"Forbes" put out a list of the '10 Highest Paid Female Athletes,' and EIGHT of them are tennis players, including Serena Williams, who's #1, after making $18.1 million over the past year.

Of course, Serena has been busy with her baby daughter during a lot of the past year, so only $62,000 of that came from tennis winnings.  The other $18 million is from endorsements.

Here's the Top 10:

1.  Serena Williams, $18.1 million, tennis

2.  Caroline Wozniacki, $13 million, tennis

3.  Sloane Stephens, $11.2 million, tennis
