Johanna Konta will re-enter the Top 10 on Monday, reclaiming her justified place among the game's elite, moving to a career-high of No.7 if she can win the biggest title of her career at the Miami open 2017 on Saturday. The 25-year-old Brit has consolidated her breakout 2016 season with a blistering start to the season, having now advanced to her second Premier Mandatory final in the last six months.
Konta may have flown under the general radar for much of her 18-month rise, but she has done everything in 2017 to prove last year was no fluke. Since the start of the 2016 season, Konta is 9-6 against Top 10 opposition. She's for real.
