Zidansek is the first Slovenian woman ever to reach the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam event and the 23-year-old admitted her phone has been buzzing ever since.
“I'm getting a lot of messages that everyone is watching,” she said. “It means a lot to me that I'm able to get across to the message to young people and everyone in Slovenia that we can do it.
“We're a small country, we don't have that many players, but we have good players.
“I'm really happy I can get that across. I'm pretty sure it means a lot to them, as well.”
While Slovenia boasts some famous basketball players like Goran Dragic and Luka Doncic, and cyclists, skiers and snowboarders, Zidansek is leading the way for tennis in her country. And she’s undeniably proud of her achievements.
“Considering that we have only two million people, I'm really happy to be a part of the athletes that is doing this good,” she said.
