WTA rising star Donna Vekic took the tennis world by storm this past week, winning the first WTA title of her career in Kuala Lumpur. She was so happy that she couldn't even really vocalize her next steps:
"I'm very tired right now, but I made it - my body made it," the 17-year-old said. "I'm going to have some rest and then discuss what's next with my coach - I don't even know what my next tournament is!
"But I'm just so happy I won the title. Hopefully there will be many more to come."
The tennis world was as happy for her as she was - here are just some of the props on Twitter...
