Konta, ranked 43rd in the world after starting the year in ninth, prevailed 6-7 6-1 6-2.

She was pegged back from a 3-0 lead in the opening set and lost a tie-break 8-6 to the 2017 French Open champion.

Konta will face Belarusian Victoria Azarenka in the second round after the two-time Grand Slam winner beat France’s Kristina Mladenovic 6-0 6-1.

Also through is Maria Sharapova, who beat fellow Russian Daria Kasatkina in straight sets.

Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber and Petra Kvitova, a two-time winner at the All England Club, have also taken their places in the last 32.
