SINGAPORE, Jan. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Wealth-X estimates the net worth of Chinese professional tennis player Li Na to be US$40 million after her singles win at the Australian Open last weekend.

The 31-year-old, fourth seed Chinese player became the first Asian to win the Australian Open when she triumphed over Dominika Cibulka of Slovakia  7-6 (7/3), 6-0 in the women's final on Saturday. She also became the oldest winner of the tournament's women's title, a record previously held by Margaret Court who was 30 when she won in 1973.
