Konta beats Garcia in Wimbledon last 16

The Croat, considered as a future Slam victor, couldn't find a way to stop Venus, the only former Wimbledon champion left.

Konta, 26, did not have it her own way against a player once tipped back by men's champion Andy Murray to make it to the very top. "I'm not playing against a crowd and I'm not playing against a past experience", said Konta.

Caroline Garcia insisted she did not see her father signaling to her from the coaching box during her fourth-round loss to Johanna Konta at Wimbledon on Monday.

The former number 1, bidding to clinch her 29th top 5 win, the first since 2016 Miami, barely avoided the bagel before saving a match point and breaking to 2-5 with a clean volley, her 20th victor of the match.

"Phenomenal match from Jo Konta, she stayed so focused, so calm in the big moments", Austin said on the BBC.

Garcia had beaten Konta, also in three sets, at Indian Wells in March but she is yet to beat a top-10 player at a Grand Slam and this time it was Konta's serve, and nerve, that came up trumps.

"I'm going to need one match".

Salenger graduated from Harvard and is best known for her title role in the 1985 Disney film The Journey of Natty Gann . The two have looked very happy together as they hit the premieres of Preached and Baby Driver in June.

And if she beats Konta to earn a second successive quarter-final in a major, following her run to the same stage at the French Open, then Garcia's big career decision will look like spectacularly smart judgement.

On Friday, after beating American Madison Brengle emphatically to reach round four without yet dropping a set, Garcia hinted she wanted to play Konta on the main show court.

The Brit got the first break, but Garcia came back on serve to 5-5 with a string of deep returns. I think it's very hard for them to understand my position in it. A British player at Wimbledon, that's never easy.

Garcia quickly sorted out her game and it became a match of who would blink first.

When Garcia ruled herself out of contention to play for France in the Fed Cup in April, by announcing she had a back injury after being selected against her wishes, Mladenovic together with fellow French players Alize Cornet and Pauline Parmentier each tweeted "LOL" nearly simultaneously.

"Of course, I've dreamed of it ever since I was a little girl, to be a Grand Slam champion".
