MASON, Ohio — Simona Halep joined Serena and Venus Williams as the only Hologic WTA Tour players to earn more than $40 million in career prize-money. On Sunday, Halep won the National Bank Open and collected a winner’s check worth $439,700, enough to push her over the financial milestone.
Heading into the Western & Southern Open this week, Halep has earned a total of $40,107,097, a little more than $2 million shy of the $42,300,728 Venus made in her career. Serena has more than doubled that amount with a pot of $94,606,355 in prize-money.
Including the ATP, only seven players have earned more than Halep in their careers. Novak Djokovic tops the list with $158,996,253 in earnings, while Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Serena round out the top four.
