Johanna Konta wins 12 games in a row to claim China Open quarter-final win
British No 1 Johanna Konta advanced to the China Open semi-finals after fighting back in remarkable fashion from 4-0 down in the first set to clinch victory over home favourite Zhang Shuai.
Konta, the world No 14, bounced back emphatically from her slow start, winning the next 12 games in a row for a 6-4, 6-0 triumph.
The 25-year-old 11th seed is aiming to force her way into contention for the WTA Finals in Singapore later this month and she certainly looked to be on a mission against Zhang, ranked 36 in the world.
