Is Sharapova Still Bigger STAR Than Both Williams Sisters.

Do you think Sharapova is still bigger star than both Williams sisters Ie.. Future endorsement deals. And spot light.

Agreed. Also I think it depends on where. In North America, Serena and Venus are definetly the bigger stars but in could most definetly be much different in other parts of the world. Over here Sharapova is just another passing beauty imo, she doesn't command the kind of attention that Serena and Venus get.

Outside of tennis she outshines all the WTA roster.

At the end of the day people measure your star power by how much money you make. How many G-Slams do they have to win to beat her in deeds and money?

She is more popular in some parts of the world (Europe), less popular in some others (North America)

Correct.
WS earned their fame and are the most recognizable female athletes in the world, while Maria's stardom is heavily engineered by the promotional machine. You have to give her credit though for stepping up to the challenge and being the star they expected her to be.
Ana has even bigger potential as far as stardom goes, but I don't think she will ever be as comfortable in this role as Serena and Maria have been.

She'd be about half as famous as the WS in Ireland, imo.

Venus Williams
Serena Williams

Williams sisters are more known(THE BIGGER STARS). Sharapova will get more endorsements/money.
