    Johanna Konta's relationship with Britain's tennis media turns sour as she accused them of "picking on her"

    Johanna Konta's often tetchy relationship with Britain's tennis media corps has turned sour again as she accused them of "picking on her" after her quarter-final loss to Czech Barbora Strycova at Wimbledon


    Konta powered into a 4-1 lead against the unseeded Strycova but things turned ugly as she slumped to a 7-6 6-1defeat.

    Konta blazed 34 unforced errors but reacted with disdain when that was pointed out to her.

    She says you don't need to pick on her in a harsh way.

    Strycova will face seven times champion Serena Williams for a place in the final.

    TENNIS WITH CROWN FORKLIFTS. WHEN IT COMES TO FORKLIFTS, THERE'S NOTHING LIKE A CROWN.
