Is Justine the money leading 'sport' lady this year?

I'm wondering if Justine is on the top spot of the sportswomen that earned the most this year?

As far as monies on the tour, I believe the answer is yes, but overall, Serena or Venus will end the year as the highest earning female sprtswoman due to their endorsements.

Serena's WTA earnings were close to 4,000,000 (I think 3.9 million).

What do you think Venus and Serena do, steal?
they earned it by being in commercials.
if justine happens to be not marketable, that's her damn fault, Venus and Serena are everywhere, that's not easy...
however, Justine needs to be congratulated for fighting and being entered in tournaments throughout the whole year, something that Venus and Serena haven't done YET, although next year I see a huge change in the amount Venus and Serena play, they will certainly be eager to regain the #1 and #2.
So don't take a way something from Venus and Serena.
On a side note, it's not like Hingis 'earned' her #1 spot by winning tournies and beating the top players.

The thread starter didn't say on court. They didn't even say in tennis. Just "sportswoman"

Justine has a contract of 200 millions euros for 5 years with Adidas, so there has to be something marketable about her!!!
