Wuhan: Barty def Konta 6-0, 4-6 7-6 (3)

Four defeats in a row for Jo, who served for the match in the third. She needs a break and fast, would be best if she didn't make Singapore.

What a delicious drop shot return to win the match from Ash.

Wow. Just wow. Take the rest of the year off, Jo. Before you embarrass yourself.

Konta is in such a slump. Let's hope she recovers her mental strength until Singapore.

On the other hand I'm glad Barty is having such a successful comeback. Her story is so interesting.

Defeat doesn't finish a man, quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits.

Konta seems so done after Wimbledon. Fissette may be on the way out.

Well done, Ash

Vee really destroyed her soul with that delicious Wimbledon spanking. Now can't even servebot to save her life when her ugly technique is exposed by more skilled players like Barty.

He probably read on google search or trip advisor that Istanbul is less expensive than Singapore.
Cool story bro.

Always a delight to see Konta lose.

Barty is almost as basic, but she is *slightly* preferable to the Velociraptor.

Was that a drop shot on mp?
Phew glad she played the tiebreaker well, usually she doesn't. Also happy to see Konta fed a bagel

Barty is up to a career-high (live) ranking of 33 with this result.

Re: Wuhan R2: Barty d. [5]Konta 6-0 4-6 7-6(3)

Terrible brainfart from Konta while only 2 points away from clinching a victory on her own serve - was 5-4 30-30 than two points lost while her opponent was in deep defence and Konta having upperhand in both rallies, first after she hit forehand centrally to Barty - DTL was a sure winner with Jo being 2 metres inside the court and than that failed smash.

Such an illustrious demonstration of her slump.

Barty won on her 1st MP with dropshot return winner. Well played tiebreak and match from her.

Barty has such a special walk. Does anyone know if she's dealing with some kind of leg issue, or?
