British No 1 Johanna Konta Books Second-Round Place At Wimbledon

Johanna Konta produced a superb display to avenge her French Open defeat to Su-Wei Hsieh and advance to the Wimbledon second round. The British No 1 has only once gone beyond the first round at the All England Club but served notice of her claims to become the first British woman since Virginia Wade in 1977 to claim a Grand Slam singles title with a 6-2 6-2 victory.

Hsieh had won both previous encounters between the pair, including a first-round defeat at Roland Garros just a few weeks ago, but there was no stopping Konta to the delight of the Court No 1 crowd. Sixth-seed Konta suffered little trouble on her own serve, other than a break midway through the first set, but her power game was too much for the craft of Hsieh and the Briton was able to break at will.
A run of five breaks of her opponent's serve from six attempts broke the back of the match for Konta, taking her from a 2-1 lead in the first set to a 6-2 4-1 advantage that Hsieh never looked like recovering.
