UPDATE: After losing to Simona Halep that means Gauff’s total earnings for Wimbledon 2019 were $220,000 (£176,000) — more than 200 per cent her career earnings prior to her appearance at the legendary tournament. She had earned $56,000 (£45,000) for just taking part, which increased to $90,000 (£72,000) when she beat Serena Williams. This rose to $139,000 (£111,000) when she made it into the third round, and increased to her total sum of $220,000 (£176,000) when she beat Polona Hercog last week.
Coco Gauff is taking the tennis world by storm! Win or lose on Monday, she is definitely the feel-good story of Wimbledon.
While millions of her supporters are hoping she moves on from the round of 16 to elite 8 status, no matter the results, Gauff is going to be a force in women’s tennis for a long time to come.
Climbing the rankings
Gauff came into Wimbledon ranked 313th in the world. She is currently ranked 139th. The more Gauff continues winning, the more her ranking will climb – along with her net worth.
So how much has the 15-year-old earned so far? Gauff has reportedly made over $200,000 just on this Wimbledon trip alone.
Cori "Coco" Gauff started Wimbledon ranked No. 313 with career prize money of $75,011. She is now up to No. 139 in the live rankings and has earned $220,517 for reaching the fourth round

Before heading to London, Gauff had career earnings that totaled just over $75,000. She made almost four times that amount in the last week and a half.
NY Times tennis correspondent Christopher Clarey indicates Gauff has made $220,517 so far at Wimbledon.
With a net worth that is right around $300,000, the potential for that to grow quickly is there.
You can also bet that several endorsement deals will be waiting in the wings for Gauff once Wimbledon is complete.
The sky is the limit for this kid, and the way she plays at the tender age of 15, she deserves every penny she makes!
Next up – Simona Halep
Can Coco Gauff continue her magical run? She has the public on her side, that’s for sure.
