Next for Konta it's Cibulkova, who beat Alize Cornet in two. That will not be easy.

Konta 7-5 7-6(7) - Vikhhylantseva - Vikhlyantseva goes wide with a backhand ... just ... and Konta has another match point, on her racket. Her first serve, down the middle, is wide; her second clips the net; and so does her third, jumping out! Oh dear! But Konta comes again with a big serve and this time, a monstrous backhand return, followed by a monstrous backhand, followed by a tap-volley at the net, and through she goes to round 2!
Konta 7-5 6-6 (6-6) Vikhhylantseva - Konta has played a great breaker here, and a backhand gives her four match points. She nets to cede the first, but the next is on her racket; she serves into the net, and then can't find the lob to counter a fine approach. So she serves again and a forehand groundstroke from Vikhlyantseva clips the line! Konta nets her return, and that's four match-points saved! Well in her!
Konta 7-5 6-6 (3-0) Vikhhylantseva - Vikhhylantseva opens the breaker with a double, and Konta cashes in, serving her sixth ace of the match in the process.
