Wimbledon 2019: Johanna Konta into quarter-finals after beating Petra Kvitova


British number one Johanna Konta is into the Wimbledon quarter-finals after beating former champion Petra Kvitova in three sets.

Just as she did against Sloane Stephens on Saturday, Konta came from a set down to claim her victory on Centre Court.

Konta found it difficult to serve the match out — unable to claim victory when she had a match point at 5-2 in the final set, going on to lose the game.

She had reached the brink of victory after winning five games in a row, and was more assured in her final service game, clinching the deciding set 6-4.

She is the only British player left in the Wimbledon singles, and faces Barbora Strycova next.

In 2017, Konta became the first British woman since Virginia Wade in 1978 to reach the semifinals at the All England Club, but she lost in the second round last year.
