Superstar tennis champion Naomi Osaka once again tops the list of highest paid women athletes in the world, according to the latest Forbes rankings.

In 2022, Osaka raked in $51.1 million, while tennis great Serena Williams follows closely behind in second with $41.3 million and freestyle skier Eileen Gu in third with $20.1 million.

In total, the 25 highest-paid women athletes in the world made roughly $285 million this year before taxes and agents’ fees.

The top 10 of those athletes made up for $194 million of that total, a 17 percent increase from 2021.

Cameron Wagner, Chief Client Officer of Elevate Sports Ventures, told Forbes: “I think everybody’s seeing a tremendous amount of momentum with women’s sports and women’s sports sponsorships.

“We’ve made a ton of progress. We have a ton of progress left to be made, but brands are starting to see the value in women’s sports here and today as a driver of their business.”
