On January 13, Forbes magazine announced the 2021 TOP10 female athlete earning list, and tennis players occupy four of them. Japanese tennis star Naomi Osaka topped the list again after 2020 ($57.3 million), followed by American tennis star Serena Williams with $45.9 million. The latter three earn a far cry from the two of them.
