Johanna Konta quotes

Jul 13 2017

I'm very happy with how I was physically and mentally able to hold up this past grass-court season. I did play every week. I stayed healthy and I stayed mentally quite fresh. That only strengthens my belief that, if I'm ever in a position to be involved in a slam for the full fortnight, I will be able to keep myself in that mental and physical state to be able to deal with hopefully one day playing for a title.feedback

Jul 13 2017

It was one of the few opportunities I had and she took that away.feedback

Jul 12 2017

There was a massively fan-girlie moment. It was pretty intense at home. I may have shrieked and giggled and ran around in circles for a couple of minutes but I played it pretty cool after. I think when U2 tweets you, you know that your life is pretty much made.feedback

Jul 12 2017

What's been very beneficial is that she is aware of the work that I've done previously, and has been able to continue that but also add new things that will develop.feedback

Jul 12 2017

My mum doesn't really watch. She watches from away. She gets very nervous so she is never in the stadium. She is always watching on TV or a screen somewhere.feedback

Jul 12 2017

I think we play a very similar style: aggressive, serve well, return well, very solid off the ground.feedback

Jul 12 2017

I felt consistent in my approach and in my general being out there. I continued to trust in myself.feedback

Jul 12 2017

I've dreamed of success in every slam. I think it makes it more special because it is home. I do get that home support, which I don't get anywhere else. In that sense, I guess it makes it that much sweeter.feedback

Jul 11 2017

I guess it was more of not associating myself with where I was ranked or what my result was, but truly just seeing my career as being the best that I can be.feedback

Jul 11 2017

To be in the semifinals of my home slam, and to do that in front of a full Centre Court, I mean, it's pretty, pretty special. I think the level of tennis that both of us played today, it was just a tremendous match. I've been very fortunate this Championships, I've had two of those now, I feel very lucky.feedback

Jul 11 2017

There were some overenthusiastic moments, which happens I think with every match where it comes to a tense moment. I think it's a part of sport, the crowd getting excited and getting sometimes a little too involved.feedback

Jul 11 2017

It was such a tough match to play, she is in impressive form, it's hard to get any rhythm when she's serving so well and gets her first strike in.feedback

Jul 11 2017

I definitely feel age is not a factor with her. She's just a tremendous champion, and I feel very, very humbled and very excited to share the court with her again.feedback

Jul 11 2017

That's pretty special. It's another step forward to being involved in the event for the full two weeks.feedback

Jul 11 2017

That's many months ago now. I'm looking forward to playing against Simona Halep, the top tennis player, who is playing well right now. It's a great opportunity for me to play again against one of the best in the world.feedback

Jul 11 2017

There was very little between us out there. It was one of those situations that I dreamt of when I was a little girl and being part of those battles on big stages.feedback

Jul 11 2017

That's something that's very complimentary towards me, It's humbling that I have such champions thinking so highly of me. There's a lot of work to be done between now and being in a position to be playing for the Wimbledon title, though. I haven't really looked that far forward.feedback

Jul 10 2017

I was just very happy with how I was able to compete and not pay too much attention to necessarily the good things she was doing and try to keep in mind all the good things I was doing.feedback

Jul 08 2017

No, I haven't thought about that! I think I'm playing some good tennis. I don't think I'm playing unbelievable tennis. But I definitely believe in myself and the fact that I can keep getting better.feedback

Jul 06 2017

There needs to be a responsibility towards the ticket holders and what they are paying to see. I think it's something that will be reassessed. You've got to keep in mind that the players work very hard to be in the position they are in, but there is also a responsibility to the fans.feedback

Jul 05 2017

I'm approaching this event like I am every other event. I'm coming here to do the best that I can, to compete the best I can. I think I showed that today.feedback

Jul 05 2017

I trusted my game a bit more than I did when I played her last. The quality of the match was very high. She served incredibly well, and I'm very happy to have saved some of those break points at the end.feedback

Jul 05 2017

It's a nice feeling not to have to keep going out there. We were out there a long time and both of us battled incredibly hard. Whoever was going to draw the short straw was going to be hurting. I think I overall trusted my game a bit more this time. I'm definitely here with the intention of wanting to be a part of the event for the full two weeks.feedback

Jul 05 2017

It's another opportunity for me to try and find a way to come out on top this time.feedback

Jul 05 2017

There were many. It was interesting. It kind of went in stages. At one point there was a lot then towards the end of the match I don't think there were that many.feedback

Jul 05 2017

I definitely have taken home a few both in my belly and in my bags. I'm pretty sure I have. It was special sometimes – it was in my nose and in my ear.feedback

Jul 03 2017

I am definitely recovering really well. I am taking it one day at a time.feedback

Jun 30 2017

Next week is Wimbledon but I make decisions for my health. I didn't sleep too well but I heard that's normal. It just didn't feel quite right. The most important thing is I rest well for the next 24 hours and then we'll see.feedback

Jun 29 2017

I'm doing ok. I slipped and hit my head so have a bit of a sore head but we'll see.feedback

