Johanna Konta argues with journalist in Wimbledon

Johanna Konta was involved in a controversy on Tuesday in Wimbledon. A journalist, analyzing her loss to Barbora Strycova, told her: "Looking at numbers, 33 unforced errors, then you had a smash at the net which you hit straight to her, then towards the end of the second set, you had a double-fault, then missed a drive volley.

Do you not have to look at yourself a little bit about how you cope with these big points? It's all very well saying it's a lot to do with your opponent, but there were key points when you perhaps could have done better.

"I mean, I don't think you need to pick on me in a harsh way", replied Konta. "I mean, I think I'm very open with you guys. I say how I feel out there. If you don't want to accept that answer or you don't agree with it, that's fine.

I still believe in the tennis that I play. I still believe in the way I competed. Yeah, I don't have much else to say to your question. Please don't patronize me. No, no, you are. In the way you're asking your question, you're being quite disrespectful and you're patronizing me. I'm a professional competitor who did her best today, and that's all there is to that."
