Tatjana Maria reached her first Grand Slam semi-final with a comeback victory over Jule Niemeier at Wimbledon.
World number 103 Maria beat her German compatriot 4-6 6-2 7-5 in an entertaining encounter.
Maria, 34, was ranked outside the top 250 as recently as March and only returned to the tour a year ago after having her second daughter.
She will face either third seed Ons Jabeur – the highest ranked player left in the draw – or Marie Bouzkova next.
Maria dropped her racquet to the floor and stood with her mouth covered in disbelief after her victory was confirmed by a missed volley.
She ran to the net for a lengthy hug with Niemeier before thanking the crowd, still shaking her head in shock.
“It’s a dream to live this with my family, to live this with my two girls. Almost one year ago I gave birth, it’s crazy,” Maria said.
“I have goosebumps everywhere. I think today we made Germany really proud after our match.”
