Konta Keen To Kick On

Konta Keen To Kick On

Johanna Konta hopes her win over Sloane Stephens at the Brisbane International can set the tone for the year. The Brit struggled for consistency last season after reaching the semi-finals of Wimbledon in 2017, a result that allowed her to rise to number four in the world.

Now ranked at number 37, Konta impressed on Tuesday as she defeated the former US Open champion and current world number six Stephens 6-4 6-3.

The 27-year-old next faces Ajla Tomljanovic in the second round and admits she will take plenty of confidence from her opening performance of the year. “She’s top-10 and she’s had an incredible couple of seasons,” Konta said.

“I definitely take a lot of good things from that and a bit of a pat on the back for me that I competed well against one of the best players in the world and I came through.”
