15 Highest Paid Female Athletes 2019 | PV Sindhu

Do you know who the world’s highest paid female athletes of 2019 are?

In the recently concluded FIFA Women’s World Cup, there were a lot of talks about Equal Pay in Sports.

I might be a Mechanical Engineer on the paper, but I was a Sports enthusiast since childhood, screaming at the TV watching cricket at the age of 4. Not much excites me other than sports unless it's free pizza. I can watch literally anything remotely related to sports; Cricket, Football, Tennis, F1, Hockey, Athletics, Chess, you name it! And I love to write too, so at the time I'm not watching sports, I'm writing about it. Or eating pizzas, of course.
