According to the publication, the 23-time Grand Slam champion made the list as a result of her estimated fortune of $224m (£177m). The majority of William’s fortune has been made as a result of her “brain and brand rather than her backhand”, according to Forbes, with the star investing in 34 startup businesses in the past five years alone.

I want to be the brand, instead of just being the face.” In April, Williams announced she was launching her own venture-capital firm. Forbes reports that 60 per cent of Williams’ investments so far have gone to companies led by women or people of colour.
