Britain’s Francesca Jones overcame a “wee mental breakdown” because of cuts on her fingers to qualify for a Grand Slam for the first time.

The 20-year-old booked a place at the Australian Open with a crushing 6-0 6-1 victory over China’s Lu Jiajing in the final round of qualifying in Dubai.

“I’m just super happy to qualify and really looking forward to getting out to Oz,” she said.

The Australian Open starts on 8 February in Melbourne.
