Johanna Konta bristles at reporter after Wimbledon loss

Johanna Konta bristles at reporter after Wimbledon loss

We played better in our second-round match against 14th seeds Fabrice Martin and Raquel Atawo than we did in the first round, and I'm sure we will continue to improve as we get more matches under our belts.

Despite her less-illustrious list of achievements, Strycova is ready for the challenge of playing one of the greatest tennis players in history.

Konta: "Is that in your professional tennis opinion?"

Riske has a history of doing well on grass, having won 11 of her 19 career Grand Slam matches at Wimbledon.

Before Wimbledon 2019, Mair told SportsLine readers to fade world No. 1 and pre-tournament favorite Ashleigh Barty despite her dominant form. Murray and Williams won two games, but couldn't fight all the way back.

The pair - known affectionately by fans as "Serandy" or "Murena" - was broken twice in the third set and trailed 4-0.

"But a genuine kind of desire and will to win, which I would have expected that to have been the case, but I didn't know that about her".

The American will be wise not to take the 33-year-old lightly as she has ousted four seeds on her run to the last four.

Muchova was trying to become the first woman since 1999 to reach the semifinals on her Wimbledon debut. "I don't have much else to say to your question", she added. She then raced to a lead in the second and through it all, she made only nine unforced errors (three doubles faults) to 22 winners. I couldn't quite find the level that I needed to make it hard and challenging for the kind of player she is. Just a lot of stuff I need to get done physically, get myself stronger.

Speaking previously about why she chose to play alongside Murray, Williams, 37, said: "We're a lot alike on the court, I've always liked that about him".

Halep says she's not thinking about the past at Wimbledon this year; that's probably the right approach when it comes to her past against Svitolina.

Johanna Konta serves on Centre Court during her defeat to Barbara Strycova. And the third came after she called Ramos "a thief".

JOHANNA KONTA denied she had spurned a golden opportunity to win her first grand slam after losing to the unseeded Barbora Strycova in the Wimbledon quarter-finals.

Williams responded by winning three straight games in the final set, but lost her serve again.

"It is the first time in the semi-finals for me and I didn't expect it would happen here".

By now Williams had shaken off the early rust and held her own serve before closing out the set with a fist in the air, watched on by golf great Jack Nicklaus among other celebrities and sports stars in the royal box.
