The British No.1 said, “I’m fine, Whatever comes, I’m enjoying it. I would have to be a real princess to start complaining now.”

Konta has little reason to complain. She is in the form of her life and is guaranteed prize money of £370,000 after her extended run Down Under.

She was ranked 47 in the world before this tournament and her exploits mean she is likely to break into the world’s top 30 on the back of her success in Melbourne.
