Laura Robson admitted she is ready to ban her mum from watching her at Wimbledon after the teenager became the first British woman to reach the fourth round in 15 years on Saturday.
Robson showed tremendous tenacity to come from a set and 3-5 down to defeat New Zealand's Marina Erakovic, 1-6, 7-5, 6-3 in front of a packed Court Two.
The 19-year-old will go on to face either Alison Riske of the United States or Kaia Kanepi of Estonia, a former All England Club quarter-finalist.
Sam Smith, in 1998, was the last British woman to make the last 16 at Wimbledon.
