Many tennis stars experience success off the court. They rake in millions in endorsements. Some lend their names to tennis academies and jewelry. Others pitch products and write best-selling books.

But that's not enough to make this list. 

John McEnroe, Cliff Drysdale and Mary Carillo all have successful sportscasting careers. But moving into a broadcast booth after retirement is a natural transition for athletes. So you won't find them on this list. 

This list is for players who were bona fide stars on the court. They developed a passion for something beyond tennis and succeeded.
