EMMA RADUCANU shot to fame this year when the then 18-year-old competed in Wimbledon and went on to win the US Open. What is Emma Raducanu’s net worth?
Ranked number 23 in the world, Emma Raducanu has a bright future ahead of her. This year the young tennis star showed her prowess, picking up a US Open win and making history as the first qualifier to do so, as well as the youngest Briton. All her magic on the court has won Raducanu some serious prize money, as well as landed valuable contracts. So how much is the tennis star Emma Raducanu worth?
Emma Raducanu was undoubtedly one of 2021’s sporting heroes.
Hailing from Bromley in South London, Raducanu competed in this year’s Wimbledon aged just 18, catapulting her to fame.
After withdrawing from Wimbledon after experiencing breathing problems, Raducanu came back stronger than ever to win the US Open.
She is the first British woman to take the title in 44 years.
Undoubtedly, this comeback from 19-year-old Raducanu will have brought about a reversal in her fortunes.
So, how much is Raducanu’s net worth?
Raducanu’s net worth is estimated at around £4 million.
When Raducanu served the winning ace, cementing her victory over Laylah Fernandez, she secured herself a hefty sum of prize money: £1.8 million.
Reportedly, her earnings were about £215,000 before her US Open win, meaning she multiplied her net worth many times overnight with her success.
Raducanu made ESPN viewers laugh when after her landmark victory, she confessed the first item she would buy with her winnings was a pair of Apple AirPod earphones.
Speaking to ESPN she said: “There’s a running joke in my team because before my first round qualifying match I lost my AirPods and I was basically running around the changing room like three minutes before my call to go on trying to find it but I lost it.
“I was thinking to myself, ‘You know what, if you win this match you can buy yourself a pair of AirPods’ and that’s become the running joke!”
Raducanu can set her sights higher than a pair of AirPods in future, especially as she is reportedly repped by agents Chris Helliar and Max Eisenbud who have earned reputations as agents to some of the richest sportswomen.
Eisenbud is credited with helping Maria Sharapova amass a fortune of £234 million in brand partnerships over 17 years.
