4. Maria Sharapova

Earnings: $27.1 million

Sharapova earned $5.1 million in prize money over the past 12-months as she racked up four tournament wins, including a French Open title that completed a career Grand Slam. She earns four times that off the court from appearances and sponsors Evian, Head, Nike, Samsung and Tag Heuer. This will be Sharapova's first Olympics and she will be the first woman to ever carry the flag for Russia in the opening ceremonies. (AFP/Getty Images)
