LONDON, Great Britain - Revenge was sweet for Johanna Konta as she dominated Hsieh Su-Wei in a 6-2, 6-2 win at Wimbledon.
Konta was looking to avenge her French Open first-round defeat at Hsieh's hands, and began well with a sound early break of serve.
Using her superior size and power, she doubled the break and served out the first set in quick time, perhaps taking her opponent a little by surprise.
Both players, however, will have remembered that the British No.1 also took the first set in Roland Garros before losing in a decider.Konta started the second equally as well, with another early break of serve, and from that point she was dominant.
Hsieh sent a limp backhand into the net to concede a double break, and Konta was cruising from then on, taking the opportunity to serve it out in just over an hour - and doing so in style, holding to love.
"It doesn't take much for there to be a momentum swing or for her to gain some more footing on the court," Konta told reporters afterwards. "I knew that in the match, that it was going to be tricky till the very end. She's quite a tricky player to play. She doesn't give you too much rhythm.
"I was really just trying to stay as focused on what I was trying to do out there, and not necessarily get caught up in her web."
