There was good news over night for British number one and two, Johanna Konta and Heather Watson, after the duo both reached the quarter-finals of the Monterrey Open in Mexico.
Konta saw off Belgium’s Yanina Wickmayer in two hard fought sets, beating her lower-ranker opponent 7-6 (8-6) 7-6 (7-4) after two hours and four minutes.
That means the 24-year-old sets up her second quarter-final of 2016, having reached the last four at the Australian Open, where she will face Kirsten Flipkens or Alison van Uytvanck.
Meanwhile Heather Watson was also in action, and she too beat her second-round opponent, Slovenia’s Polona Hercog, 6-2 6-3 to earn her place in the last eight.
The result is a good return to form for Watson, who lost in the first rounds of the Australian Open and the Mexican Open in Acapulco earlier this year, and she will meet either second seed Caroline Wozniacki or Mirjana Lucic-Baroni next up.
