    I used to think it was a foregone conclusion that she would get it. Not so sure now. However, she was this-close to having the record already after the Wimbledon and US Open finals last year. I think she can do it. It will be perhaps her most dramatic achievement yet.

    Konta served for the first set at 5-4 but was broken back to love, and then again to 15, to lose it 5-7. She then went an early break up in the second set but was broken straight back. Her serve has been working great recently so I imagine it’s the old problem of her nerves letting her down at key moments. Not watching it live though so can’t see how Bertens is playing

    Bertens is not serving great today, a lot of double faults for her, which is unusual, she's got one of the best serves on tour at the moment. And she's playing a bit nervous, possibly knows what winning today means for her ranking. Just not at her best today, but still able to fight enough to be in the match obviously. Konta is playing solid, taking chances and playing aggressive. Not amazing, but staying dialed into the match and giving herself chances since Kiki is not at her best today, with a real chance to win.

    6-2 in the third. Add Konta to the list of possible winners at RG.
    It will be the first Slam ever with a 128 players draw where 142 players can win it before it starts (add 16 qualifiers that will lose 7-6 in the third of the last qualies match)

    Konta is my pick this year to come in hot and flame out in the first round

    She’s never won a first round match there so it’s quite likely

    My thoughts exactly. 4th round at best. More of a threat at Wimbledon
