Highest Paid Women Athletes in 2004

Here are some of the top paid women athletes for 2004, taken from Forbes Magazine's annual Celebrity 100 list. Forbes also publish a list of the 2004 Best Paid Athletes which is comprised mostly of male athletes.

The highest paid sportswoman for this year was Serena Williams with earnings of 10 million dollars, well less than the highest paid male athlete for the same time period Tiger Woods who had combined earnings of 80.3 million. The Williams sisters again take up the top two positions on this list as last year. This is not an official list of top paid sportswomen - there may be other women who make as much as these but did not have the popularity to make the Celebrity list.
