Johanna Konta's Wimbledon dream ended today after she lost  6-7 (5-7) 1-6 to Barbora Strycova in her quarter-final on Centre Court.

Eastbourne's Konta lost the first set for the third successive match at Wimbledon.

The British No.1 led 4-1 against her unseeded Czech opponent but a host of errors helped Strycova recover the break and the 33-year-old won the tie-break 7-5.

The start of the second set was where Konta had seized control of the match against Petra Kvitova on Monday but here she immediately found herself in deeper trouble when she dropped serve in the second game.

The end was nigh when Konta blazed a forehand drive volley over the baseline to drop serve again in the sixth game, and a final error sealed a 7-6 (5) 6-1 victory for Strycova.

Konta made 34 unforced errors across the two sets as she was denied a meeting with Serena Williams in the Wimbledon semi-finals on Centre Court on Thursday.
