Anya went into the tournament in October unseeded. Despite a tough draw, she beat competitors from Denmark, Sweden, Scotland and Norway to make it the final.
In the final she faced the Bulgarian No 1 and a girl who is ranked at No 5 in Europe. The match was streamed on the internet enabling Anya’s family back in England to watch it as it live.
It was a tough match, with Anya taking the first game, coming from behind in the second game and then losing the third game. Pressure on, she pulled through to take the next game to win 3-1.
Kathy Dyer from Wolverhampton Grammar School’s Sports Department praised Anya’s incredible achievement “Anya has excelled herself and the whole School is incredibly proud of her success. We have a number of students in school who compete at both national and international level and she is a great ambassador for sport and international competition.”
