Johanna Konta has progressed to the semi-final of the Nottingham Open after a straight-sets win over Dalila Jakupovic.

The world number 22 took 77 minutes to dispatch her world 118 opponent 6-4 6-2.

Konta needed to come from behind to take the first set after Jakupovic broke before going 3-1 ahead.

The British number one won four successive games from 4-2 down to take the opener.

Konta again went a break behind at the beginning of the second set, but struck back immediately.

The 26-year-old took a 4-2 lead before saving two break points. A break in the final game secured Konta’s victory.

Konta will play world number 42 Donna Vekic in the semi-final later this week.
