    Konta* 6-2 1-2 Vekic

    I’m not sure Vekic has got a first serve in in this game. She still manages to hold to love, though.

  2. Post update

    Konta 6-2 1-1 Vekic*

    Vekic looks frustrated as another first serve goes into the net. She wins the point, but has another chat with her box about it.

  3. Post update

    Konta 6-2 1-1 Vekic*

    Konta grabs control back, though. The 28-year-old shows great composure to hold.

  4. Post update

    Konta* 6-2 0-1 Vekic

    Konta is caught out at the net, then double faults and Vekic takes control of the game.

    But the Croat hits the ball long on the next point. 30-30.

    Vekic continues to chunter at her box in an expressive manner.

    Konta, whose mantra under new coach Dimitri Zavialoff is having “autonomy” on court, has barely exchanged a glance with her team.

    Konta* 6-2 0-1 Vekic

    Konta hits the ball wide on the next point and Vekic gets her second hold of the match.

    Konta 6-2 0-0 Vekic*

    Looks like Vekic isn’t letting this one go without a fight. To be expected.

    The 23rd seed goes 40-0 up, but Konta comes to the net and hits a forehand cross court to get her first point of the second set.

    Serious clutch play from Jo Ko. Whopping winners and splendid serving sees off the danger.

    Not too many vocal Brits here – probably too hot for our pasty people (me included) – but those who are here certainly made their pleasure heard.

  9. Post update

    Konta 6-2 Vekic

    Donna Vekic’s first-serve percentage was only 37% in that first set. Johanna Konta’s was up at 77%.

    Konta also served three aces and hit 15 winners. Not bad…

    It has been another exceptional good performance from Johanna Konta. She has just been too good for Vekic in the 38 minutes of this set.

  11. Game and first set Konta

    Konta 6-2 Vekic

    Well it didn’t come easy, but Konta eventually closes out the set with an ace.

    Halfway to her first French Open quarter-final.

  12. Post update

    Konta* 5-2 Vekic

    A double fault gives Vekic her fourth break point of this game.

    Needless to say, Konta is struggling to close this one out. The Brit fist pumps as she hits a cross-court forehand to bring it back to deuce again.

    Vekic hits a ball wide and Konta is one point from winning the set.

  13. Post update

    Konta* 5-2 Vekic

    Konta is on the ropes, but ducks out of Vekic’s grasp again! Back to deuce.

  14. Post update

    Konta* 5-2 Vekic

    Konta saves the break with her second ace of the match. Vekic has won just one of six break points she’s had so far.

    Another fault gives the Croat another go, though.

  15. Post update

    Konta* 5-2 Vekic

    But Konta wobbles again. After an almost perfect serve, she hits her next shot long. Another break point for Vekic.

  16. Post update

    Konta* 5-2 Vekic

    What a shot! A backhand down the line means Konta saves break point.

  17. Post update

    Konta* 5-2 Vekic

    Konta’s forehand swings too far left and lands out. Break point Vekic.

  18. Post update

    Konta* 5-2 Vekic

    Vekic hits the ball long twice and Konta gets back on level pegging. The British number one is two points from winning the first set.

  19. Post update

    Konta* 5-2 Vekic

    Vekic catches Konta off-guard and fires a forehand cross-court. 0-15.

    Vekic repeats the same shot and it’s 0-30.

    Is Konta second-guessing herself?

  20. Post update

    Konta* 5-2 Vekic

    Naomi Cavaday

    BBC Radio 5 live tennis commentator at Roland Garros

    Jo Konta looks great, a game away with 29 minutes on the clock. It has been pretty much perfect and it looks sustainable.

    Her form does not look like it is going anywhere, whereas previously this season her good moments have been flashes rather than a solid basis she could rely on.
