Johanna Konta bristles at reporter after Wimbledon loss

Thursday, 11 Jul, 2019

At times, especially at the US Open last September when she had a meltdown, the stress it has caused her has been all too obvious; but as she prepares to face the Czech Barbora Strycova in the semi-finals on Thursday she seems at ease.

As the last British player remaining in the tournament, Konta was the crowd favorite against Barbora Strycova on Centre Court but lost 7-6 (5), 6-1 despite holding a 4-1 lead in the first set.

Riske, who will marry Stephen Amritraj, the son of former Indian Davis Cup player Anand, after Wimbledon, stunned world number one Ash Barty to notch up her 14th win in 15 matches on grass this season.

"Is that in your professional tennis opinion?" she fired back.

Serena Williams says she sent an apology to Naomi Osaka for her behavior in last year's U.S. Open final.

'I hope this translates and carries over to the singles for him eventually'.

"You're being quite disrespectful and you're patronising me.In the way you're asking your question, you're being quite disrespectful and you're patronising me".

"But I guarantee that she is working to get better every day".

The significance of that number is not lost on anyone in the women's game as Williams tries to equal the all-time record of grand slam singles titles held by the Australian Margaret Court.

"I think that the press conference is not necessarily the right place to address your shortcomings and your weaknesses", Beltrame says. I think I'm very open with you guys. If they refuse or don't answer the questions then they can be liable for a hefty fine.

He said: "I'm just dealing with, I don't know, like winning and losing slightly differently than maybe I used to". I still believe in the way I competed. He spoke glowingly of Williams and her competitive drive.

Just because it is a good story for me to play against my brother it does not mean we are automatically gifted a passage through the draw. "I know some people might like it to have taken five months or six months, but it's going to take more time than that, unfortunately".

The BBC asked Murray if their team name is Serena's preferred choice of "MuRena" instead of "SerAndy" and he quickly said: "I think Serena's the boss, so whatever she says goes".

"The top players are still winning and even when he was in pain, some of the matches he was playing he was actually quite competitive, which is wonderful really".

Surprisingly, it's Elina Svitolina's first time in a Grand Slam semifinal.

"I haven't thought about that, what rankings he can get to or anything like that". Equally so if I do. Serena was also fined for her remarks towards the umpire in the US Open final past year. 'I would love to play. "I'm grateful for everything that it brings me".
