tennis players need money

Mansour Bahrami
Kei Nishikori
Maria Sharapova
Roland Garros finalist
Mansour Bahrami
played with a frying pan
As a kid, Iranian tennis player Mansour Bahrami could not afford to buy a tennis racquet, so he played tennis with a frying pan until the age of ten. He trained at nights in an empty swimming pool because he could not pay for lessons at a tennis court. Bahrami was lucky to be noticed by the man who became his coach, and he became a professional player and a finalist in the prestigious Roland Garros Grand Slam Tournament.
Current No.9 in ATP rankings
Kei Nishikori
earns 10X more from sponsorship than from tournaments
The Japanese tennis star Kei Nishikori has sponsorship contracts with Uniqlo ($50 million), Wilson, Adidas, and has advertising contracts with CupNoodle, Tag Heuer, Weider Supplements, Jaccs, Nissin, EA Games, Air Weave, WOWOW, and others. In 2016 he earned $34 million, and 90% of that income was contributed by large sponsorship deals.
Five-times Grand Slam champion
Maria Sharapova
her father had to work as a dishwasher to pay for the tennis lessons
At age 9 Maria Sharapova left Sochi and came uninvited to the Nick Bollettieri Academy in Florida. She was accepted, but her father had to work as a dishwasher to pay the bills. Maria has won five Grand Slam titles (Wimbledon at age 17), an Olympic Games silver medal, 39 tournaments and has reached the 1st ranking of the WTA. She has earned $36.5 million in prize money and $285 million in sponsorship deals.
