Heather Watson is a world-renowned tennis player and former British number one. Her claim to fame was in 2015 when she competed on Centre Court against tennis-giant, Serena Williams.
Whilst Williams was undefeated, Watson put on a stellar performance and presented herself as a serious contender who was capable of winning serious trophies.
Since then Watson has won over nine titles over the course of her career; from attaining the Mixed-doubles title at the 2016 Wimbledon Championships to her first WTA Singles title at the Japan Open in 2012.
These achievements have helped propel her sporting career and enabled her to break many records - her performance in Japan made her the first British woman to win a WTA singles since Sara Gomer in 1988.
So, how do these achievements equate into net worth?
What Is Heather Watson’s Net Worth?
Heather Watson is worth a reported $5 million - but this figure is likely to be speculative as reports do vary.
Watson was born in 1992 in Guernsey to Ian and Michelle Watson.
She started playing tennis at the young age of seven and at twelve she attended the prestigious Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy in Florida.
As a young player she became well-known amongst aspiring youths.
In 2006, she won the British Under-14 Championship and in 2008 competed in the Commonwealth Youth Games.
From here she quickly acquired a name for herself after winning a gold medal from beating Kyra Shroff.
Her height is unusual for a tennis player. At only 5ft 7in she is below the average height of most professionals, which is around 5ft 8 ½ inches.
But height has clearly not defined her. Instead her agility and court manoeuvres notorious for their “attacking” style have made her a fiery opponent and a force to be reckoned with.
