"I was terrified before going out there, but this is something you dream of, being Commonwealth champion," said Gilroy.

"It is brilliant.

"The standard of the competition has been high, I've been up against some of the best players in the world in the knockout stages.

"But I was surprised I won 3-0. Alette is a really good player and it was a really close match when I played her a few weeks ago."

Moll admitted she had not deserved to win but remained upbeat.

"She played a good game, she was very consistent, but my chance will come again," said the South African.
