“It means everything to hold this trophy and I don’t want to let go right now,” she told former British number one Tim Henman on Amazon Prime.

“Yesterday there were weird feelings I couldn’t put my finger on – I think that’s just normal. When I came out it was business as usual, one point at a time.

“I had to fight hard for that first set and keep myself ahead in the second. In the key moments, I came out with some clutch serves.”
