Raducanu, 18, collected a cheque worth £1.8million after her victory in New York, with that set to be the start of her path to becoming one of the richest tennis players ever, especially in the women's game.

Her agent Jonathan Shalit, chairman of InterTalent, has already predicted big things for the Brit and already put BIG numbers on her head in terms of potential incomings.

He said, as per The Sun: "Emma is a phenomenon. She will be the highest-earning female UK sports star ever.

"If the trajectory Emma is on continues, she will earn well over £100million.

"Leisurewear, sports, health, fitness and lifestyle brands will be knocking down her door. For brands, she is unique. There is no one like her."

The list of people in front of the Brit in tennis’ rich list is star-studded, and it will not be an easy task for her to become one of the richest tennis players of all time.
