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.
