Johanna Konta has continued her remarkable recent resurgence by powering past Donna Vekic and into the last eight of the French Open.

The British number one, who had a very tough year in 2018, was close to her absolute best as she dominated against the Croatian, eventually winning 6-2, 6-4.

Things will get considerably tougher for Konta from here on in, though, with Sloane Stephens or Garbine Muguruza awaiting in the quarter-finals.

Czech teen Marketa Vondrousova, meanwhile, continued to impress by absolutely humiliating Latvia’s Anastasija Sevastova on Sunday.

The 19-year-old was in irrepressible form, commanding the match throughout before sealing a 6-2 6-0 win to move into her maiden Grand Slam quarter-final.

There she will face 31st-seed Petra Martic, who beat Kaia Kanepi.
