Sharapova earned $29 million in 2013; world's highest paid female athlete

Quote:
This winter the world's fourth-ranked tennis player heads back to her hometown, the resort of Sochi, Russia, to serve as an NBC correspondent for the 2014 Winter Olympics. There's a reason the network wants her face on the games: Sharapova sells. She was the world's highest-paid female athlete last year, earning $29 million, of which $23 million came from deals off the court. A four-time grand-slam winner, she's piled up endorsements over the years from, among others, Porsche, Motorola, Tiffany and Nike, which created a Maria Sharapova apparel line. Last year she launched her first independent business, a candy line called Sugarpova, with 12 flavors of premium candies (not to mention jewelry and accessories featuring the Sugarpova lips logo) and estimated revenues of $6 million. "Business has always been a passion of mine," she says. "And I have always had a sweet tooth. ... A tennis career is such a small part of life."

So what's that after paying off her agents and Uncle Sam--any tax accountants around?

I'm guessing like 18 mil after taxes and IMG - which is still one hell of a lot!

They're $6 a pack?!! And people still buy them?!

Best of luck to her though with her other activities. Tennis is a relatively short career so make your money while you can.

Remember, she's also going to be doing work for NBC at the Sochi Olympics. Kudos to her.

Congrats to her on her success. I still think that an athlete having a candy line sucks!

Congrats!

It must be nice to be so respected and well liked off the court.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.
