Emma Raducanu is a British- Canadian professional tennis player. She reached a career-high ranking of No. 11 by the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) on 25 April 2022, and is the current British No. 1.

Emma Raducanu’s ethnicity is a symbol of globalization. Her father, Ian Raducanu, hails from Bucharest, Romania. Her mother, Renee, hails from Shenyang in China. At the age of 2, she moved to Great Britain. Emma Raducanu started playing Tennis at the age of 5. She attended Newstead Wood School in Orpington in London.

Raducanu is the reigning US Open champion and the first British woman to win a Grand Slam singles title since Virginia Wade in the 1977 Wimbledon Championships. She beat the Canadian teenager Leylah Fernandez in the final.


Raducanu made her International Tennis Federation (ITF) debut in Liverpool at the Nike Junior International (Grade-5 event) after having entered on her 13th birthday, the earliest allowed age of entry. She subsequently won the tournament eight days later and became the youngest ever winner of an ITF Under-18 tournament. Her ITF junior success continued in 2017 with two titles in February at the Yonex ITF Hamburg and ITF Oslo Open Grade-4 events.

Raducanu won the ITF Chandigarh Lawn Tennis girls' tournament in January 2018. In 2018, she won ITF Grade-3 at Chandigarh and Grade-2 junior tournaments at New Delhi both in India. Raducanu defeated Diana Khodan of Ukraine in the final at Chandigarh, held at the Lawn Tennis Association Stadium, where she won in straight sets. She won two additional titles the following month, four in total for 2018 and seven over the course of her junior career, with wins at the Biotehnos Cup and Šiauliai Open Grade-2 events.

Later that year, she reached the girls' singles quarterfinals at both the Wimbledon Championships and the US Open. At Wimbledon, Raducanu defeated Leylah Fernandez in the second round, a victory she would repeat in the (senior) US Open final three years later.

Raducanu turned professional in 2018. She alternated between junior and professional tournaments during 2018 and 2019.


Emma Raducanu’s Net Worth is close to USD 6 million. Her US Open triumph propelled her into the elite list of athletes who have a net worth in the high millions. Raducanu won over USD 2 million when she clinched the title in Flushing Meadows. Since she has actively played in only one season at the top level, this is the beginning of something special.


Nike provides her clothing and shoes for the tournaments. At the US Open, she wore Nike’s Fall Collection and wore shoes that were branded NXT Vapor. The deal is worth USD 132,000 on a yearly basis. Her deal with Tiffany is worth USD 2.6 million, with the British star wearing the Jewellery brand throughout the US Open. Wilson is the racquet brand that sponsors her, with the youngster using a Wilson Blade Racquet. When she attends awards functions, she wears Dior.


On her debut at the 2022 French Open Raducanu won against first-time Grand Slam qualifier and fellow teenager Linda Nosková in the first round of the tournament. At the same time, Raducanu had no response to Aliaksandra Sasnovich as she fell 3-6, 6-1, 6-1 in the second round at Roland Garros.
