Eastbourne | Wozniacki ends Konta’s run

Eastbourne | Wozniacki ends Konta’s run

World No.2 Caroline Wozniacki put an end to British No.1 Konta’s home run, battling past the Eastbourne resident 4-6 6-1 6-4. The Dane will now face Ashleigh Barty, who was a 6-0 6-4 winner over Su Wei Hsieh, in the next round.

Wozniacki is aware that her Australian quarterfinal opponent, who won the Nottingham title at the start of the month, will be tough to beat.

“She plays really well on the grass,” said Wozniacki. “Obviously feels very comfortable and confident on it. She’s a tricky player. Serves very well. Picks her spots. She has that slice that stays low so I’m going to go out there and just try my best.”

Elsewhere, women’s second seed Pliskova beat Barbora Strycova 6-3 6-4 and No.4 seed in the women’s draw

Fourth seed Angelique Kerber thrashed American Danielle Collins 6-1 6-1 to set up a clash with seventh seed Daria Kasatkina who defeated Anastasija Sevastova 6-4 6-4.

Fifth seed Jelena Ostapenko overpowered Romanian Mihaela Buzanescu 6-1 6-2 and will face Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska who was given a walkover by former Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova after the third seed withdrew with a hamstring injury.
