"I've had a few tough matches but I managed to pull my game together and get through them, and I'm glad to make the final and it's a tough match today, she played really well. I think I played quite well but unfortunately she won," said Emma.

When asked if she dreamed of being a professional player one day, Emma added: "Yes because I like competing and I like travelling around the world and playing."

"Yeah, I know it's really hard work but hopefully if I work on my game and pull it together then maybe it will happen one day," she replied.

And happen it did, just last weekend in New York when Emma won the US Open and made history in becoming Britain's first female Grand Slam winner since Virginia Wade won Wimbledon in 1977.

Not only that, but she - for the first time ever - became the first qualifier in tennis history to make it to the finals of a Grand Slam, never mind win it. And she did it without dropping a single set!

Emma is now back in the UK after her US Open win - and Met Gala appearance! She told BBC Breakfast: “I think it’s gradually sinking in a bit more.

"Last night I rewatched the final and tried to relive a couple of the moments and remember how it felt. But it’s still such a whirlwind of an experience. I’ve loved every moment of it. It is something that is very difficult to fully comprehend."

We're so pleased for you, Emma!
