Johanna Konta claimed the Miami Open with a straight sets win over Caroline Wozniacki
Johanna Konta claimed the biggest title of her career as she beat Caroline Wozniacki 6-4 6-3 in the final of the Miami Open on Saturday.
The British number one was the better player throughout and held her nerves when she needed to most, breaking Wozniacki to seal the victory with a magnificent lob at the end of a thrilling rally.
Victory gives Konta the most significant trophy of her career. The Premier Mandatory event falls just under the Grand Slams in the season’s events and the 1000 points on offer mean the 25-year-old will rise to number seven in Monday’s updated world ranking list.
