By reaching the singles and doubles finals at the 2009 Australian Open, world No.2 Serena Williams broke golf star Annika Sorenstam’s record for career prize money by a female athlete with nearly $23 million.

Even if Williams is to lose both championship matches, she would leave Australia with career earnings of about $22.7 million, overcoming Lindsay Davenport, who used to hold the record in women’s tennis, by more than $500,000, and Sorenstam’s total by more than $150,000.
