Johanna Konta Net Worth $4 Million
She was born to dentist Gabriella, and a hotel manager Gábor Konta, and apart from Australian is also of Hungarian ancestry. Johanna’s interest in tennis dates from the age of eight when she began training as an after-school activity. In the course of the next several years, she made genuine progress, and at the age of 14 she became a student of ASC Sánchez-Casal Tennis Academy in Barcelona, Spain, where she spent the next 15 months honing her skills. In May 2008, 17-year old Johanna turned pro, and won her first International Tennis Federation’s tournament which took place in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina, earning a total of $10,000 in prize money. This venture eased Johanna Konta’s dive into professional tennis, and provided the basis for her current net worth.
In 2009, Konta won the WOW Challenger in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, earning $25,000 in prize money, and huge advancement in the rankings, while during 2010, besides several notable tournament achievements, she won her second ITF singles title in Westende, Belgium. In 2011, despite wining three more ITF titles, Johanna suffered a major drop in ranking due to an injury, however, in 2012 she managed to return to good form and in February won the Rancho Mirage tournament which was followed by WTA Tour event qualifications that dramatically improved her rankings. Later that year she also achieved her debut US Open appearance, and ended the season as the No. 153 on the WTA list. All these achievements helped Johanna Konta to add sums to the total of her net worth.
In 2013, she dropped out in the second round of the Australian Open, but made her debut appearance in the Federation Cup, performing for Great Britain’s national team. By the end of the season, she had also appeared at the Wimbledon Championship and the US Open, and had won two more ITF titles including the $100,000 Odium Brown Vancouver Open event. All these successful ventures propelled Johanna Konta to the position of No. 112, and made a huge impact on the size of her wealth.
During 2015, although dropping-out in first rounds of the French and Wimbledon Championships, Konta managed to reach the fourth round of the US Open, and ended the season as No. 47 on the WTA list. After a slow start in 2016, Johanna made her debut appearance at the Australian Open, where she reached the semifinals. Despite not having any notable success at the other three Grand Slam tournaments, after relative success at several WTA Tour events and winning her first WTA title after beating Venus Williams in Stanford, Konta established herself as the British No. 1, and managed to finish the season among the world’s top 10, also qualifying to enter the Premier Mandatory final for the first time in her career, and at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, Konta reached quarterfinals. Doubtlessly, these accomplishments helped Johanna Konta to significantly enlarge the total of her net worth.
At the 2017 Apia International Sydney tournament, Johanna won her second WTA title after which she reached the quarter-final round of the Australian Open. In April, Konta added her biggest achievement to her professional portfolio so far when she won the Miami Open, beating Caroline Wozniacki in the final, and followed by winning her second Premier Mandatory final. In July 2017, Konta reached her career best ranking as the world’s No. 4.
