Konta beats Wozniacki for Miami WTA title

Posted April 02, 2017

"I think the fortunate position that I'm in is we have someone called Andy Murray who, bless him, has I think carried most of that weight on his shoulders", she said after her third straight win over Williams.

The Briton still had the upper hand, though, but a fired up Wozniacki, who repeatedly gave determined looks to her box, pushed her repeatedly to advantage on her next service game before claiming a break which levelled the opening set up at 4-4.

For Wozniacki, the Dane's road to the title match has been much simpler, only dropping one set so far this entire tournament, In her first match, Wozniacki cruised past American Varvara Lepchenko 6-1, 6-2 before another comfortable victory over big-hitting Romanian Sorana Cirstea.

It was Wozniacki's third final of the year and third defeat following her loses in Dubai and Doha. I think, yeah, I mean, I tried to not wish time away and to really stay out there as long as possible and really enjoy competing. It has been barely eight months since she clinched her first career title by beating Venus Williams in the Stanford, California final, before adding in the city of her birth the Sydney International in January. But in general she has showed good solidity, and constancy of performances.

"I couldn't believe it was over because I was so focused, just trying on every single point", Konta, who hit 33 winners, said in a courtside interview.

Asked how high she could go in the rankings, and whether a grand slam victory was in her sights, she said: "I think the belief has been there since I was a little girl. But I got a good start to the second set and that got me going, got me grinding". "I've won a lot of matches this year".

"I'd like to be the best player in the world but there's a lot of work to be done between now and then. I'm going to learn from the things that I can do better, but at the same time not beat myself up too much and just keep working and doing what I'm doing".

"I play smart tennis and calmer tennis I think. Wherever that gets me that's where it will get me, but hopefully the day I hang up my racquets I will be able to say that I really maximized my full ability and everything inside me".
