Johanna Konta in dominant mood as she blows away Sloane Stephens at French Open

French Open
A happy Johanna Konta

Johanna Konta continued her amazing career resurgence by absolutely dominating Sloane Stephens to move into the French Open semi-finals.

The British number one, who had a horrendous 2018, came to Paris having never won a match at Roland Garros, but she will be set for a rankings boost after an incredible 6-1, 6-4 win over last year’s runner-up Stephens.

“This is my first match on the new Chatrier and to play one of the best players in the world and to play at the level I did, I feel very proud of myself.

“I’m just so pleased to have gone through,” Konta said in her on-court interview.

“Definitely dealing with the conditions out here, it’s super windy, and an opponent like Sloane who can run away with that match.

“I’m just pleased I was able to keep her on the back foot.”

Konta will now face either Croatia’s Petra Martic or Czech teenager Marketa Vondrousova for a place in her first Grand Slam final.
