Recently, a survey took a look at Emma Raducanu and her earnings. Ever since she has won the US Open, she has been living a surreal life.

Not all get the same fate as Emma Raducanu 

She has signed deals with companies of great stature such as Nike, Wilson, Dior, Tiffany & Co., Evian, and British Airways. All these organizations are some of the biggest names in their respective fields. Currently, Emma is worth $5 million. She even won $2.5 million for the win at Flushing Meadows. Her fan base is immense, and she has 2.1 million followers on Instagram.

Mark Borkowski, an important British PR agent, termed Raducanu a “billion-dollar girl.” This is quite likely just the beginning of her off-court earning potential and will only go up higher in time.

When Raducanu won the US Open, she met the Duchess of Cambridge upon her return to British soil. Life has truly taken a turnaround for the teenager and if she continues to compete at this level, she is certain to go down in history as of the greatest athletes in the game.

Nonetheless, she is a young girl and should enjoy the moment and take things one at a time. She should not worry much about the future but concentrate on the activities on the tennis courts.

The Australian Open 2022 begins in less than a month. It will be interesting to see how she competes in Melbourne. All eyes will be on the new Grand Slam winner. We wish her the best of luck for the upcoming season.
