Wimbledon 2018 – Property Sneak Peak

Published on July 9th 2018 by knightwest
With Wimbledon now in full swing (sorry couldn’t help it!), the Pimms flowing and strawberries and cream devoured. We thought we would celebrate by showing you a sneak peak of the player’s homes and where they relax off the court. 

When Roger Federer and Garbiñe Muguruza walked away with the title last year. This year is set to be the most competitive Grand Slam of all time with Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer ranking 1st and 2nd in the world. Just over ten years ago on 6 July 2008, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer played what is widely known as one of the greatest matches ever played at Wimbledon when they met in the final. Do you reckon there will be a repeat this year?

Unfortunately, our two-time champion Andy Murray won’t be playing in this year’s tournament, as he pulled out the night before due to not fully recovering from his hip surgery earlier in the year. 

Andy Murray
So let’s kick it off with the guy who will be at home with his feet up for the whole tournament. After winning his second Wimbledon title back in 2016, Murray has not played competitively since and in turn dropped to 149th in the ATP world rankings. 

Murray owns two properties in Surrey, one in Oxshott and another in Leatherhead. Andy and his wife Kim purchased their property in Oxshott, Surrey for an eye-watering £5 million back in November 2016. The property sits in 28-acres where it also features a tennis court, gym and swimming pool. The site in Leatherhead is just a few miles from Oxshott where Murray recently had plans approved to demolish his £3 million Leatherhead home.

Serena Williams
Serena is considered one of the greatest female tennis players of all time. She has won the most Grand Slam titles (23) of any player in the Open Era. She has won Wimbledon seven times, with her most recent triumph in 2016. Since 2000, on only five occasions the title hasn’t been won by one of the Williams sisters. 

Serena who has recently given birth her firstborn Alexis has two houses in Palm Beach Gardens. She co-owns one of those with her sister, Venus Williams. It’s known as Florida’s golf capital and a mecca for shoppers, full of boutiques, eateries and high-end stores. 


Roger Federer
One of the greats Roger Federer has won the most Grand Slams of any male player in history; he held the No 1 spot in the world rankings for a consecutive 237 weeks, which is the longest anyone ever has. Roger is heading into this year’s tournament having won the Australian Open for the sixth time.

He knows how to impress on the court but also with his property. In 2014 he purchased a £6.5 million home on the shores of Lake Zurich. The state-of-the-art glass mansion in Wollerau includes a swimming pool, floor-to-ceiling windows and large balconies with stunning lakeside views. He also owns multiple luxury real estate in South Africa and Dubai, as well as a duo of newly constructed contemporary side-by-side chalets in Valbella, a town in the Swiss Alps.


Maria Sharapova
Maria and her Father travelled to Florida, the USA in 1994 where neither spoke English to pursue her tennis career. In 2004, and at only 17 years-of-age, Sharapova defeated Serena Williams to win the prestigious Wimbledon tournament.

Having been brought up in Florida, this is also where Maria currently lives. Already a multi-millionaire before her 20th birthday, Sharapova decided to use $2.6 million of her tennis winnings for a home on southwest Florida’s affluent Longboat Key. Sharapova’s two-story Mediterranean-style home offers four bedrooms, fireplace, swimming pool, and a boat dock. 


Novak Djokovic
Novak is currently ranked number 21 in the world, despite holding the No 1 spot in the ATP rankings for a total of 223 weeks. Djokovic became professional back in 2003 but didn’t make it to Wimbledon until 2005. With his performance developing year by year he is now one of the most watched players. 

Novak has quite the property portfolio he has splurged on multi-million dollar condos in both New York City and Miami Beach. His most recent in Miami Beach is the stunning three bedroom, 3.5-bathroom unit at Eighty Seven Park. Djokovic has access to five-star services and amenities including a comprehensively staffed glass-encased lobby, a bar that serves botanically inspired cocktails and a library stocked with a carefully curated selection of books and publications. A state-of-the-art fitness and wellness facility, along with a beachside swimming pool staffed with valets to provide towels and drinks.
