FACTBOX-Tennis-Sloane Stephens v Johanna Konta

June 4 (Reuters) - A look at the records of American Sloane Stephens and Briton Johanna Konta before their quarter-final match at the French Open on Tuesday (prefix number denotes seeding):


Age: 26

WTA Ranking: 7 (Highest ranking: 3)

Grand Slam titles: 1 (U.S. Open 2017)

2018 French Open performance: Finalist

Best French Open performance: Finalist 2018

Stephens has emerged as one of the top contenders for the title at Roland Garros, and a second Grand Slam crown, with no major winners or finalists left in her side of the draw.

The 2017 U.S. Open champion has faced Konta twice already in 2019 and will look to avenge defeats in Rome and Brisbane as she bids to improve on her runner-up finish in Paris last year.


Age: 28

WTA Ranking: 26 (Highest ranking: 4)

Grand Slam titles: 0

2018 French Open performance: First round

Best French Open performance: Quarter-finals (2019)

Konta snapped a run of four straight first-round defeats to advance in Paris and become the first British woman to reach the French Open quarter-finals since Jo Durie in 1983.

Inconsistency has dogged Konta’s game in the past couple of years but a maiden Grand Slam title could be the ideal platform for a strong second half of the season.

HEAD-TO-HEAD: Konta leads 2-0

2019 Konta d Stephens 6-7(3) 6-4 6-1 (Rome, clay)
