Johanna Konta racked up her 300th career win and will celebrate by going to the cinema to watch Wonder Woman. It is a fitting choice of film as the 26-year-old, ranked World No. 8, has become the superhero of women’s tennis in this country following her surge to the top of the game over the last two years.
She notched up a landmark victory when Tara Moore retired in the second set of their first-round clash at the Aegon Open in Nottingham, leading 6-4, 3-0 when her compatriot called it a day due to a foot injury.
And it is her win over Svetlana Kuznetsova in Rio that she notes as the best of her 300. "I didn’t know it was a landmark so it is a nice surprise. It is obviously not in the best of circumstances but it is more of a celebration of all the other victories. I am hoping to get my team together this afternoon so we can go to the cinema. I want to watch Wonder Woman," said Konta.
