British number one Johanna Konta is through to the semi-finals of the Nottingham Open, but Katie Boulter loses to top seed Ashleigh Barty.

Johanna Konta has earned a place in the Nottingham Open semi-finals with victory over Dalila Jakupovic.

Konta is looking to reach the final in the East Midlands in order to defend her ranking points from 12 months ago, and the British number one has taken another step to achieving that goal with a 6-4 6-2 win.

Jakupovic - the world number 118 - secured the early lead in the match but Konta rallied during the closing stages of the opening set to move into the lead.

The second proved more straightforward, with Konta breaking on three occasions and a last-four showdown - and a repeat of last year's final - with Donna Vekic was set up in just 76 minutes.

However, there was disappointment for Katie Boulter as the British number four lost 6-0 6-2 to top seed Ashleigh Barty.
