth
Following her recent third round triumph, the 28-year-old received a whopping $338,000 (£274,00) alongside the winnings from her previous rounds. However, this is nothing compared to her whopping £5.5billion net worth.
In fact, Pegula is worth an astonishing ten times more than PSG superstar and former Barcelona legend Lionel Messi.
Lionel Messi net worth
Lionel Messi is the highest-paid athlete of 2022, having earned over £105million in the past 12 months. The 35-year-old has an estimated net worth of around £500-540m. However, as it stands, it is a paltry amount compared to Pegula’s.
Jessica Pegula family assets
The world’s richest tennis player’s riches are the result of her father’s success. Jessica Pegula’s dad is the owner of NFL side Buffalo Bills, as well as NHL outfit Buffalo Sabres and other Buffalo-based sports outfits such as the Beauts and the Bandits.
And as it stands, Jessica is set to inherit a large sum of money from her billionaire father Terry. Besides, owning several sports-based franchises, the family also owns a £14m superyacht called ‘Top Five II’. The superyacht has six cabins, which is capable of housing at least 12 guests. Besides that, the family also own a stunning £2.5m gated mansion in Florida.
Pegula married Taylor Gahagen, a corporate executive for Pegula Sports and Entertainment and an animal philanthropist.
All this factors show that Pegula clearly plays tennis for the love of the game and not for the money.
Messi on a possible move
Meanwhile, Lionel Messi was recently linked with a move to Saudi Arabia alongside Cristiano Ronaldo. The iconic No. 10 was rumoured to join Al-Nassr rivals Al-Hilal, where he could reportedly earn around £245m-per-year.
