Konta happy despite final defeat

Johanna Konta says she was happy with her efforts in Beijing despite suffering defeat to Agnieszka Radwanska in the China Open final.

The British number one produced some excellent tennis on the way to the final but ultimately fell short of claiming the biggest title of her career as she went down 6-4 6-2 to Radwanska.

However it has been a landmark week for Konta, who became the first British woman for 32 years to break into the world top 10 since Jo Durie back in 1984.

Konta was happy with her performance and feels she is learning a lot by taking on some of the biggest names in the sport, like Radwanska.

She said: "I'm very pleased with this week, it was pretty spectacular.

"I'm really enjoying my journey and looking forward to matches like this against players like Agnieszka."
