    Serena is so far behind (monetary speaking) despite her continued successes and soon to be in the mix for GOAThood? I am surprise for Na Li, with the ginormous chinese market, her endorsements hasn't tip over--way over, than Madame Sharpie?

    The obvious choice is Sharpie but Na Li's market capacity in China is so much bigger and therefore the rake-in monetary rewards. You can argue Serena W. doesn't quite have the magnetism of Sharpie.
