Johanna Konta beats Dominika Cibulkova to reach quarter-finals Cincinnati Open

Friday, 18 August 2017 :  Britain’s Johanna Konta won a hard-hitting contest against Slovakian Dominika Cibulkova to reach the Cincinnati Open quarter-finals.

The seventh seed won 6-3 6-4 to reach the last eight for the first time, setting up a rematch of her Wimbledon quarter-final against Simona Halep.

Romanian second seed Halep beat Latvian 15th seed Anastasija Sevastova 6-4 6-3.

Rain halted several third round ties, with top seed Rafael Nadal yet to start his match against Albert Ramos-Vinolas.

The winner of that all Spanish contest will face either Ivo Karlovic or Nick Kyrgios in the last eight – the Croatian led 4-3 when that match was postponed – with the victors due to play twice on Friday.

Bulgarian seventh seed Grigor Dimitrov beat Argentine Juan Martin del Potro for the first time in six attempts, coming through 6-3 7-5 to set up a quarter-final against Japan’s Yuichi Sugita.

In the other men’s quarter-finals, Austrian third seed Dominic Thiem will face Spain’s David Ferrer, while American John Isner takes on compatriot Jared Donaldson.
