Cori “Coco” staged a remarkable comeback to continue her magical run at Wimbledon after beating Polona Hercog in a Center Court classic.
Despite facing two match points in the second set, the 15-year-old pulled through to win 3-6 7-6 (9-7) 7-5.
Having struggled to find her rhythm in the early stages, the American looked to be heading out in straight sets but won a nail-biting tie break to take the match into a decider.
Such composure showed just how resilient this teenager is as she watched her 28-year-old opponent struggle most under the pressure.
The drama continued into the final set as momentum switched between the two competitors but it was the teenager who eventually emerged victorious to the ovation of the crowd.
The tennis prodigy became an overnight star this week after beating Venus Williams in the first round, making her the youngest player to win a singles match at Wimbledon since 1991.
She then defeated Slovakia’s Magdaléna Rybáriková, an opponent twice her age, in straight sets on Wednesday.
She will now face former world number one Simona Halep in the next round.
