Money money and more money!

Who's making the most cash in women's pro sports?

Well...

Here's a hint she's a grunter.

Nope!

It's not Monica Seles-- it's Maria Sharapova!

The Russian star's making the big bucks these days as she serves an ace into the $26-million mark.

And right around the corner, the younger Williams sister Serena powered her way to $14-million.

It looks like tennis is the name of the game as Venus Williams and Justine Henin took home the #3 and #4 spot.

Golf sensation Michelle Wie putts her way into the top 5 with $12-million.

Earnings for women’s basketball players and football players are still a long way behind the pay-levels of top-male stars LeBron James or David Beckham.
