Meet the billionaire Wimbledon star who’s worth more than the greats

Meet the billionaire 23-year-old Wimbledon star who is worth more than Federer, Nadal and Djokovic combined and is related to a famous American football player

pectators at Wimbledon today can be sure of one thing when watching rising US star Emma Navarro on court – she’s certainly not at SW19 for the money.

The New York-raised sports star, who made her grand slam debut at the US Open in 2021, has a personal fortune so vast that the tournament’s £2.7million ($3.44m) winner’s prize pot might feel, well, like short change.

Emma is the daughter of wealthy American billionaire investment tycoon, Ben Navarro, and the tennis star is quietly sitting on a £3billion ($3.8bn) inheritanc

Tycoon Ben, 61, married to Emma’s mother Kelly, built his billionaire empire thanks to numerous business ventures, most notably being the founder and owner of Sherman Financial Group, which has assets such as Credit One Bank.

Emma has put the work in on the court though, carving out a hard-won college tennis career before turning pro. She was granted a wild card to play in the US Open three years ago, and made the seeds at Wimbledon this year.

And she’s already making waves, reaching the second round to face four-time Grand Slam singles champion Naomi Osaka today.

Sport runs through the family veins; her grandfather was ex-Ivy League footballer turned coach Frank Navarro, who was widely heralded for his work at America’s most prestigious colleges including Princeton and Columbia.

Her Instagram account, which has a modest 40,000 fans, is dedicated mostly to the sport she loves, with the odd glimpse into a more luxe life via shots of boutiques and her jet-set life on the Women’s tennis tour.

There’s also plenty of photos of the family pets, including Marti, a shaggy haired black and white dog that seems to hold a special place in Emma’s heart.

Despite being ranked 19th in the women’s singles, Navarro has yet to take home any major trophies or any of the staggering cheques which have been on offer throughout the ATP tour.

However, her run so far at SW19 means she’s already earned around £93,00 for a first round victory, and will see that swell to over £140,000 ($178,000) if she conquers Osaka, who’s climbing back to the top of the sport following the birth of her daughter last year.

Although the American will be hoping to impress and show she is one for the future, there’s certainly no financial pressure firing her on; the impressive family purse means she could retire in luxury tomorrow if she wanted to.

The 23-year-old is not the only athlete in the Navarro family, her grandfather Frank Navarro was a former American college footballer turned coach

Ben has also showed interest in his daughter’s passion, investing in the tennis world first purchasing Charlestown Tennis LLC through his Beemok Sports company on 2018 – which holds the longest-running women-only tennis tournament, the Charlestown Open.

Before splashing out nearly $300milliion (£237m) in 2022 to obtain the Western and Southern Open, which is a major tennis tournament.

The Western and Southern Open saw 19 of the top 20 tennis players compete at the competition back in 2022 and is one of only nine tennis events that is recognised globally as a top-tier tournament for both men and women players.

The up and coming tennis star has already achieved the financial feat most player’s dream of reaching before their playing days come to a close.

Navarro has estimated net worth of around £3billion ($3.8bn) which towers over the tennis greats such as Roger Federer $550m (£434m), Rafael Nadal $220m (£174m) and Novak Djokovic $240m (£189m).

The 23-year-old sports star who debuted at the Australian Open in January just gone is not the only famous sport’s name in her family.

Her late grandfather Frank Navarro was an American college football player turned coach.

Frank served as a head coach for Williams College, Columbia University, Wabash College and Princeton University and even introduced the ‘Monster Defence’ at Williams.
