Johanna Konta returns to action with defeat against Shelby Rogers

The British number one has recovered from an abdominal injury.

Johanna Konta lost her first match since withdrawing from the Australian Open following a straight-sets defeat to Shelby Rogers at the Adelaide International.

The British number one was forced to curtail her participation at the opening major of the year midway through her first-round clash against Kaja Juvan with an abdominal injury.

And on her return to action, the third seed was comfortably outplayed by the in-form Rogers, who won 6-2 6-2 in one hour and 12 minutes to book her place in the last eight.

It marks a further setback for Konta, 29, who endured a troubling 2020 campaign due to ongoing issues with a knee injury.

Speaking on court after the match, American Rogers, who reached the fourth round of the Australian Open, said: "I started the match really well with a quick break and I kept the momentum going.

"I knew I had to bring my best game for Jo, who can serve you off the court whenever she wants. I was very happy with my return game tonight and I am excited to be in the quarter-finals."

Rogers awaits the winner of Coco Gauff's last-16 clash with sixth seed Petra Martic.
