Konta secures career best world number four ranking

18 July 2017 / 07:37
Johanna Konta's Wimbledon performances have secured her a place in the world's top five.

Konta, now ranked fourth in the world, becomes only the fourth British woman to reach such lofty heights, following Virginia Wade, Sue Barker and Jo Durie.

Konta's ranking could suffer a hit following her decision not to defend her first WTA Tour title in Stanford, with her focus the more valuable women;'s Rogers Cup in Toronto.

But she is rightly heading to the US hard court season - arguably her strongest surface - with optimism brimming.

Andy Murray remains world number one ahead of Rafael Nadal but the Spaniard could snatch top spot at next month's men's Rogers Cup in Montreal
