Emma Raducanu is a 16/1 shot to win Sports Personality of the Year.
Emma Raducanu was named 2021 Sports Personality of the Year last year after a huge breakthrough year in tennis.
Despite having to compete in qualifiers to get into the US Open, Raducanu won every match without dropping a single set.
With over 9.2 million peak viewers watching Raducanu win the US Open Final, she quickly became a household name.
After a difficult start to 2022, bookmakers are giving Raducanu odds of 16/1 to win the SPOTY award again this year.
Lewis Hamilton is the bookies’ favorite to win the SPOTY award in 2022, despite narrowly missing out on the F1 Drivers Championship at the end of last year.
A difficult start to the 2022 Drivers Championship, on the other hand, may see Hamilton fall out of contention for the SPOTY award this year.
Harry Kane is one of the betting favorites to win the award if England wins the World Cup.

Raducanu’s odds of winning the Grand Slams this year
The French Open, which takes place at the end of May, is the next Grand Slam on the horizon in the Tennis season.
Raducanu has no clay court experience in her brief ITF and WTA Tour career, so she may struggle to compete in this event.
The retirement of Ash Barty last week will undoubtedly benefit Raducanu’s chances of winning major events in the coming years.
Barty was the world number one and the favorite to win every Grand Slam this year, but her unexpected retirement last week reduced everyone’s odds for the majors.
Raducanu is the bookmakers’ favorite to win the Laureus Breakthrough of the Year award
The Laureus World Sports Awards are an annual award ceremony that recognizes the best athletes from all sports.
Emma Raducanu has been nominated for the Breakthrough of the Year award, and bookmaker Paddy Power has made her a 5/6 favorite to win.
After winning two gold medals at the Summer Olympics, Australian swimmer Ariarne Titmus is the odds-on favorite to win the award.
Winning this award would highlight Raducanu’s huge breakthrough year, and the Tennis star is hoping for even more award success.
