Yes, she's the highest earning female athlete of all time. And it's probably still true even if you adjust for inflation.

Easily. Prize money alone has far, far, far exceeded inflation in its increase year to year. Let's not even bother comparing record breaking endorsement deals.

Steffi made almost 22 million dollars in her career, non-adjusted. By today's prize money standards, Steffi would have over 22 million just from her Grand Slam wins :lol:

What is your definition of female by the way?
Do you mean those capable of producing a baby outside of a test tube, those with O type blood (o+), or just anyone who looks like a woman?

Richest? No. She made a lot in 2007. I would argue Serena is the richest. Evert probably has more than all the girls put together with all her investments and white collar savvy.

Exactly. There's a difference between being the highest paid and who is the richest, as in who is actually worth more, when all their assets are taken into account.

If Ana holds her #1 ranking she will get a fat payout from Yonex. Someone posted an article somewhere when she signed it.

As for Maria. Wow! How would you spend all that?
