New Delhi/IBNS: India's badminton star PV Sindhu has been featured as the only player in the top 25 Forbes' annual list of the highest-paid female athletes in the world.

Sindhu, who won the 2016 Tokyo Olympics silver medallist, has bagged the 12th spot in the list, which is topped by Japanese tennis star Naomi Osaka.

The 27-year-old made $7 million of her total earnings of $7.1 million from off-court sources, having won a singles gold and doubles silver at the Commonwealth Games earlier this year in Birmingham, said the report.

For the third straight year, Osaka has topped the Forbes' annual list of the World's highest-paid female athletes. The list is dominated by tennis players once again.

Following Osaka, there is a pack of seven tennis players who are placed inside the list's Top 10, including Serena Williams, Emma Raducanu, Iga Swiatek, Venus Williams, Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula.
