Johanna Konta first British woman in 36 years to reach French Open semis

Johanna Konta became the first British woman in 36 years to make it to the French Open semis beating last year’s runner-up Sloane Stephens of US 6-1, 6-4 on Tuesday. Jo Durie was the last British woman to reach the French Open semifinals in 1983. Konta had never won a match at Roland Garros in any of her previous four appearances. She had reached the last four at 2016 Australian Open and Wimbledon in 2017.
