Johanna Konta: 'I lost to the better player in US Open exit'

Johanna Konta admits that Petra Kvitova made life extremely tough for her as she lost in straight sets to the fifth seed in the fourth round of the US Open.

Johanna Konta has conceded that she was beaten by the better player in her fourth-round exit at the US Open at the hands of Petra Kvitova.

The 24-year-old's run in the competition was ended when she lost in straight sets to the two-time Wimbledon champion as the Brit struggled to win the big points against the number five seed.

She told reporters: "It's obviously not the result I wanted it would have been nice to keep the run I had here going.

"I played again an incredibly tough player today she doesn't let you get into a rhythm and she doesn't let you take control of a point.

"It was really difficult for me out there, but I had an amazing time out there on Arthur Ashe. It was a childhood dream come true and it was very special, and now I get the chance to recover and move on."

The run to the fourth round was Konta's best performance in a Grand Slam in her career.
