Quick Bit: What is Emma Raducanu’s net worth? The Sporting News looks at the British tennis star’s career earnings so far as she prepares to pocket more prize money at Wimbledon 2022.
Emma Raducanu heads to Wimbledon this month 327 places higher in the world rankings and millions of pounds richer than this time last year, when she made her SW19 debut.
The British No.1 was relatively unknown when she made headlines at her main-draw Wimbledon debut last summer, reaching the fourth round before retiring due to breathing difficulties.
Fast forward a few months and she’d completed the fairytale of all fairytales as she became the first ever qualifier to win a Grand Slam by triumphing at the US Open, not dropping a set throughout the entire tournament.
Raducanu is now back on home soil as the world No.11, and despite injury concerns in recent weeks, British tennis fans will still be hoping she can deliver the goods and reach the latter stages of the tournament.
It’s been a rollercoaster of a ride for the 19-year-old since she first burst onto the scene in 2021, and The Sporting News has taken a look at just how much money she’s made so far.

She is currently sponsored by Nike, while her racquets are sponsored by Wilson. Outside of tennis, Raducanu is a brand ambassador for Dior and Tiffany & Co., as well as for British Airways, Vodafone, Evian and most recently Porsche.

Speaking after her win in New York, Raducanu revealed her prize money would go towards helping her continue to compete on the WTA tour.
“I will just leave that to my parents. They can take that for me. I haven’t gone shopping yet,” she said. “I know that tennis is an extremely expensive sport, so it will probably go towards that.”
In 2022, her first full season on the WTA Tour, she’s won $445.2k (?362.5k) in prize money so far.
