17 days ago when Konta was facing those successive match points against Wang Yafan in Rabat first round, you'd be absolutely crazy to think she'd end up a seed at Roland Garros, but that's happened.

NINE clay wins already!

Mladenovic or Sakkari are both tall orders in the next round, so hopefully a long GRUELLING game between those 2.

If she's now seeded for RG, then Wimbledon should be a lock in too - especially if she manages to string a few wins together on the terre battue. She didn't have a particularly awesome grass court season last year, so the only significant points that she has to defend in the gap are the points from last years Nottingham final.
It's an even taller order, as it's actually Bertens next. Pliskova plays the winner of that forthcoming match. She's lived ranked 31 now and Sakkari and Mladenovic can pass her in the rankings, but not both, so will be seeded.
