British number three Johanna Konta loses out to Jelena Jankovic in the opening round of Wimbledon.

Great Britain's Johanna Konta was knocked out of Wimbledon at the round one stage this afternoon by Jelena Jankovic, who recorded a 6-2 7-5 victory in the English capital.

World number 16 Jankovic started the better of the two players and was able to press home her advantage by recording a double break to take the first set.

The second set was much more evenly contested, though, and it appeared to be heading for a tie-breaker.

However, with the scores level at 5-5, Konta committed her fourth double fault of the match on break-point down, thus handing her opponent a 6-5 lead.

A string of unforced errors from the British number three followed in the next game, which allowed Jankovic to book place in round two of the competition.
