Strycova to face Serena Williams in Wimbledon semi-finals
Johanna Konta failed in her bid to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals after an error-strewn display in a straight-set defeat by Czech Barbora Strycova.
The British number one started strongly, racing to a 4-1 lead, before collapsing to lose 7-6 (7-5) 6-1.
Let down by her previously dominant serve and firing long when she had the whole court at her disposal, Konta could not find a way back.
Strycova will face 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams in the semis.
“I think this was one of the best matches I have played,” Strycova, 33, said after reaching her maiden Grand Slam singles semi-final.
