18-year-old Emma Raducanu has continued her remarkable run at this year's Wimbledon with another win that will see her compete in the fourth round next week.

Raducanu, ranked 333 in the world, beat Romanian Sorana Cirstea (45th) in straight sets 6-3 7-5 to continue what has been described as a "fairytale" debut at the world-famous tennis grand slam.

Raducanu is a former pupil of Newstead Woods school in Bromley, and the only British tennis player left in the Wimbledon Ladies' Singles Competition. 

The Bromley student is gaining legions of fans by the day, and the roar on Court No.1 when she won the final point of her match to take her into the illustrious second week of the Championships was deafening.

Raducanu, who is waiting for her A-Level results, passed this particular test in fine style, with a run of eight successive games laying the foundations of a memorable afternoon.

As well as a sparkling attacking display, she also showed fighting spirit and tenacity in the second set, claiming the win on her third match point.

Raducanu said in her on-court interview: "Honestly, I am so speechless right now, at the end I didn’t know what my reaction would be if I won and that just happened, I am so so grateful for all the support I had today.

"Who would have thought, it is funny because at the start when I was packing to come into the bubble, my parents were like, ‘Aren’t you packing too many sets of match kits?’.

"I think I am going to have to do some laundry tonight, but I think they have a laundry service at the hotel, so I am all good."
