Interestingly, Jelena Jankovic (a former #1) is endorsed by a Chinese company, Anta. I wonder if Yani's POY win will bring offers from Mainland companies wanting a piece of her. Of course the whole Taiwan-PRC thing can be tricky, especially if offers from Mainland companies come with strings attached.

Geez.....and not one of them did a day's work, eh?

Well, Annika hasn't played a round of really competitive golf in 2009/10, so I guess she must have worked for hers.

And so it goes......

Also, I think this list might have been done by Forbes before the year was over in 2010. Just in 2010 alone Kim Clijsters won 4.5 million, plus she won the US Open in 2009. Are these just endorsement numbers or did they mix endorsements with estimated earnings from competition before the year was done? I know Clijsters is far over 5 million for the two years.

Actually I just checked. Kim won over 5 million on the court in 2010. Her 2009 on court totals, playing less than half the year were over 1.6 million. So that's 6.6 million in prizemoney alone for 2009-2010 before even counting all of her endorsements.

Our income figures cover June 2009 through June 2010 and include prize money, endorsements, appearance fees and exhibitions


Sharapova pulled in $24.5 million over the past year, making her the highest-paid female athlete in the world. She earned $1 million from prize money, with the rest derived from endorsements and appearance fees.

You're right your honor. They played the games and they got paid. Their names were used to endorse a product and they got paid. None of them worked!

Oopss! We're in the wrong thread!
