    Haha she called the journalist out for daring to ask if she could have done better.

      Her answers to the questions was equally pathetic
      I know she's British, well "British", but I can't stand her. That journo said nothing you wouldn't expect him to and yet Balding talked of her being "understandably riled". Christ on a bike, pathetic fawning. I wonder whether it's because they've spent all week fawning all over her, or whether it's because she's female.

      It does seem one rule for one and one for another - that goes for the sport and gender of the player.

      Murray, Henman, Rusedski got this line of questioning every major, every year and each achieved more.

      Konta got off lightly after her “performance” in the French open semi, any of the above would have been slaughtered.

      The line of questioning was fine, unless she changes her attitude/game plan she won’t reach a major final.

      She lost 12 games in a row to a non seeded 33 year old - That should be questioned - even more so after she did something similar in the above mentioned french.

      Having been so brilliant against Petra Kvitova, and played her way into a position where she was serving for a 5-1 lead in the first set - serious questions being asked was only fair. I think the journalist was being a bit stern in tone but the question is perfectly fair. She has changed her mentality massively in the last couple of years but she does crumble. It's a bit harsh to call her out on it immediately after the match though, to be fair.

      This was a massive missed opportunity for her but Serena Williams in the semi-final wouldn't have been comfortable!

      I believe Rafa is her favourite, I think she likes a bit of rough.

      My prediction is that Federer will fall to Rafa or Djokovic and be well beaten by whichever one he meets, probably in straight sets. More difficult to predict which of Rafa or Djokovic will win though.
      How wrong can I be. Federer beats Nadal in four sets.

      I binned work an hour early to get out and watch the full match, I think Rafa Nadal is very close to retiring. He still plays some amazing points, clearly - but physically he looked drained from the third set, which is massively unlike him and I get the sense he's closer to retirement than Roger, despite being 5 years younger. Roger turns 38 next month! Amazing specimen.

      Nadal is still virtually unbeatable at the French Open, and has closed the gap in overall Grand Slams to Federer to 20-18. Great win for Federer today, but it was his favourite surface and the opposite for Nadal.
