Johanna Konta roars in delight after securing victory

British No 1 Johanna Konta battled past Kiki Bertens 5-7 7-5 6-2 to reach the final of the Italian Open in Rome for the first time.

Konta, who turned 28 on Friday, recovered after losing the last three games of the opening set to continue her impressive clay-court form.

The unseeded Brit came through after two hours and 47 minutes against the Dutch world No 4, who had won the Madrid title last week.
