    What a shock, no one expected that after the first set. Vekic celebrates with her entourage and then sits down in the chair and does a dance.

    What a moment for the 20-year-old.

    Vekic races into a 30-0 lead as she powers a return straight at Konta's toes.

    The Croatian strains every muscle to chase the returns in the next point and gets two break points as Konta sends a return long.

    The first goes begging as Vekic struggles to return a drop shot.

    She takes the game, with her trusted baseline hitting as Konta can only slap a forehand at the net.
