Rising British tennis hopeful Johanna Konta has insisted that she is keeping her feet "firmly on the ground" despite her impressive showing at the US Open.
The 24-year-old has made it into a fourth-round clash with Petra Kvitova in New York, and could become Britain's new number one if she is able to beat the two-time Wimbledon champion at Flushing Meadows on Tuesday.
"To be honest, I feel just as I did two weeks ago, I haven't exactly grown wings or anything," said Konta, according to the Straits Times.
"I must say I'm happy with how I have been playing so far this week but my feet are firmly on the ground. I haven't cured cancer or anything."
Konta entered the tournament ranked 96th in the women's draw, but could leave in the top 50.
