Re: Birmingham R1: (7) Johanna Konta def. Anett Kontaveit 6-4, 6-2
Impressed with Konta in her first grass court match. She looked as confident as she did on clay. She is a player whose mental state is a huge part of any success and she was calm, clean and confident. Kontaveit looked much less confident. She’s not really moved on since making the Stuttgart final. I thought she could have a nice little run at RG but no.
The Konta/veit doubles pairing could be fun for the commentators!
Not seen the draw but Jo is looking good.
