Wimbledon Stars and Their Cars
In the world of tennis, Wimbledon holds a special place. This is where champions are made, records are broken, and history is written. Not only are these athletes known for their skills on the court, but they also have an affinity for luxury and speed off the court as well. Today, we're giving you an exclusive look at the fabulous cars of the 2023 Wimbledon champions, showcasing how their passion for excellence extends to their wheels as well.
Before we get into the cars of the stars, let's have a look at Wimbledon as a competition. First and foremost, it's important to note that Wimbledon is the only grand slam tournament still played on grass courts. This gives it a unique feel compared to tournaments like the US Open, which is played on hard courts, or the French Open, which is played on clay. The tennis balls used at Wimbledon are also different - they are covered in a fluffier material than other balls, which makes them bounce higher and slower. Plus who doesn't like an excuse to drink some Pimms? 🍹
And it's these top players who tend to have the most impressive car collections. So, without further ado, let's take a look at some of the cars owned by Wimbledon champions past and present.
Carlos beat the legend Novak Djokovic in the 2023 Wimbledon final at the young age of 20! He will go on to make history. Alcaraz's car collection at the moment consists of a BMW Series 1... but more than likely will be a growing collection after his incredible win 🎾
Arguably the greatest tennis player of all time. The Swiss maestro is a record-breaking 20-time grand slam champion, including 8 Wimbledon titles. Not bad for a guy who started playing tennis on a public court in his hometown of Basel! According to Google, this dominance on the court has earned him a net worth of over £500 million. So, it's no surprise that he also has one of this list's most impressive car collections. Highlights include his Mercedes obsession and the ever-popular Range Rover SVR.
His full collection to our knowledge is;
- Mercedes AMG GTS
- Mercedes AMG G63
- Mercedes SL AMG
- Mercedes AMG GLE 63 S
- Mercedes AMG SLS
- Mercedes CLS 450
- Range Rover SVR
I mean, if this isn't a sign for you guys to get a Mercedes I don't know what is.

Novak Djokovic is one of the world's best tennis players, and he also happens to have an impressive car collection. Djokovic made it into the finals this year with Alcaraz and the match was certainly an impressive one! (Just like his car collection 😏)
Djokovic's car collection includes a number of high-end luxury cars, such as a Tesla Model X, Aston Martin DB9 & a Bentley GT Coupe and others that are listed below. Along with this, and something we mention in our Novak Djokovic blog is the £2.1 million sailboat that he took out to sea after his previous Wimbledon win. Novak is a master of the court and the seas...
- Tesla Model X
- Aston Martin DB9
- Bentley GT Coupe
- Peugeot E208 Sport
- Bentley GT Continental
Rafael Nadal, the Spanish tennis sensation, has been a dominant force in the world of tennis, and he's no stranger to the grass courts of Wimbledon. Sadly for fans, a hip flexor injury prevented Nadal from playing at this year's tournament, but we're sure he'll be back next year. As well as racking up an impressive collection of Grand Slam titles, his car collection is equally striking.
Most recently he's been cruising around in the Kia EV6 GT, an eco-friendly electric model. Nadal is known for his commitment to creating a greener planet, so it's no surprise he's chosen this stylish electric powerhouse as his new set of wheels. It also isn't the first Kia to feature in the star's garage. Here's some of the other cars you'll find in his collection:
Kia Stinger - The Kia Stinger is no ordinary commuter and is a performance car through and through. Nadal has also recently added the Kia EV6 to his collection as he promised to drive cleaner and greener. 🍃
- Aston Martin DBS - Made popular in some part by the James Bond movie ‘Casino Royale', this iconic car is an absolute beast when it comes to performance. It is an exceptional and exotic car that is luxurious inside and out. Rafael Nadal gifted it to himself for his 23rd birthday.
- Ferrari 458 Italia - The 458 Italia is again an amazing performer and is owned by many popular people. It is one of the most agile and powerful cars ever made just like Nadal's technique in the game. It is probably the fastest car in his collection and it surely came with a price tag to match.

So there you have it - a brief look at the sleek and powerful machines that our UK Wimbledon stars drive when they're not serving aces on the court. It's evident that their love for high performance, precision, and style extends beyond tennis and into their choice of vehicles. Just as car financing options have made owning such luxurious vehicles accessible to us, hard work and determination have made these athletes' dreams a reality. From the tennis court to the open road, it's all about loving the game.
