Top 10 Highest Paid Female Athletes – 2020

Tennis players absolutely dominate the list of female top earners in sports, while the men’s top ten is a mix of different disciplines, including tennis, soccer, basketball, golf and American football. Male and female sports superstars, including Osaka and Williams, earn the most money through endorsement deals, not prize money, making public appeal just as important for high earners as athletic ability.

Naomi Osaka is the highest-paid female athlete in the world. With total earnings of around $37.4 million, Osaka also broke the record for the most money ever earned by a female athlete in a year set by Maria Sharapova in 2015, when the Russian tennis player made $29.7 million.
