The 19-year-old athlete reflected on her big victory during an interview with the Tennis Channel at the WTA Finals on Monday.

"The messages are crazy that you get from celebrities that you watch," Coco said. "The coolest thing that I think happened to me was that Zendaya sent me flowers to my house."

"It was a huge bouquet of flowers, and my brother and I struggled to lift it up on the table. I think it weighed at least 50 pounds."
