No magic pill, but Johanna Konta delighted with progress at Grand Slams

Johanna Konta

It all seems to be clicking for Johanna Konta in the Grand Slams and the British No 1 says she is “definitely pleased” with her displays in the majors.

Konta reached the second week of a third successive Slam as she made light of Zhang Shuai at the US Open, winning 6-2, 6-3 to secure a fourth-round match against third seed Karolina Pliskova.

Her run at Flushing Meadows comes on the back of a quarter-final at Wimbledon and a semi-final at Roland Garros.

Naturally, the 28-year-old is happy with her performances at the Grand Slams this year.

“I think I’m definitely pleased to have made it to the second week of the last three Slams – I think that’s a really good achievement for me,” she said.

“Overall I’m just looking forward to playing Karolina in the fourth round. I don’t think there’s necessarily any specific magic click or pill or anything, but I definitely feel like I’ve been giving myself every opportunity possible to get better and grow.

“If I look at it from a big-picture perspective, I’ve played a lot of matches this year.

“I think coming into the US Open this year I just tried to keep along the same path more than anything.”
