Emma Raducanu can be ‘first billion dollar female star’ – but must win US Open

Emma Raducanu could become the 'first billion-dollar female star', but she will have to win the US Open first.

Raducanu has had a fairytale run to the final at Flushing Meadows, and the teenage sensation had to go through the qualifying rounds before even reaching the final tournament.

However, she faces one more challenge in the form of Canada's Leylah Fernandez in the final of the US Open on Saturday evening.

But should Raducanu triumph on Saturday evening, she could be set to be a billion-dollar star.

Marking guru Mark Borkowski told The Sun that he sees Raducanu as full of potential.

"Potentially, I see her as a billion-dollar girl," Borkowski told The Sun.

"She's everything that is really positive about the new icons that this age has got to throw up.

"In the conflicting culture wars, here we have someone who is young, incredibly talented, has a multi-cultural background, everything about her is what every brand would like to get their hands on right now.

"However, I feel the bubble will burst if she doesn't win tomorrow night."

Raducanu burst into the UK public consciousness when she thrilled viewers with her performances at Wimbledon.

However, the 18-year-old crashed out of the tournament when she was forced to exit her fourth-round clash against Ajla Tomljanović with breathing difficulties.

Raducanu recently admitted that she believes the incident was caused by the occasion getting to her.

But the teenage sensation has bounced back admirably in her run to the final at Flushing Meadows.
