Sharapova left the ranking of the highest paid athletes Forbes


For the first time in 12 years, Russian tennis player Maria Sharapova was not included in the ranking of the highest paid athletes in the world according to Forbes magazine.

American tennis player Serena Williams, who earned $ 27 million in 2017, retained the first place in the ranking until she went on maternity leave.

The second place in the ranking was taken by the German tennis player Angelique Kerber with an income of $12.6 million.

On the third line settled the American racing driver Danica Patrick, who was able to earn $12.2 million this year.

As the newspaper notes, for the first time since 2005, Maria Sharapova did not enter the top 10 highest paid athletes in the world due to a long suspension against the backdrop of an anti-doping scandal, continuing her career only in the spring of 2017.
