Konta still hoping for Wimbledon 2020 chance

British star Johanna Konta remains hopeful that she will be able to fully recover from a nagging long-term knee injury in time to feature at Wimbledon this summer.

Wimbledon 2020 is in some doubt due to the ongoing halt called to professional tennis, with the French Open having already been moved to much later in the year.

However, Konta is determined to remain positive for the future, even if her training schedule has been somewhat affected by the current situation.

"I have some equipment at home so I am able to train, but it's by no means ideal", she told The Guardian.

"I am trying to make the best of the situation, (but it) is not ideal for the knee.

"I think more than anything it's important to be hopeful, nothing wrong with being hopeful. For me it's about not looking too far ahead - we don't know how it is going to develop.

"Now we know we are not playing until the beginning of June, that's the date we are working towards. When that changes, if it changes, we react to whatever comes next."

Konta reached the quarter-finals at SW19 last year, while in 2017 she made it all the way to the semi-finals - where she was beaten by Venus Williams.
