She's certainly improved in that department, even in te last few months. When she fell over at Eastbourne she was upset and didn't she then go on to lose the match? This time, which was much worse, she came back and won.
Interesting and a bit worrying that every time Jo hits the ball she appears to be putting twice as much effort into it as Sevastova does. Sevastova has a very smooth swing but generates pace with accuracy, whereas Jo's extra effort is only generating inaccuracies & errors.
0-3. 0-40. So far being outplayed to the same extent that she destroyed Bencic

Johanna Konta !!
This girl is amazing. She is playing Mostar 10k this week and is doing pretty well, defeated 2 Serbian promising players easily.
She is in the semi final now.
