Harmony Tan admits she struggles to understand her achievements after extending them Wimbledon run that crushes Britain’s Katie Boulter to secure her fourth-round spot.

Boulter rose to national prominence earlier this week when she defeated former finalist Karolina Pliskova in emotional circumstances just two days after the death of her grandmother.

Tan however, buoyed by her landmark first-round win over Serena Williams, sailed through after an ultimately emphatic 6-1, 6-1 win.

“No, I don’t believe it yet — if I get a little sleep, maybe I’ll believe it tomorrow, but it’s amazing,” she said afterwards.

“I think I like grass, I never play this court but I like to slice and volley and anything with my game so I’m really happy.

“It was really emotional for the first round against Serena [Williams] and after it was just played game after game and today was really good tennis. I don’t know why, but it depends on the day!’

Britain’s No3 Boulter had hoped to draw inspiration from Leicester City’s miraculous 2015/16 Premier League title win and Emma Raducanu’s win at the 2021 US Open to spur them on to further SW19 glory.

World No. 115 at 24, Tan made just five unforced errors as she galloped into the last 16 and extended her maiden Wimbledon run.

Boulter conceded a difficult match with a double fault that gave Tan her third break of the set.

The home favorite, who failed to come close to the heights of her second-round performance, committed 21 unforced errors.
