Emma Raducanu has been named one of the richest tennis stars, according to Forbes.
The English sensation rose to prominence in 2021 after winning the US Open, the first Open Era qualifier to win a grand slam after entering the competition ranked 150th in the world.
Victory as Flushing Meadows netted the 19-year-old £2.6m, before earning £15.2m in off-field earnings.
And this despite only reaching the second round of Wimbledon this year.
This came following lucrative deals with companies like British Airways, Dior, Evian, Nike and Tiffany.
This took Raducanu’s total earnings to £17.9million over the past 12 months, a figure that puts her sixth in the list of highest earning tennis stars.
Surprisingly, former world number one Roger Federer tops the list with earnings of £76.6m despite not playing a game for 14 months.
Naomi Osaka was ranked second with earnings of £47.8million, while Serena Williams came third with £29.9million.
