Emma Raducanu’s net worth and what US Open run has earned 18-year-old in prize money

Emma Raducanu’s net worth has taken a massive boost following her run to the semi-finals of the US Open.

The 18-year-old Brit has reached the last four, the first time a Women’s Singles qualifier has booked a place at that level in the tournament, following her win over Olympic champion Belinda Bencic of Switzerland.

It follows her incredible run at Wimbledon earlier this summer, reaching the fourth round before having to retire due to illness on Court One.

Raducanu has been able to continue this moment – and it means that her net worth has been tripled by reaching the last four at Flushing Meadows.

The Brit had pocketed $303,376 (£220,371), according to WTA , in her career before heading to the New York-based Grand Slam.

This has been picked up since she turned professional in 2018 on the ITF tour before enjoying a breakthrough summer.

And her semi-final placing at the US Open means $675,000 (£490,317) will be added to her career prize money, according to figures on the tournament website.

Raducanu will take on either fourth-seed Karolina Pliskova or 17th-seed Maria Sakkari, having disposed of Belinda Bencic 6-3 6-4.

Should she beat either of these tennis stars, a place in the Final would be the prize against either Leylah Fernandez or second-seed Aryna Sabalenka.

If that happens, the Brit’s prize money will climb to $1,250,000 (£907,994) – and $2,500,000 (£1,815,988) if she manages to win the title.



And the latest success means Raducanu has added $675,000 (£490,317) to her $303,376 (£220,371) net worth before the tournament started

This would mark a historic achievement as no woman has ever won the US Open as a qualifier.

But Raducanu is yet to go beyond two sets in the tournament, beating Bencic’s Swiss compatriot Stefanie Voegele 6-2 6-3 in Round 1 and China’s Shuai Zhang 6-2 6-4.

Sara Sorribes Tormo, 45th-seed, fell in the third round before homegrown talent Shelby Rogers – conqueror of No.1 seed Ashleigh Barty – fell 6-2 6-1 on the way to the Brit beating Bencic.
