As for Henman Hill, you can forget any future references to Murray Mount. It has now been christened Robson Ridge by the tennis fanatics in SW19 - and could stay that way for the next decade or two.

But with England's sporting fate in the balance,
the teenager found the inner strength to play her best tennis when it really mattered.

Not since Annabel Croft took the Junior Wimbledon title in 1984 has the crowd been able to cheer like this, despite doubles triumphs such as Jamie Murray's alongside Jelena Jankovic last year.

Now, at last, Britain has a tennis heroine who can deliver the goods all the way to the end of the second week. Robson's Ridge will be packed again next year when she really hits the big time.

Great, now at last Britain has a great English hope to cheer for. Murray you're not needed anymore, you're officially Scottish again!

But seriously, what an achievement. Hopefully she can start to make an impact on the main tour in the next few years!

Aye, just read it there - the articles I read today were just ridiculous with the hype she is getting.

It's a fantastic achievement, but the transition from junior to senior is very, very tough.
