Blackhawks player Jonathan Toews and Bulls point guard Derrick Rose made Forbes ’30 Under 30′ sports list, released today. Maria Sharapova tops the list. According to Forbes:

When NBC launches its television coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia next month, Maria Sharapova will be on hand as a correspondent.

The Russian tennis star doesn’t play a winter sport. But there’s a reason the network wants her as a face reporting from the town she lived in as a young girl. Simply put, Sharapova has “it.” Talent, looks, endorsements and an entrepreneurial spirit. The 26-year-old reigns as the world’s highest paid female athlete, earning $29 million from mid-2012 to mid-2013. The bulk of that ($23 million) came off the court, thanks to a pack of endorsement deals with Nike, Porche, Samsung, Tiffany, Head, and others.
