Laura Robson wants to emulate fellow Brit Andy Murray by winning a Grand Slam.

British number one Laura Robson has admitted that she dreams of emulating world number two Andy Murray by winning a Grand Slam.

The 19-year-old became the first British woman to reach the last 16 of Wimbledon since Sam Smith 15 years ago after her comeback victory over Marina Erakovic on Saturday.

While she feels that she has a long way to go before clinching her first major honour in tennis, Robson believes that she can one day replicate Murray by winning a Grand Slam.

"I am a long way off Andy and have so many things I need to work on and improve on," Robson told the Daily Record. "But it takes time and a lot of hard work and that is what I have been doing and will continue to do.

"Do I you think a Grand Slam win is out there one day? I don't know. It's possible. It would be a very tough goal but it is something I have always dreamed of so I hope it comes true."

Robson faces Estonia's Kaia Kanepi on Monday for a place in the last eight.
