Konta Beats Tomljanovic in First Round at Australian Open

MELBOURNE, Australia – Former Australian Open semifinalist Johanna Konta advanced to the second round of the Australian Open after beating Ajla Tomljanovic on Tuesday.

The Brit, who lost to Tomljanovic in Brisbane earlier this month, defeated her opponent 7-6 (4), 2-6, 7-6 (7).

Tomljanovic began with a break in the first game, then held her serve to go 2-0 up, but missed a crucial opportunity to go up 3-0 in the next game.

Konta outpaced Tomljanovic with almost double the winners (20-11), most of which she hit during the latter half of the set.

The two were evenly matched as they charged into a tiebreak.

Konta recovered a couple of misplaced drop-shots, and earned the mini break at 4-3.

Konta will play against two-time Grand Slam champion Garbiñe Muguruza next after the Spaniard beat China’s Saisai Zheng 6-2, 6-3.
