Nature Valley Open: Angry Johanna Konta loses in Nottingham final

WTA International- Nature Valley Open

"It's an absolute joke", fourth-seeded Konta told Souza.

Barty had just closed out a service hold for 5-4 after one of her groundstrokes looked to have flown an inch or two long, and Konta - who had been frustrated by another close call a few minutes earlier - stormed up to the chair to have her say.

One of Ash Barty's finest victories to date has been overshadowed by a dramatic display of poor sportsmanship from Brit Johanna Konta.

Australia's Ashleigh Barty has continued her excellent run of form by booking her place in the final of the Nottingham Open and a clash with home favourite Johanna Konta. You are making decisions that affect our lives. Do you fully understand that?'

Konta then walked straight past Souza and off the court.

It was Barty's first tournament triumph of the year, the second of her career and a demonstration from the former junior Wimbledon champion that she could now even be an outside threat for the senior title at the grasscourt grand slam.

The Australian defeated No. 3 seed Naomi Osaka 6-3, 6-4 to make her second WTA final of the season.

"I think when I first got on the grass, I instantly felt comfortable".

Barty shows off her silverware. She was able to get the better of Kurumi Nara, Heather Watson and Dalila Jakupović on her way to setting up this semi-final encounter.

"She has defintely improved a lot since previous year as well, is playing incredibly well and so it is going to be a tough match for me, and I am looking forward to that". "And it was a really good grass-court match too, in the sense that it was a bit serve-dominant at times". The British No.1 saved a pair of break points in the seventh game of the second set which would've given Barty firm control of the match, and won the last three games to force a final set.

Konta had not dropped a set on her way to the final but was up against it in Nottingham after losing the first set to an inspired Barty.
