Britain’s highest-paid current sportswoman, Johanna Konta will net £3.5million if she wins the French Open, by triggering lucrative bonuses in her sponsorship deals.
But first, she needs to defeat world No. 38 Marketa Vondrousova in their semi-final clash and then hope to triumph in Saturday’s final.
On top of the £2m prize money for the winner at Roland Garros, the British No 1 would cash in a further £1.5m thanks to performance-related clauses in her contracts with sponsors.
Konta would still likely enjoy a few such bonuses after her impressive run to the semi-final, which in itself will win her over £500,000 in prize money.
