Recently, the list of the world’s highest earning female athletes was revealed, by Forbes. There are familiar faces on the money-list, in addition to a few names that may be new to you. However, it should be noted that no member of this top ten earned enough to make the Top 100 highest paid athletes list released by Forbes earlier this year, as men claimed every spot on the rankings. Tennis proves to be the most lucrative sport for female athletes, with the list dominated by those swinging the racquet. The list has been determined by earnings between June 2017 and June 2018.
