A British teenager made headlines after reaching the fourth round at Wimbledon’s Tennis Championship. On Saturday, 18-year-old Emma Raducanu became the youngest woman in the U.K. to make it to the fourth round at the tournament since 1959.

Raducanu was ranked 338th in the world and won against Sorana Cirstea, who was ranked 45th. The British teen said her nerves almost got the best of her, but she managed to persevere to win the match.

“I’m so speechless right now. At the end, I didn’t know what my reaction would be if I’d won and then that just happened,” she expressed. “So, I mean, I’m just so, so grateful for all the support that I had today, like I really appreciate it.”

Raducanu is expected to play Australia’s Alja Tomljanovic in the fourth round.
