serena-williams-harpers-bazaar-February-2016

Serena Williams has surpassed Maria Sharapova and is now the highest paid female athlete in the world after earning a whopping $28.9 million in the past 12 months.

Sharapova had held the top spot for 11 years, but has seen her earnings fall to $21.9 million–down almost $8 million from last year–due to a doping scandal that was unveiled in March.

The UFC’s Ronda Rousey came in third on the list, while NASCAR driver Danica Patrick sits in fourth.

Ok but where is her sister?
