Tennis player Lulu Sun's hometown club is confident she'll go all the way at Wimbledon.

She's beaten Britain's Emma Raducanu today, making her the first Kiwi woman to make Wimbledon's quarter-finals.

Her Te Anau club pulled an all-nighter to watch her compete.

Club president Gregory Sheppard says Sun had them on the edge of their seats.

"It was quite emotional, actually, there was a few tears shed in the clubhouse there. We're all just super proud."

Sun is ranked 123rd in the world, and will play number 37 - Donna VekicĀ  on Wednesday, for a semi-final spot.
