“I’ve got absolutely no words, I’m literally shaking,” Boulter said after her victory. “The crowd was unbelievable, thank you so much for getting me through that.”
The 25-year-old then shared that this match had fallen at an extremely difficult time for her and her family, who were watching in the Player Box on Centre Court.
“I’m going to get emotional. My gran passed away two days ago so I’d just like to dedicate that to her today.“
