British tennis player Heather Watson celebrated the biggest win of her career at Wimbledon on Monday.

The only British female with a first-day win, Watson beat Czech player Iveta Benesova on her Centre Court debut.

The 20-year-old had to wait all day for her match against a player ranked 48 places above her, but she was really happy with the result.

She said: "This is my first singles win at Wimbledon including juniors so I'm so pleased."
