Angry Johanna Konta refuses to shake umpire’s hand after Nottingham final defeat

"It was very tricky out here, quite windy, and I'd never played her before", Konta told Eurosport.

Yet after fighting her way back into the match from a set down and then battling back to 4-4 from 4-1 down in the deciding set, the Australian-born Briton seemed to lose her composure.

After racing to a 0-40 lead Barty took advantage on the second of her match points to secure a second WTA title and condemn Konta to successive defeats in the final at Nottingham. You are making decisions that affect our lives.

One of Ash Barty's finest victories to date has been overshadowed by a dramatic display of poor sportsmanship from Brit Johanna Konta. "Do you fully understand that?" She then went off-court for a medical time-out which coincided with play being temporarily suspended anyway due to rain.

The win is Barty's second career WTA title, having triumphed past year at the Malaysia Open in Kuala Lumpur. The question was whether Barty would remain in her slump or return to her usual self. She was able to get the better of Kurumi Nara, Heather Watson and Dalila Jakupović on her way to setting up this semi-final encounter. "I know she's a crafty player and a very talented player on the surface so I know it's gonna be a tough match for me and I'm looking forward to that". "And it was a really good grass-court match too, in the sense that it was a bit serve-dominant at times".

Saving the first five break points she faced in the match, Barty looked on course to record her fifth straight sets victory in as many matches this week, only to see Konta make a late push to force a decider.

Barty got the first break in the fourth game of the third set as Konta's usually strong backhand cross-court proved to be detrimental for her in the first half in the deciding set, but she rallied away, remained resilient and tried to believe in her quest for the Nottingham title, hoping to do one better than past year.
