MONTRÉAL, Canada - World No.121 Kristina Kucova's fairytale Rogers Cup run continued on Friday night with a straight set win over in-form Johanna Konta.
Watch live action from Montréal this week on WTA Live powered by TennisTV!
Showing no trace of nerves, Kucova closed out a 6-4, 6-3 victory to end Konta's impressive recent run and wreck her hopes of becoming the first British player in 32 years to reach the Top 10.
Following an even start, Kucova capitalized on a couple of errant Konta forehands to hit the front in the sixth game. She stretched this lead to 5-2 and despite a late wobble eventually closed out the set when Konta sent a backhand long.
A bundle of energy before, during and after each point, Kucova harnessed an upset-hungry crowd to frustrate Konta at the start of the second, quickly building a 3-1 lead. When she hung onto her serve in a marathon fifth game the finishing line loomed into view.
Konta, who knew that victory would see her become only the fourth British player (after Virginia Wade, Sue Barker and Durie) to be ranked inside the Top 10, fought doggedly until the end but struggled to summon her best tennis for any length of time, a 40th unforced error of the night consigning her to defeat.
For Kucova, this latest surprise result, sets up a semifinal date with No.10 seed Madison Keys, a 7-6(3), 1-6, 6-0 winner of a topsy-turvy clash against Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova earlier on.
"I cannot believe it, I'm so happy!. There is no secret to my success, I feel so good here, I get so much energy from the crowd," Kucova said. "They support me so much and although I'm already a bit tired they help me through!"

When Keys first serves come, it will be very difficult. Kika must be totally exhausted already. In any case, super tournament and good luck