Jun 29 2017

Against a player like her who has such a big game, sometimes it's difficult to accept that you haven't got much say in some points.feedback

Jun 27 2017

For me results aren't everything. For me my health, the health of my family, that is everything. I do try to put it in a very harsh perspective. If I lose a tennis match, so what? Actually, we are so fortunate in tennis that usually next week you get to try again. We have four slams a year. So many other sports, they look to peak once every four years. We are very spoilt.feedback

Jun 27 2017 - Iran

My grandfather passed away before I was born. I did know about him, little bits here and there, from my mum. His football career wasn't as long as I think he would have wanted it to be, because of injury, but he became a very good coach after, so my mum moved quite a lot with him [ Ghana, Libya and Iran]. Also my mum's grandfather, he was a very good jockey, he travelled the world for years, actually lived in Jersey, and his stuff is in a museum in New York.feedback

Jun 27 2017

Once you get to a certain age you also realise more of what it actually meant. I think that's more of your own guilt, not my parents putting that on me. But my parents are great. They've always wanted me to play as long as I enjoyed it, as long as it's something I wanted to do.feedback

Jun 22 2017

I did a reasonable job at trying to do the best I could but it was no-where good enough. It is part of the game. Just because I am number seven in the world doesn't mean I am entitled to win every match.feedback

Jun 16 2017

It was difficult, she started very strongly. I had to raise my game and only had one little dip. I enjoy the surface on grass and find it is ideal preparation leading up to Wimbledon. I'm feeling good at the moment.feedback

Jun 16 2017

I only had one little dip but I tried to stay strong. I felt I was able to raise my game. It was definitely a nice little comeback. I worked very hard to get myself back into that second set and stop Ashleigh from running away with it.feedback

Apr 23 2017 - Romania protests 2017

I think it will be something I'll work through in the way I work through most of my challenges. Something I'll do my best to overcome and to just understand.feedback

Apr 23 2017

Any abuse is not all right but when it's a couple of meters away from you, screaming at you, I think that's a different ball game. It's not something that you truly know how it affects you until you experience it, so I do believe she may have been slightly unaware of the events that happened.feedback

Mar 29 2017

I'm happy that I'm still here and get to play another match. I don't necessary believe in open fields because every single player in this draw is world class. So every match is as tough as the next. I'm quite happy I was able to execute that reasonably well. And also make it tough for her to stay in that match with the level that she was playing at.feedback

Mar 29 2017

I felt I played myself more into the match a bit more. As the match went on, I felt clearer and clearer on how I wanted to play and what I wanted to do out there from my perspective.feedback

Mar 28 2017

Actually I felt that her forehand is deceptively heavier than you would think because she is not a massively built girl. So I felt I needed to do a good job of staying strong physically and trying not to get pushed back.feedback

Mar 10 2017

I think it's definitely challenging to adapt to these conditions. The air is a bit drier and the ball travels a bit quicker. When the wind picks up, that can also complicate things. But it's a beautiful centre court to play on, so I hope to extend my stay here as long as possible.feedback

Mar 10 2017

It definitely wasn't easy and it makes it extra challenging when you're playing a member of your Fed Cup team.feedback

Jan 24 2017

I don't think Serena Williams needs an introduction with everything that she's achieved in this sport.feedback

Jan 19 2017

I think, well, I haven't really analyzed my own speech. I need to chat more with Naomi!feedback

Jan 18 2017

I'm definitely prepared to go in for a battle.feedback

Jan 17 2017

It was hot, but last week in Sydney, we experienced something a lot hotter. So I think it was almost cool in comparison.feedback

Jan 17 2017

I remember her playing once in the U.S. Open, 2015, in the qualifiers. Since then, she's improved a lot. I have tried to, as well. I know she plays a big game. She has big shots. I'm definitely prepared to go in for a battle.feedback

Jan 17 2017

She's got this great ability at really frustrating her opponents with some of the balls she's able to hit. She's very creative in that way, so I think I was really happy I was able to work myself into the match and to come through.feedback

Oct 09 2016

I'm very pleased with my progress over the past few years and hopefully many more places to climb. I'm just working hard towards playing matches like these, against players like Agnieszka.feedback

Aug 31 2016

Because I'd experienced it once before, I didn't start crying.feedback

Aug 31 2016

What wasn't fair to me was what happened after that – the toilet break. Because with that toilet break the match was stopped for just too long. ... Today I am not very happy about the rules.feedback

Aug 31 2016

It was an unfortunate time. I had my momentum going. I was getting back in the match. ... That break, somehow, maybe stopped that momentum. It's hard to feel the difference between general tiredness, general fatigue, once you cross over to where your body starts shutting down a bit. I think all athletes kind of play a very fine line with that. We push our bodies to the limits that they can go. I definitely hit, you know, one of my limits. That was the way my body reacted. I'm out there to play my sport, to showcase my sport. I'm not an actress. I'm not a drama queen.feedback

Aug 31 2016

I just played with what I had. I feel quite certain that with some TLC I'll be good to go again in a few days' time.feedback
