Despite finishing the year ranked number one in the world, Lindsay Davenport had to be content with fourth place in the final WTA prizemoney earners' list.

Wimbledon and U.S. Open champion Venus Williams ended the year with most earnings from her on-court exploits with more than $2.5 million.

Her younger sister Serena came in third with a little over $2 million.

Rennae Stubbs, 13th in the list, earned all her $686,554 playing doubles and mixed doubles. The Australian is the only player to feature in the top 20 without any singles earnings.

Prizemoney list ($U.S.)

<br />I can't get over Serena Williams who ONLY played 10 tournaments yet she is numero 3 on the list... Jelena Dokic played 27 and she is #7 . Playing less may have ranking disaadvantages, but it definitely doesn't affect Rena's pocket <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">

What that must mean is when Serena does show up she is a force. No one outside of the top ten has a chance. Actually since just before the U.S. Open even the top ten (Not counting big Sis) stands much of a chance.
