Bromley's own tennis superstar Emma Raducanu is back at Wimbledon today, with hopes to become the first British woman to clinch a singles title there in nearly half a century. Raducanu, 21, has already made her mark as one of the most successful British female tennis players in recent history, with her meteoric rise to fame coming after her astonishing victory at the 2021 US Open.

Despite being a relatively unknown teenager who had come through qualifying, she shocked the tennis world by lifting the trophy just weeks into her full professional career. Her historic win shattered numerous records, making her the first-ever qualifier to secure a Grand Slam title and the first British woman to do so since Virginia Wade's triumph at Wimbledon in 1977.

At just 18, she also became the youngest Grand Slam champion since Maria Sharapova in 2004. Naturally, this victory was a game-changer for Raducanu, catapulting her to global stardom on the covers of newspapers and magazines worldwide. Raducanu was also named BBC's Sports Personality of the Year, and even received an MBE for her contributions to the sport.

Endorsement deals soon followed, with Raducanu becoming an ambassador for luxury brands such as Dior, Tiffany, and Porsche, as well as companies like HSBC, Vodafone, and British Airways. She has also inked deals with Nike, Wilson, and Evian, and has featured in advertisements for Sports Direct, reports Wales Online.

This means that the tennis star isn't just acing it on the court with career winnings of over £3 million; she's also developing a staggering net worth. The Sunday Times Rich List estimates her net worth to be a cool £10 million, and Forbes ranked her as the world's sixth highest-paid tennis player last year.

However, this is just the beginning for Raducanu. Industry insiders are betting on her future value skyrocketing, with predictions that she could amass a fortune over £100 million if she continues her winning streak from 2021. Post-US Open victory, a top sports agent told MailOnline: "She can easily earn £100 million or more. The sky's the limit."

But Raducanu may have been outdone when it came to bank balances when she began dating Carlo Agostinelli, son of billionaire Robert Agostinelli, chairman and co-founder of the Rhone Group. Carlo himself is a promising footballer who spent three months at Tottenham Hotspur before moving on to Stanford University in the US.

The pair reportedly started their romance in May 2023 and have been spotted soaking up the sun in Mexico at Dior's 2024 Cruise show and cosying up during Paris Fashion Week, confirming the whispers about their relationship.

However, it seems that the romance may have been short lived, as the tennis sensation has stopped following Agostinelli on social platforms just before Wimbledon kicked off. Raducanu had previously opened up about her strict upbringing, revealing to The Times: "My parents were very much against [boyfriends] as it interfered with training. When I was younger I wasn't even allowed to hang out with my girl friends."

She reflected on the impact of her parents' rules, admitting: "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."
