    Maevellous for Johanna, she's certainly making an impact!

    She is playing Timea Babos. OK a step up but Babos is currently ranked 59 so not completely out of sight! Babos is having her breakout year so had R1 RG and R2 Wimbledon so has only ever won one GS match!

    Not sure if I like the 'how British do you feel?' question, but still, good to see her get recognition for a her maiden slam win.

    Re: Johanna Konta

    Well that was very much a match of swings and momentums big one for Jo to get the first set, big one for Govortsova to get the second, not quite so straightforward in the third as Jo went to 3-0 to be pegged back to 3-2 but then went to 5-2 then a final swing against her to lose 5-7.

    She will be upset and frustrated today.
    Hopefully she can take the positives. Clearly she can hang in with those around the top fify so the current ranking of around two hundred is going to change quickly (actually, probably a lot due to the second round points).

    Just needs to be positive and move forward. Yes, you could have been in the third round of a slam, but, more importantly, perhaps this was the week you started to realise that you were playing your peers!

    good week for Jo - shame she lost this one, but I'm sure once she gets over the disappointment she'll be pleased with how she did.

    JoKo has risen 55 places to a career high WR#148 this morning after her successes at the USO.
    She's cementing her place as GB#5 nicely and is just 6 places behind Bally on #142.
