    Emma Raducanu's listed company made profits of almost £10 million in 2023, according to accounts published at Companies House.

    ‌The company in question is Harbor 6 Ltd, was incorporated in 2020, a year before Raducanu shot to fame by winning the US Open. By way of clarification.

    ‌She is listed as the sole director and sole employee of a company whose tax year ended on February 28.

    “Raducanu’s prize money in 2023 was just under £200,000, so it is likely that the bulk of her income came from nine major sponsorship deals. The list includes British Airways, Porsche, Tiffany, Dior, Evian, Wilson, Nike, HSBC and Vodafone.

    ‌Company House records show Raducanu's prize money does not always go through Harbor 6 Ltd as it reports income. around £600,000 in 2021, despite her huge £2 million salary from the US Open.

    ‌The reported earnings of £9.6 million are slightly lower than Forbes magazine's estimate of £12.2 million for Raducanu's annual income, which was made in August and placed her sixth on the list of highest-paid female tennis players.

    < Raducanu endured a couple of injury-plagued seasons following her dramatic triumph in New York and underwent three separate surgeries last May to correct problems on both wrists and one ankle.

    Emma Raducanu is fighting hard to get into the main draw of next month's French Open, with five players standing between her and direct entry via her protected ranking number 103.

    It seems unlikely that Raducanu will get a wild chance. invitation from the French Tennis Federation, given that contenders for the tournament such as Léolie Jeanjean, Fiona Ferro and Jessica Ponchet are hovering around the 150 point mark and the organizers are likely to give them preference.

    So Raducan needs five players to withdraw due to injury if she is to avoid a devastating qualifying derby. It's a similar situation to the one she faced in the lead-up to January's Australian Open, when she took six rejections and barely made it in.

    Raducanu's ranking dropped to 303rd place after she lost points. from last year's run to the fourth round of Indian Wells. This is the lowest position she has held since she arrived at Wimbledon in the summer of 2021 as a virtual unknown.

    But she is eligible for three more tournaments thanks to her protected ranking of No. 103, at where she was when she left Madrid last year to undergo surgery on her wrists and ankle.

    If possible. Even though Raducan will be playing in qualifying for the first time since her stunning achievement at the 2021 US Open, she can take solace from the excellent result. She has won her last nine qualifying matches, most of them by margins, and suffered her last loss when she was 16.

    Raducanu continued her fine clay-court form by beating former Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber 6-2, 6-1.

    The 21-year-old was returning to the WTA Tour after a morale-boosting weekend in northern France, where she defeated both home singles players to set up Britain's first-ever Billie Jean King Cup. victory in this country.

    The BJK Cup requirements at Le Portelet were played on the same indoor, unusual conditions that prevail in Stuttgart, so she approached this tournament with useful preparation.

    Kerbere presented herself with a very special challenge: an opponent with great firepower, especially on the right side, but whose majestic movements left her vulnerable to any successful combination of shots.

    Raducanu scored 25 game-winning goals in the match, although one wondered how many of them would have eluded the racquet of a more athletic player.

    There were moments of tension , especially when Kerber put pressure on Raducan's serve early in the second set. In one marathon game, she accumulated no less than seven break points and eventually converted with a volley in the open court.

    Raducanu was also feeling unwell at this stage, judging by the fact that she called a doctor onto the court, but she pulled herself together and carried on to record her fourth victory over a major champion.

    In the next round she will play Linda Noskova, the 19-year-old Czech woman she beat at last year's French Open. “It was actually very difficult to play with Angie,” Raducanu said in her interview. -trial interview, “because she has so much history behind her, and you’re not just playing Angie Kerber, but a person who has achieved all these amazing things. This is really a case where you have to try to collect your thoughts and not lose your temper.”

    “It wasn't the most beautiful match, but I was just trying to think about the next point and not get too caught up in thinking because there were very long games that went back and forth. It's difficult to replicate the demands of a match because it's not just hours on the court, it's the stress and nerves that transfer to your muscles.”
