Report claims to reveal how much money Emma Raducanu has collected since US Open win
Emma Raducanu has become a global superstar since her US Open win last September and now a report has revealed how much she might have earned from her breakthrough success.
Raducanu was still working on her A-Level schools exams this time last year, before she exploded to the top of the tennis ladder with a run to the fourth round of Wimbledon and then her remarkable Grand Slam win in New York.
Sponsorship deals with Porsche, Tiffany and Co, British Airways, Evian, Dior and Vodafone has flowed for Raducanu since, with the Daily Mail reporting her wealth has ballooned to £12million in the last few months.
“Accounts for Emma Raducanu’s company, Harbour 6 limited, show she had total assets of £55,682 but owed creditors £54,88, leaving her with around £795,” read the report, reflecting on her finances a year ago. “A further £750 was subtracted as ‘provision for liabilities’ leaving her with £44.
“The accounts show how vertiginous her rise has been; she’s come from barely making any money to winning £1.8 million in prize money at the US Open and then signing big money endorsement deals with companies including Porsche, Evian and Dior.”
While the figures cannot be verified, Raducanu has jumped into the millionaire stakes after winning $2.5million from her US Open win, with many of the sponsorship deals signed since long term agreements with companies.
Raducanu has been criticised for putting sponsorship agreements ahead of her tennis, but the 19-year-old has been quick to dismiss those suggestions.
“Maybe you just see, on the news or on social media, me signing this or that deal and I feel like it’s quite misleading because I’m doing five, six hours a day (of training), I’m at the club for 12 hours a day,” Raducanu told reporters.
“But I throw out one post in the car on the way to practice and all of a sudden it’s ‘I don’t focus on tennis’.
“I think that it is unfair but it’s something I have learned to deal with and become a bit more insensitive to the outside noise.
“I feel like my days [with sponsors] are pretty limited. I’m not doing crazy days. I’m doing three, four days every quarter, so it’s really not that much.”
Raducanu is currently playing for Great Britain in the Billie Jean Cup tie in Prague.
