In the weeks Premier event at Stanford, Great Britain’s Johanna Konta took her first tour event of the season in a high quality three set contest with Venus Williams. The first two sets were shared with the score 7-5 in both. Konta played an excellent finals et breaking twice. The nerves showed in the final game having to save break points but eventually she served it out for the win. Konta will move into the top 16 as a result.

In the other WTA events to take place this week, Germany’s Laura Siegemund won her first WTA title in Sweden defeating Czech Katerina Siniakova in straight sets. The first set was tight with the German breaking at 6-5. From there Siegemund took control to easily win the second set 6-1 completing the win in 83 minutes.Meanwhile in Washington Belgian Nanina Wickmayer took her first title for 5 years in Washington DC as she beat young American talent Lauren Davis in straight sets. The Belgian needed two attempts to serve for the title as Davis in her first WTA final showed great character to fight against a lost cause, but in the end Wickmayer was victorious. I’m sure we will see more of Davis in the future.
