"Worrying for Johanna Konta as she concedes the final seven points of the set far too tamely to go into a third against the world no. 109.
"Things began to go wrong for her when she could not pick off four break points in the middle of the set. Her answer was to try to hit harder and harder, but Hseih is not one to be bullied.
"Instead she has begun to throw a lot more guile into her game, mixing things up and completely knocking Konta off her stride.
"Big third set for Konta's credentials as a genuine Grand Slam contender of the future."

"The seventh seed simply seems too powerful, and the fact that Hseih finally got something on the board after four games was due to Konta missing her shots rather than anything that Hseih herself produced.
