Emma Raducanu’s staggering net worth and romance with billionaire's son

Emma Raducanu is back at Wimbledon as she looks to become the first British woman to win a singles competition there in nearly 50 years.

The 21-year-old is already the most successful female British tennis player of recent times, having been catapulted to superstardom with her sensational win at the 2021 US Open. Having come through qualifying, Raducanu was a largely unknown teenager but stunned the tennis world to lift the trophy just a matter of weeks into her full professional career.

That historic win saw her break a host of records as she became the first ever qualifier to win a Grand Slam title and the first British woman to do since Virginia Wade won Wimbledon in 1977. At 18, she was also the youngest Grand Slam champion since Maria Sharapova in 2004.

Of course, winning that title was life-changing for Raducanu in more ways than one as she became an overnight star and the golden girl of world tennis. She was soon on the front of every newspaper and magazine, named the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year and was even awarded an MBE for her services to the sport.

Endorsement deals also came flooding in and she soon became an ambassador for luxury brands including Dior, Tiffany and Porsche, as well as the likes of HSBC, Vodafone and British Airways. Raducanu has also signed deals with Nike, Wilson and Evian, while she has appeared in ads for Sports Direct too.

All this means that, in addition to her career winnings which stand at just over £3 million, Raducanu is reported to have a staggering net worth. According to the Sunday Times Rich List, it is estimated to be around £10 million, with Forbes last year naming her as the sixth highest-paid tennis player in the world.

However, even bigger things are set to come for the British star, with experts predicting that she could one day be worth in excess of a whopping £100 million, if she can replicate the success she enjoyed in 2021. After she won the US Open, a leading sports agent told MailOnline: "She can easily earn £100 million or more. The sky's the limit."

But if Raducanu thought she was well-off, she was outdone when she started dating Carlo Agostinelli, the son of billionaire Robert Agostinelli, who made his huge fortune as the chairman and co-founder of private equity firm Rhone Group. Agostinelli is a promising footballer who spent three months on the books of Tottenham Hotspur before moving to the US and representing Stanford University.

The couple are reported to have first started dating in May 2023 and were seen on trips together, including to Mexico as they attended Dior's 2024 Cruise show. They were also seen walking arm-in-arm and smiling together at Paris Fashion Week as their romance was confirmed.

However, they appear to have now gone their separate ways, with the tennis star unfollowing Agostinelli on social media just weeks ahead of Wimbledon. Raducanu has previously spoken about how her parents imposed a 'boyfriend ban' on her when she was younger, in order to keep her focused on her training.

"My parents were very much against [boyfriends] as it interfered with training," she told The Times. "When I was younger I wasn't even allowed to hang out with my girl friends.

"A lot of the time I was very resentful. But it made me very confident and comfortable in my own company, which is also a big strength."
