Emma Raducanu's brilliant answer when asked what she will spend £1.8m US Open fortune on

Emma Raducanu gave a fabulous response when asked how she would spend her US Open prize money.

The 18-year-old returned to the UK yesterday after her historic triumph at the US Open and became the first British woman to win a Grand Slam singles title since Virginia Wade in 1977.

Raducanu came through the qualifying rounds and tore through the field at Flushing Meadows without dropping a set.

After winning in New York, she was rewarded with £1.8 million in prize money and when asked how she will use it during an appearance on BBC Breakfast, Raducanu gave a very astute response.

“I will leave that to my parents and my team,” she said.

“I’m just focusing on what I love to do, which is competing. They can take care of that!”

The new British number one gave a unique insight into her relationship with her mother and father after her historic win in the States.

Raducanu was asked about her parents’ reaction when she returned home to Kent, and the Canadian-born superstar explained how their drive helped her join tennis’ elite group of Grand Slam champions.

“My parents showed tough love and at the time I probably wasn’t as grateful as I am in hindsight,” she stated.

“They just gave me a hug when I came back, nothing crazy, no big celebrations. My mum made some really good homemade dumplings! But there was nothing crazy or over the top.

“They’re just discreet; their reassurance and telling me they are proud of me is enough.”

Upon returning home, her beaming father gushed: “I am so happy. I am very proud of her.”

It’s been a dream week for Raducanu, who has ascended to number 23 in the world rankings following her success in The Big Apple.

She appeared on popular US TV shows such as The Today Show and Good Morning America, before donning a stunning black-and-white Chanel ensemble at the Met Gala.

Now the athlete looks set to use her newfound stardom to build a business empire, as paperwork to trademark Raducanu ‘s name was submitted within hours of her shock US Open victory.

She broke records and amassed an army of new fans with her trophy success and has been tipped to build on her superstar status and possibly become the first billionaire sportswoman in the future.

According to The Sun, the process of safeguarding her image rights by instructing lawyers to apply to trademark the names “Emma Raducanu”, “Emma” and “Raducanu”, is already in motion.

It is currently unknown when the Brit will next take to the court, and she is happy to rest and recover from her exploits over the last several weeks.

“It’s a great feeling to be back home. I’ve been away for seven weeks so it’s nice to be back,” she said.

“It’s nice to see [her parents] again. I haven’t thought about what’s next. I’m just enjoying it and relaxing and recovering.”
