*Maria Sharapova may not be able to top Serena Williams on the tennis court, but when it comes to paychecks, the youngest Williams sister comes up a few million short of her rival.
According to Kurt Badenhausen of Forbes.com, the five-time Grand Slam winner from Russia is the world’s highest-paid female athlete for the 11th consecutive year, with Serena checking in at No. 2.
Sharapova and Williams are way above the rest of the field, with estimated earnings of $29.7 million and $24.6 million, respectively, from June 2014 through June 2015 via prize money and endorsements. Tennis dominates the list with seven women in the top 10.
NASCAR’s Danica Patrick is the first non-tennis player on the list at No. 4, while UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey comes in at No. 8, with total earnings of $6.5 million.
Despite Rousey’s popularity and drawing power, Valentina Zarya of Fortune.com found that she makes less than her top male counterparts.
