Serena Williams is on a historic run professionally with four straight Grand Slam titles under her belt. Financially, she’s not number one yet, but she’s still on top. Williams ranked at number two on Forbes’ list of the highest paid female athletes, right behind her rival Maria Sharapova.

Via Forbes:

Total earnings: $24.6 million

Winnings: $11.6 million

Endorsements: $13 million
Williams added deals with Chase and Audemars Piguet to her portfolio this year, and  She also expanded her Gatorade relationship to include the sports drink’s parent PepsiCo.
Um…all of the above is for this year alone.
We definitely need some of that #BlackGirlMagic that Serena seems to be bathing in to rub off on us!
