Emma Raducanu set for staggering financial hit after Andy Murray snub at Wimbledon



Emma Raducanu will be hit financially despite taking home £226,000 from her recent Wimbledon run. The 21-year-old faced last-minute replacement Renata Zarazua in her opening game of the tournament, bettering the Mexican 7-6 and 6-3 to advance to the second round.

6-1 and 6-2 wins over Elise Mertens would see the top talent advance to the third round to face Maria Sakkari, making light work of her foe with 6-2 and 6-3 victories. However, the GB tennis sensation’s tournament run would come to a halt in the round of 16 when she would be matched up with Lulu Sun.

The New Zealand native would win the first game 6-2 before Raducanu would come back 7-5 in the second. Unfortunately, the set would be the last win of her Wimbledon 2024 journey though, with Sun once again winning 6-2 in the third set to knock Raducanu out of the competition.

Despite being ousted in the round of 16, Raducanu is reported to have taken home a £226,000 paycheck for her participation in the London-based Grand Slam. But experts estimate that she’ll be hit hard financially away from the courts
