US Open: How does Johanna Konta compare to former British stars?

:Headline: US Open: How does Johanna Konta compare to former British stars?:
Konta has won three singles titles on the WTA Tour but a Grand Slam continues to elude her.
PA | 1mo

Johanna Konta will attempt to become the first British woman to reach the semi-finals at all four Grand Slam events in the Open era when she faces Elina Svitolina at Flushing Meadows.

The 28-year-old has yet to beat the Ukrainian in four previous matches, with all four defeats coming on hard courts – the surface she will play on at the US Open later today.

As Konta bids for a little piece of history, the PA News Agency takes a look at how her Grand Slam record compares to former British stars.
