Back in June, Georgia Drummy made a major mark on tennis' ITF tour.

The Irish player reached the final of the women's singles in Portugal and she didn't stop there.

Drummy went on to win her first ITF pro title, beating Lithuania's Justina Mikulskytė 7-6 6-3.

The 110th ranked ITF player followed up her success, winning in Dublin this month in straight sets.

That victory was against France's Alice Robbe 6-1, 6-2.

This week she joined Off The Bench's Cliona Foley to discuss her achievements thus far. The left-handed Dublin also spoke about her rising star status in a sport in which Irish players haven't made an indelible mark at the elite level in recent decades.
