In terms of prize money, yes. But endorsements, no where close to Sharapova and Na, even Woz will have more than her.
First her own country isnt particular rich so no local companies can sponsor her. Secondly, those international brands are not really that much supportive to her, can you see any commercials with her? On TV? I believe there will not be much as they know she is unpopular with fans. No way she can have the previlage that Na have, which is allowing sponsor names on a Nike shirt...
