Johanna Konta has progressed to the quarterfinals of the French Open after defeating Donna Vekic 6-2, 6-4.

The British No. 1 and her Croatian opponent traded multiple breaks early in the opening set, before settling down briefly with holds of serve. Konta would break again for a 5-2 lead, however, and then serve out the set after fending off four break points.

Both players started the second set with more composure, neither facing a break point until the seventh game, when Konta secured a 4-3 lead.

Although Vekic immediately returned the favour to level the set with a break of her own, Konta rebounded quickly, setting herself up to successfully serve for the match, 6-2, 6-4.

The No. 26 seed made it past the first round at Roland Garros for the first time last week with a straight-sets win over Germany's Antonia Lottner, before reaching the fourth round with further victories against American Lauren Davis and Viktoria Kuzmova of Slovakia.

With her win over Vekic, Konta becomes the first British woman to reach the last eight at Roland Garros since 1983, when Jo Durie went as far as the semifinals.

Konta will next face No. 7 seed Sloane Stephens, who dismissed 2016 French Open champion Garbine Muguruza 6-4, 6-3 on Sunday afternoon. Konta defeated Stephens on clay in May, on her way to the Rome Masters final.
