  1. Konta into the last eight

    Another big scalp to add to a collection that already includes Garbine Muguruza, Simona Halep, Venus Williams and Roberta Vinci for Johanna Konta.

    Many apologies for the loss of pictures from Eastbourne for some time during that third set. I hope you managed to catch the last couple of games when they returned and will join us tomorrow to see if Konta can make the semi-finals.

    Bye for now.

    Johanna Konta speaking to BBC Sport: "There are not words big enough to describe the support you the crowd have shown me, I really appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.

    "Both of us were playing at a really good level in parts and struggling to keep that up in others and I think I just managed to string a few points together today.

    "I am really happy that I was able to maintain my level as well as i could. 

    "Both Makarova and Petkovic are world-class players. I'm going to work on recovering now and getting ready for whoever I play."

  3. Game, set and match Konta

    Kvitova 7-5 4-6 0-6 Konta

    Johanna Konta claps palm against strings to celebrate after Petra Kvitova fails to run down a dropper down the middle.

    She came on very strong along the home straight as Kvitova faded badly.

    Kvitova's energy levels have really dipped and she must be wondering how on earth she is in this predicament. But how well Konta has put the disappointment of losing that first set behind her.

  5. Konta breaks

    Kvitova 7-5 4-6 0-5 *Konta

    Petra Kvitova prods a little cross-court shot just wide.

    Hawk-Eye can't save her.

    Johanna Konta has a chance to serve out for the last eight.

    And even if she doesn't this time, there are another two identical chances already loaded up in the pipeline.

  6. Konta with three break points

    *Kvitova 7-5 4-6 0-4 Konta

    There's the jugular. 

    Johanna Konta can land what would surely be the fatal blow here.

  7. Post update

    *Kvitova 7-5 4-6 0-4 Konta

    Johanna Konta consolidate the double break.

    The British number one needs just two of the next six games for a whopper of a win.

  9. Konta breaks

    Kvitova 7-5 4-6 0-3 *Konta

    Never mind the wheels, the axle, gearbox and furry dice have also fallen off Petra Kvitova's wagon.

    Johanna Konta is calmly picking off the carrion and, after failing to convert two break points at 15-40, gets the job done at a third attempt.

  10. Post update

    *Kvitova 7-5 4-6 0-2 Konta

    Johanna Konta chalks off one of the five service holds needed to to tie up this match.

    Not a lot coming in the opposite direction from Petra Kvitova - just the one point nibbled off the Briton's serve.

    Johanna Konta
  11. Konta breaks

    Kvitova 7-5 4-6 0-1 *Konta

    This match has more ebbs, flows, twists and turns than the Amazon.

    Petra Kvitova looks like she has run her batter flat. She offers up two break points and Johanna Konta pounces on the first.

    The Devonshire Park crowd are warming up nicely in the evening sun, but you sense there are still a few shocks and surprises left in the narrative.

  12. Post update

    You fancy some match stats?

    Sure. Johanna Konta is serving well, just as you have to to keep tabs on Petra Kvitova.

    She has a healthy first serve percentage of 72% and has landed with five ace.

    On we go...

  13. Game and second set Konta

    *Kvitova 7-5 4-6 Konta

    We are heading into a third and deciding set.

    Can Petra Kvitova exhume the scintillating form that carried off the first set?

    Can Johanna Konta grind harder than a dancefloor pest and finish the job?

    We are about to find out.

  14. Konta taken to deuce

    Kvitova 7-5 4-5 *Konta

  15. Two set points Konta

    Kvitova 7-5 4-5 *Konta

  16. Post update

    Kvitova 7-5 4-5 *Konta

    Johanna Konta has a little nudge and probe at the Petra Kvitova serve, but the Czech holds strong.

    Konta will have to serve out to take this to a third and deciding set.

  17. Post update

    *Kvitova 7-5 3-5 Konta

    Johanna Konta is staring down the barrel of Petra Kvitova's booming baseline game and is not taking a step backwards.

    He keeps her position up on the baseline and gets over the line with an exocet serve down the middle.

    Kvitova 7-5 3-4 *Konta

    Petra Kvitova's serves seem to be cannoning into stacked baked bean cans at the back of the court.

    There is a mighty metallic clatter as the ball streaks past Johanna Konta.

    I'm not sure what is back there, but the sound gets replayed a fair few times as she cruises to love service hold.

  19. Post update

    *Kvitova 7-5 2-4 Konta

    Johanna Konta with the whip hand now.

    Petra Kvitova's foot has slipped off the accelerator and she is sleepwalking towards a third set as she often does.

    Johanna Konta
  20. Konta breaks

    Kvitova 7-5 2-3 *Konta

    Johanna Konta takes first blood in the second set. 

    But she took first blood in the opener. And second blood. And still ended up swept away by Petra Kvitova's power.

    Steady now. A solid service hold required in the next game.
