British star Johanna Konta wants to leave lasting impression with Wimbledon run

But despite her remarkable rise up the rankings, this was only Konta's second singles win at Wimbledon in six appearances in the main draw.

Konta bludgeoned her way to a 6-2 6-2 victory in just over an hour.

At 5ft 7in, Hsieh often finds her opponents towering over her, putting the 31-year-old at an obvious disadvantage.

Having never been the type to give away much in public there was only one place for Konta to end the gnashing of teeth over her back once and for all.

And one who beat TWO Grand Slam champions in a matter of hours last week when she saw off French Open victor Jelena Ostapenko and world No1 Angelique Kerber - despite suffering the almighty crash to the turf on match point against the latter. However, again, it doesn't take much for there to be a momentum swing or for her to gain some more footing on the court.

Hsieh was shaky on serve throughout.

Konta raced through the second set as she moved a double break up to lead 5-1, missing two match points before serving out an easy victory with an ace down the middle. "I'd like to think that I will be going into the match with a clear game plan and trying to execute that as best as I can".

And so it proved as Hsieh's unorthodox, scoopy style caused Konta few issues here.

¿Naciste entre 1977 y 1983? Enhorabuena, eres de la generación Xennial
Atención si naciste entre 1977 y 1983: eres una generación bisagra.la última que recordará cómo era la vida antes de internet. No tuviste celular hasta que llegaste a la universidad, por ejemplo, y no estás para que te llamen la generación del futuro .

A theme of their match in Paris was Konta's inability to capitalise on her superiority, so it infuriated her she squandered a 40-0 lead in the next game and wafted a forehand wide to let Hsieh back into the set.

Hsieh somehow managed to hold onto that game but the respite was not for long.

Back problem? Back in the groove and no problem, more like.

This was looking like another dizzying week for a player who became Britain's first female Grand Slam semi-finalist since Jo Durie in 1983 at the 2016 US Open, as she defeated both new French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko and Kerber on the same day.

"I'm very happy to come through that". She is a very tricky player on any surface and she obviously beat me in a tight three-set match at the French Open. I said after I'd hit on Sunday, that that was kind of the first test to see how I was doing.

Konta is one of the favourites to win this year's SW19 - and claim her first Grand Slam on home soil.

When asked how the added pressure feels, she beamed: "It's a massive compliment". I live it for the whole season and try to really perform the best that I can in every event that I enter.

"That said, I definitely would like to be involved here for the full fortnight to help put tennis on the map that much more".
