Johanna Konta has revealed that she is “feeling good” ahead of her clay-court campaign. She has endured a stop-start last one and a half year and now is looking forward to a regular run of events. Konta had a knee problem late in 2019 and has managed to play just 13 events since then. She managed to win two matches in a week on just two occasions since then.
Johanna Konta has been able to maintain her ranking because of the new ranking system. The ranking system was changed because of the travel restrictions all over the world. But with the old ranking now back in place, Konta faces an uphill task. She reached the final in Rome in 2019 as well as the semi-finals of the Rolland Garros in 2019.
“Overall I’m feeling good,” Konta said. “It’s been a hard process to be at the physical capabilities that I am at now and it’s nice to be able to do the kind of training that I am doing now again, which I hadn’t been able to do for a very long time because of the different challenges.”
“So I’m really pleased with that and hopefully this will give me the best possible base to be able to play my best. The ranking will do what it needs to do and I go out there looking to do my best. That has always been where I’ve left it.” she added.
