Johanna Konta: British number one loses at Nottingham Open but Tara Moore through

Johanna Konta has risen to a career-high ranking of 18 in the world

British Number one Johanna Konta has been knocked out of the Nottingham Open after a second-round straight-sets defeat by Zheng Saisai.

Konta, ranked 18 in the world, lost 6-4 7-5 to China’s Zheng, who is 44 places below her in the world rankings.

The Briton needed a medical time out three games into the second set for a “Niggle” on her pelvis.

But following the match, Konta said she expected to play in the Wimbledon warm-up events in Birmingham and Eastbourne.

Konta’s defeat leaves qualifier Tara Moore as the only remaining British player in the competition.

She takes on world number 67 Christina McHale at about 17:00 BST on Thursday.
