Fed + Shrieka make Forbes "Best-Paid Celebs Under 30" Top 10, stay recession-proof

Even though the world's facing a major financial crisis, top ballers Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova probably won't feel the pinch much.

Forbes has just released their "Best-Paid Celebs Under 30" list and the Swiss maestro and his Russian counterpart both made the Top 10 joining basketballers Kobe Bryant + Lebron James, singers Beyonce + Justin Timberlake, actress Keira Knightley, and more.

Here's what Forbes had to say about Fed:

Earnings: $35 million

The world's top tennis player won $10 million in prize money in 2007--and another three grand slams. He recently signed up for 10 more years with Nike, one of the biggest deals ever in tennis.
Shrieka made the mag's "20 Under 25" list last year after raking in a cool $23 million but the Russian glamazon managed to top that number this time around:
Earnings: $26 million

There's nothing like the combination of talent and good looks to woo corporations looking to spend endorsement dollars. Sharapova's Australian Open title this year was her third Grand Slam win, along with 16 other singles titles. She's recently added Sony to an endorsement portfolio that includes Pepsi, Colgate-Palmolive, Nike and Motorola.
Fed + Maria weren't the only ballers on the list: the Sisters Sledge also made the cut with ReRe coming in at 11th with $14 million and V at 12th with $13 million.
