Johanna Konta Records Her 300th Win In Nottingham

The British No. 1 Johanna Konta recorded Her 300th career victory after her opponent, Tara Moore's retirement due to a foot injury at the Aegon Open in Nottingham.

Moore had been dominated throughout, managing just two of six in the first set and would have gone into the books as one of her landmark Victories.

Konta was bossing matters in the first-round tie with her consistency, taking the first set with two breaks of the 24-year-old's serve while It was three games without reply for Konta in the second set when British number four Moore called it a day.

"I didn't know it was a landmark so it is a nice surprise," Konta, top seed in Nottingham, said. "It is obviously not in the best of circumstances but it is more of a celebration of all the other victories.

Her Memorable Of The 300

"I can't remember my first one at all. I have matured a lot since then and am a better player.
"I was really proud to play at the Olympics for Great Britain in 2016 so that would have to be a highlight and specifically my long match over Svetlana Kuznetsova. Hopefully there's many more to come.

"I am hoping to get my team together this afternoon so we can go to the cinema. I want to watch Wonder Woman."

She Added

"I felt [that], the things I had under my control, I did the best that I could," Konta said. "We had a lot of close games, especially on her serve, and I felt that I stayed competitive.

"I enjoyed my first game on this surface and felt I got better and better. I enjoy this part of the season but I am taking one match at a time.

"The last time I played Yanina was at Birmingham last year and she did get the better of me there. She is a very dangerous player [and] she is powerful so I know she can be dangerous on this surface especially."
Johanna Konta will now face Belgian Yanina Wickmayer in the second round.
