Wimbledon is over for Konjuh Wimbledon is over for Konjuh Tonci Vlasic

Dubrovnik’s Ana Konjuh bows out of Wimbledon on the centre court

Written by  Jul 10, 2017

Dubrovnik's tennis sensation, Ana Konjuh, Wimbledon adventure is over in the fourth round. The 19 year-old Konjuh was stopped in the fourth round of this year’s Wimbledon by the tenth seed Venus Williams. After 65 minutes on the centre court Williams won 6:3 – 6:2 and moved into the quarter finals.

Williams was on the mark from the very start of the match and with her punishing service and accurate returns broke Konjuh. However after three straight wins and her first ever appearance on the centre court of the most prized tennis finals in the world Konjuh can be more than proud of her Wimbledon achievements.

It was in many ways a match of experience over youth. Williams is 18 years older than Konjuh, she has played seven finals on the centre court and has won every major tournament the game has to offer. Konjuh is at the beginning of a bright career and the experience gained from today’s match will no doubt stand her in good stead for the future.
