Furniture issues worry Johanna Konta ahead of Wimbledon

Jun 24, 2017, 11:52 IST | PA Sport

Johanna Konta has cried tears during the build-up to Wimbledon -- but over furniture rather than tennis. The British No. 1 will shoulder the burden of a level of expectation higher than ever before at SW19 after her ascent into the top 10. "I received my chest of drawers and my bedside table, which was very exciting. They dropped off my chest of drawers, I picked it up, but I already broke it. It's funny now, but at the time it was devastating. I called my dad, crying.

"Obviously I'm not around enough to make a massive stamp on things so furniture seems to be arriving roughly every two months. I'm really happy that I've completed all my major buys. I've got two beds, I've got a dining table and a sofa, so now it's just the little things."
