Johanna Konta's Tennis Game Fumbling Even With the Coach She Choose Herself! What Does This Mean To Her Ranking?
All the main events of Wimbledon have now concluded for this year, and we have got our winners for 2017 as well. While a group of winners cheered to celebrate their success, there was another group of players who got to taste the bitter truth and discover their lagging factors.
One of the tennis stars to experience the bitter side this year is Johanna Conta, who failed to claim the Wimbledon women's title. The British player lost against the five-time champion, Venus Williams, who put a stoppage in her aim to become the first British woman to win the title.
Well, we must say, she failed to claim the women's title despite having the preferred coach of oneself. So, what changes does this loss make to the WTA ranking of the British player?
Johanna Conta In Wimbledon 2017:
The 26-year-old Johanna Conta started off the Grand Slam with a revenge victory over a Taiwanese player Hsieh Su-Wei in the Round of 128. Jo won in straight sets 6-2 6-2 playing against Hsieh who showed her the way out in the French Open 2017.
Jo then continued her outstanding performance in the following matches too and made her way to the quarterfinals, where she faced Romanian player Simona Halep.
Along with her dad Gabor Conta and panel of coaches, her boyfriend Jackson Wade also accompanied her in the major quarterfinal round, where she faced a tough competition against the Romanian.
Well, it wasn't Wade's first time cheering for the lady, he has been doing so in many matches. Jo has been dating her photographer boyfriend since her victory at Miami open in April 2017.

The home player seems to be playing too defensive to win Grand Slam as told by the former Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli.
However, in an interview, she said that she could win the title shortly.
"I feel there is no reason why I would not be in a position to win a title like this one day."
Moreover, she further expressed to be excited for herself and her coach, Wim Fissette, the team as a whole. According to her, she has a lot more to work on to win the title.
" I'm not satisfied with where I am now. I want to keep pushing myself to be the best I can be. I definitely have a lot more to improve on. It is exciting for me and exciting for my team."
She summoned the Wimbledon experience as memorable and even took to Twitter after the match to thank her fans.
While the winner of the Wimbledon women's title 2017, Garbine Muguruza, succeeded to be at the bottom of the WTA Top 5 Rank; the home player, Johanna, also successfully managed to be on the same list. She has upgraded her position to fourth from the seventh rank, with 5,110 points in her bag for now.
Congratulations to her for her new rank!
Along with that, we also want to congratulate the winner of other main events of the Grand Slam, especially the Men's title winner, Rogerer Federer, for creating a history by winning the trophy for the maximum of eight times.
