Emma Raducanu says her parents will ‘sort out' her £1.8m prize money

Emma Raducanu has said she will leave her parents to work out what to do with her £1.8 million prize following her stunning victory at the US Open.

The tennis star said she would continue to focus on competing while her parents could sort out her finances.

After being asked about the money on BBC Breakfast Ms Raducanu said: “I will just leave that to my parents. They can take that for me. I haven’t gone shopping yet.”

Ms Raducanu, who is set to earn millions from sponsorship, also stated she had bad habits just “like every other teenager”.

When asked what her parents pull her up on the down-to-earth teenager said: “I’m not the most organised, so I need to work on that, and I need to work on tidying up, unpacking, because I seem to leave out the suitcase even three weeks after my trip.

“I take my dishes after I eat, just the usual stuff. I’m honestly like every other teenager in that way.”

On her first night home she said she feasted on her mother’s homemade dumplings and re-watched her victory at the final.

The 18-year-old is reported to have flown first class on a British Airways flight from JFK airport to Heathrow overnight on Wednesday, before being given a police escort to her parents’ home.

Neither Ms Raducanu’s father Ian or her mother Renee were able to travel to New York to watch the final on Saturday because of Covid travel restrictions.

She admitted her days in New York following her straight sets win against against Canadian Leylah Fernandez, 19, had been a whirlwind.

She said: “I think it’s gradually sinking in a bit more because last night I actually just re-watched the final and tried to relive a couple of the moments and remember how it felt.

“It is sinking in a little bit more but it’s still such a whirlwind of an experience, I’ve loved every moment of it but it’s something that’s very difficult to fully comprehend.

“It’s funny because when I was watching it, it almost feels like ‘that’s not me who’s playing and pulling off some of those shots’, it feels like it’s someone else.

“I knew exactly what was going to happen but there were some very tense moments and re-watching it I was really proud of how I came through some tough moments.”

Ms Raducanu said she felt something was a “little bit off” before the US Open final.

She said: “Before the match I was nervous, I felt like something wasn’t quite right, something felt a little bit off, but I couldn’t put my finger on what that was and I think that’s just usual nerves because of the occasion.

“But then, once I got on to the court, I felt like it was almost any other match. I just treated it point for point and went about my business as usual.”

On Thursday, it emerged the teen had trademarked her name within hours of her US Open win.

UK-based lawyer Anthony Brierley applied to safeguard the words “Emma Raducanu” “Emma” and “Raducanu”.

On Wednesday, it emerged she had registered Harbour 6 Limited – which is said to be the vehicle to manage her finances – when she was just 17.

The teen – who sat her A-Levels this summer – said she was planning to take some time out to “rest” following an “intense” seven weeks in the US – and was unsure of what tournaments she would be playing in coming months.
