American Coco Gauff is the highest-paid athlete of 2023 according to the American sports media company Sportico, the official WTA website reports. The 19-year-old tennis star, number 3 in the world rankings of women’s tennis, earned an estimated $22.7 million (21 million euros). Her successes on the tennis court, including victory at the US Open, earned her 6.7 million dollars (6.2 million euros). The remaining 16 million dollars (14.8 million euros) came from advertising contracts.

Another tennis player, the Polish world number 1 Iga Swiatek, is in second place with an income of 21.9 million dollars (20.3 million euros). More surprising is the third place of the Chinese-American freestyle skier Eileen Gu, who was able to credit her bank account with 20 million dollars (18.5 million euros).

Tennis players occupy the next five places, with Emma Raducanu, Naomi Osaka, Aryna Sabalenka, Elena Rybakina and Jessica Pegula in this order.

The record amount earned by a sports star in one year is still that of Japan’s Naomi Osaka with around 55.2 million dollars (51 million euros) in 2021.
