Wimbledon 2017: Konta reaches quarters 

Johanna Konta became the first British woman to reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals since 1984 with a hard-fought win over France's Caroline Garcia.

Sixth seed Konta won 7-6 (7-3) 4-6 6-4 on Court One to reach her third Grand Slam quarter-final.

The 26-year-old goes on to face second seed Simona Halep or Victoria Azarenka.

Defending champion Andy Murray will try to reach the last eight when he plays Frenchman Benoit Paire on Centre Court later on Monday.

It is 44 years since Britain had a man and woman in the Wimbledon quarter-finals, and 33 years since Jo Durie was Britain's last woman to make it that far.
