Yesterday Johanna Konta dismantled the world number 8 Ekaterina Makarova at Eastbourne in first match and first ever win against a top 10 player and today she was at it again! Johanna beat world number 20 and the 14th seed Garbine Muguruza in three sets to advance to the quarter finals.
Johanna broke early on in the match and went on to take a 3-0 lead before taking the set 6-4. Muguruza then mounted a comeback in the second set to take the set 6-4 however the final set was all about Britain’s number two Johanna Konta. Konta raced to a 5-1 lead in the set winning 11/12 points in a row against the Spaniard. It did get a bit nervy as she was broken back and Muguruza got back to 3-5 but Konta held for another big win with her opponent tomorrow (Belinda Bencic) watching on from the side!
Well done Johanna Konta!!!
