Johanna Konta reached her second Wimbledon quarterfinal by coming from a set down to knock out two-time champion Petra Kvitova.

Konta, the only British player left in the tournament, won 4-6, 6-2, 6-4 on Centre Court. Konta missed two match points at 5-2 in the decider but served it out on her next opportunity when Kvitova sent a shot long.

Kvitova hit 40 winners to Konta's 22, but also had 34 unforced errors compared to 21.

In 2017, Konta became the first British woman since Virginia Wade in 1978 to reach the semifinals at the All England Club but she lost in the second round last year.

Konta also came from a set down to beat Sloane Stephens in the third round. She will next face Barbora Strycova.
