Forbes 2016 Top Paid Female Athletes List

from my blog: Tennis Players Dominate Forbes 2016 List Of Top Paid Female Athletes With Serena Williams Coming In At #1

#1 SERENA WILLIAMS (Tennis), $28.9 Million

After an 11-year reign as the top female money earner in sports, counting endorsements combined with prizemoney, the provisionally suspended Maria Sharapova fell to #2 as 21-time singles Major winner Serena Williams tops the Forbes 2016 list, measuring money over the last 12 months. Considering that some of her sponsors have at least temporarily abandoned her and she’s not currently playing, it’s possible Masha could fall out of the top 10 altogether next year. That said, she didn’t slip too far this time, dropping to #2. Mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey came in at #3, edging race car driver Danica Patrick who settled for #4. The rest of the top 10, like Serena and Sharapova, are tennis players.

#2 MARIA SHARAPOVA (Tennis), $21.9 Million

#3 RONDA ROUSEY (Mixed Martial Arts), $14 Million

#4 DANICA PATRICK (Auto Racing), $13.9 Million

#5 AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA (Tennis), $10.2 Million

#6 CAROLINE WOZNIACKI (Tennis), $8 Million

#7 GARBINE MUGURUZA (Tennis), $7.6 Million

#8 ANA IVANOVIC (Tennis), $7.4 Million

#9 VICTORIA AZARENKA (Tennis), $6.6 Million

#10 EUGENIE BOUCHARD (Tennis), $6.2 Million
