Boulter wins first-to-10 final-set tie-break at Australian Open

When the score was 6:0, 4:6 and 6:6, the British scored in the tie-break 7:4 and cheered, as if she had won the Match already.

"I ended up getting the win, I'd probably have been really devastated had I not".

Katie Boulter reacts when thinking she won her match.

Fellow Briton Heather Watson lost 6-1, 6-2 to 31st seed Petra Martic, blaming heat and anxiety for causing her to feel faint.

She blitzed her way through the first set against the Russian - a former semi-finalist at Melbourne Park.
