Who will finish 2008 with the most career prize money?

2008 will probably be the year when someone finally gets the number #1 from Steffi Graf in the Career Prize Money category. Navratilova almost did it a few years ago when she was playing all those doubles tournaments, but retired less than 300k behind. Hingis became also very close when she came back in 2006, but 2007 was not so good and she retired more than 1 milion behind. Then, Davenport was also very close in 2006, but she retired less than 200k behind. But she came back in the end of last year and is looking very promising to get the #1 spot. Henin, who is almost 3 milions behind is also a good bet, since she made more than 5 milions last year. The Williams Sisters could also do it. So the question is: who will have more prize money when 2008 ends?

Here is the list so far (not including Auckland):

1. Steffi Graf $21,895,277
2. Lindsay Davenport 21,849,317
3. Martina Navratilova 21,626,089
4. Martina Hingis 20,130,657
5. Justine Henin 19,002,905
6. Venus Williams 18,173,781
7. Serena Williams 18,109,234

Go Brazilian girls!

Davenport will hold the number 1 in prize money spot for some months, then Justine will overtake it from her, unfortunately...

i'd go with davenport up untill the YEC when most probably henin (or venus and serena) overtake her with the million check for the winner.

Davenport should be able to take over within the next few months. Then Henin will most likely take over from her.

Justine will probably get to #1 this year if she stays healthy.
Sharapova is over $10 million at age 20. If she has a long career she'll blow everyone away.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Lindsay will take the top spot by the end of the month, most likely. Justine is still the fav to end the year on top though




Fabulous Justine Henin

Just imagine if they adjusted for inflation

Steffi would have $22million ALONE just off her slams.
