Female WTA Tennis Player Ages & Birthdays

Full List & Stats

By Jon Crim
TennisCompanion

Although most female tennis players start their careers early as teenagers, some players continue competing into their early 40s, as Serena and Venus Williams have shown us in recent years.

Reviewing the data, the average age of the top 100 female tennis players is 27, while the youngest is 18 and the oldest if we count Venus Williams, who has yet to retire, is 42. There’s no doubt it’s a sport, like most others, that favors youth where players are more resilient and less prone to injury.

This guide presents an overview of the ages and birthdays of the top female tennis players in the world for easy reference, along with some stats I dug up on the topic of age that I hope you’ll enjoy.
