Johanna is not just a great tennis star – she’s a star of British Tennis! She was recently the first British woman in 36 years to reach the semi-finals of the French Open. You can be sure that we were cheering her on like crazy during her whole match – and we’ll be crossing our fingers for Wimbledon too!
We share a few “fun facts” about Johanna’s career on our Johanna Konta, Stars of Tennis Postcard for your children to collect.
Our favourite quote from Johanna Konta
It’s really easy to be disappointed after losing a match, and when they lose, some players lose sight of the great things that they’ve achieved. So that’s why we love Johanna’s down-to-Earth, positive attitude. After she lost in the Semi-Finals at the 2019 French Open Johanna said,
“There is nothing for me to be disappointed in or upset about” … “I lost a tennis match, but I also won five. I can only take the good things from that.”
We think everyone should approach their wins and their losses in that spirit. You can read this quote in an article on the WTA website.
