Brady instantly started gleaming with joy and expressed her happiness before the interviewer could properly finish asking her question.

She mentioned how she is a fan of the 35-year-old and that it is an honour for her that the Taiwanese was following her progress.

“What an honour. You just made my! Can’t wait to see it. I’m speechless. Su-wei, I’m honoured. I love Su-wei. She’s awesome, I mean, her personality is very strange. She is a character.

“I think more people should watch the sport because of Su-wei. The way she plays tennis is something you’ve never seen before. I’ve played her several times and it’s a pain in the a**.

The two even interacted on the photo that Su-wei posted of her.
