Johanna Konta unimpressed by Australian Open scheduling | Tennis News |

Johanna Konta went down in three sets to Garbine Muguruza in the early hours of Friday morning in Melbourne

Johanna Konta said her late-night Australian Open defeat to Garbine Muguruza “wasn’t ideal for anyone”, as British interest in the singles ended for another year.

Konta hit the first serve of the contest at 12.30am, making it the latest start to a match at Melbourne Park and almost certainly in Grand Slam history.

By the time Muguruza struck the winning shot to claim a 6-4 6-7 (3-7) 7-5 victory, it was 3.12am.
