Wimbledon stars and their cars, from Djokovic’s electric Tesla to Federer’s fleet of Mercedes and Murray’s BMW i8
THE biggest names in tennis have descended on Wimbledon ahead of this year’s tournament.
The likes of Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Serena Williams are all competing in the Grand Slam event.
Roger Federer, though, remains a doubt – having missed most of the year through a knee injury.
Over the years, these successful sports stars have accumulated huge wealth.
And they’ve splashed their fortunes on some amazing cars, from electric Teslas to flash Ferraris.
But who drives what?
The No1 seed boasts an impressive garage.
The Serb, a six-time Wimbledon winner, is brand ambassador for Peugeot.
He also owns various electric cars, including a £102,000 Tesla Model X.
Djokovic has also been seen behind the wheel of an Aston Martin DB9 (£200,000), Bentley Continental (£172,000) and an Audi R8 (£130,000).
While a conservative £13,000 Fiat 500 also features in his collection.
The Swiss legend might not be appearing at Wimbledon, but he’s a legend at SW19.
And because of his brilliance and elegance off the court, he’s a brand ambassador for Mercedes – meaning he has a fleet of them.
Federer is famously the owner of a sunburst-yellow Mercedes AMG GTS (£150,000), as well as a G-Wagon (160,000).
Alongside those classy cars, he also is known to drive a convertible SL AMG (£100,000) and a AMG GLE 63 S (£126,000).
A Range Rover Sport is also part of his garage.
Winner of 23 Grand Slams, Williams is the greatest female tennis player ever.
So it’ s fitting she has driven a host of enviable motors.
From a £150,000 Aston Martin Vanquish to a £172,000 Bentley Continental GT, she’s a purveyor of fine cars.
Her everyday car in 2016 was a Mini Cooper (£18,000), while being the face of Lincoln she also has a Navigator costing £63,000.
The Spaniard is sponsored by Kia, so of course he gets their company car – a Stinger GT that’s worth £42,000.
But Nadal, who is expecting his first child, ramps up the prices with an Aston Martin DBS (£239,000) and an epic Ferrari 458 Italia – a collector’s item that could be worth as much £450,000 today in mint condition.
While like Federer, there’s a Mercedes in his collection too – a £150,000 AMG GTS.
And that reportedly comes with a fetching tennis-ball style paint job.
The British tennis star passed his driving test and within five months ditched a trust Volkswagen Polo for a far more expensive bright red Ferrari 430 that could have set him back £117,000 new.
However, he amusingly admitted he felt like “a bit of a prat” and went with an Aston Martin DB9 – just like James Bond – for £200,000 instead.
In 2015, Murray won a £125,000 BMW i8 as part of his prize for landing the Munich Open.
He also owns a £66,000 Jaguar I-Pace, as well as his first car – the Polo – that costs £17,000 new.
“I enjoy driving it. It was my first car and I’m attached to it,” he said.
Four-time Grand Slam champion Osaka owns a very sought-after motor.
Thanks to sponsors Nissan – she got her hands on a very rare GT-R.
They start from around £115,000, and is what Osaka calls her “dream car” – with only 50 existing in the world.
As brand ambassador, Nissan let her design a host of colour combinations too.
The controversial Aussie is another who has gone down the electric route.
Kyrgios also has a £102,000 Tesla Model X – like rival Djokovic – in an outrageous bright green colour.
A Fast & Furious fan, and former No13 in the world, he also boasts a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon (£170,000) favoured by Vin Diesel in eighth movie of the Hollywood movie franchise.
Nick grew up a massive fan of muscle cars in Canberra.
His brother Christos told The Canberra Times: “Nick always wanted a nice car when he grew up and tennis has given him that opportunity.”
