Recently crowned US Open champ Emma Raducanu has snagged a somewhat late welcome to the Met Gala, Page Six can uncover.
New off her success against Canadian high schooler Leylah Fernandez — and its orderly $2.5 million check — the 18-year-old Brit will be on honorary pathway at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Monday night.
Vogue doyenne Anna Wintour is an incredible tennis fan and Raducanu can be seen demonstrating in the October issue of British Vogue.
Raducanu — who is yet to be reunited together with her folks, left incapable to watch her contend because of pandemic limitations — posted a photograph of herself presenting against a goliath announcement of herself Monday, saying: “Sightseeing in NY, never thought I would see this … coolest thing.”
Following her verifiable success, Raducanu — who just took her school tests recently — is ready to become, in the expressions of marketing specialist Mark Borkowski, “a billion-dollar young lady” and score a heap of sponsorship bargains.
“I think Emma will earn well over $100 million [in the next calendar year]. She’ll eclipse all the men,” said Jonathan Shalit, the administrator of InterTalent Group, a London-based ability the executives organization.
It’s not yet known what creator Raducanu will wear, yet she will join a large group of sports characters including Olympians Suni Lee, Allyson Felix and F1 champ Lewis Hamilton, who as Page Six revealed, has purchased a table at the Gala and welcomed dark games stars.
Wintour was in the stands at Flushing Meadows Sunday to watch Russia’s Daniil Medvedev beat Novak Djokovic, close by her pregnant girl Bee Shaffer.
