Australian Open: Konta’s golden run continues

Britain’s Johanna Konta continued her remarkable Australian Open run with a straight-set win over China’s Zhang Shuai in the quarter-finals.

The unseeded 24-year-old won 6-4 6-1 to become the first British woman to reach a Grand Slam semi-final since Jo Durie made the US Open last four in 1983.

The British number one took full advantage of facing a quarter-final opponent who also happens to be a tournament surprise, seeing off world number 133, Zhang in one hour and 22 minutes.

The 47th ranked Brit will next face the seventh seed from Germany, Angelique Kerber, who defeated two-time Australian Open Champion, Victoria Azarenka 6-3, 7-5.
