    4.40 mins - I doubt Federer would of been asked this question. Total lack of respect from that rude guy.

    Way to go Jo, take no notice of these press lizards. They all tipped Serena to win the final, which shows how much they know about tennis.

    Is Konta Hungarian for cxxx?
    Certainly looks like it!

    I was willing Johanna to say "I'll be going back over that match and the whole tournament with my team to see what can be learned but right now I haven't settled on the main learning points." The 3.30 questioner seemed to think she would have it all worked out already and that the lack of learning points at this stage indicates a fundamental character flaw in her. Answers that show a professional, team-based approach to preparation would also reduce the number of questions about her emotions and psychology, which are rather annoying.

    I agree with Johanna for reacting like that at the journalist. She did her best, and was just out done by a better player on the day. No need to start questioning her performance, and picking holes in her ability. That’s something for her and her coach to look at. Not some journalist who’s never played professionally to question her infront of the TV cameras.

    that question 3:30 is a typical British style, the journalist thinks he's being Simon Cowell and giving his opinion on her performance

    Why does she play for England?? Go back to Hungary Kunta!

      Curious why the English are reacting so negatively to the Hungarian Australian English player, it's not the first foreigner the English have in their sport, Kyle Edmund is South African, then there's Canadian Rusedski, same with English
      cricket it's full of foreigners. Does she play for England I thought it was Britain?

    Mainstream journalism in general is dying with the advent of online networks and social media where people can get their news instead, and I feel as a result journalists are becoming more biased, more extremist and more sensationalist.
    This whole interview was just 80% of the reporters baiting Konta into an angry response because it's the only way they can get people to read their clickbait articles and garbage content.

    What did the interview say at 4:07? It sounds like "IBM's". I couldn't understand what he said or meant.

  • k odu

    Anybody who thinks that Konta's level is enough for a Grand slam win does not understand Tennis. This journalist clearly overstepped his boundaries by wanting the English woman to win even if she was not ready.

    • k odu
      k odu 4 days ago

      @Henry Black They do the same thing with football. There is a feeling of entitlement because they invented football. The fact that Wimbledon is in the UK does not mean a British citizen should be harassed to win.

      Not English Australian Konta has three passports Hungarian Australian & British.
      Where's the English tennis players -- the men's British #1 is South African. What's
      very funny is England's sour grapes at Britain's greatest player not being English

  • Michael

    She chose to represent Britain and knew that would come with additional scrutiny and money. With that said, interviewing sports people has always seemed like a waste of time.

  • Mary Magdalene

    Maybe she is in a depression and that is the reason why she lost so big.

  • Mary Magdalene
    Mary Magdalene 5 days ago +1

    She was more concerned with her bruised ego than with really being open and honest. Yeah, the words were very measured and seemed to be selected by a "perfect answers" application , but they sounded , underneath it all, very defensive.

      That's because she's Australian with Hungarian parents.

    I actually think the question is fair. Watched her live against Kvitova and it was almost comical in the 3rd set, she was her own worst enemy and the groans were audible as she threw away chance after chance to end the match.

    Jo gave all she could to win that match and she is a wonderful player and good for her that she came back at the press. One day she will win Wimbledon I'm sure of that, GO GO JO JO!!!!.

    She is not good enuf to win a slam, the french open semi was a complete bottle job...embarrassing really. But these questions are ridiculous but she knows her failings bcos she wouldnt of reacted like that if she really believed what she was saying about having no regrets etc etc. She needs to grow up and accept that this is part and parcel of being a pro athlete. Murray gets alot more criticism for being a winner in an age of tennis titans.

    She was disappointing and these are the questions she should be asked. Her responses suggest she knows it all and has no room to improve. This is why she crumbles and loses. Top players dig in and have more than one strategy when things go wrong.

      @Jens Clarberg It was the manner of the questioning that annoyed Konta. He was rude. She did her best on the day. The same accusation could be levelled at many a tennis player actually. Same goes for any other sport.

    • cja sewell
      cja sewell 4 days ago +4

      @Jens Clarberg (The "unforced" stats are nonsense.) The wording and tone of the question was hostile and he wouldn't does not ask about errors in that way of male players.

    Is it really so bad to ask a player if there are any areas for improvement, the result speaks for itself and yet Konta is obviously blind to it. Keep losing then.

    I'm just astounded by the ignorance of the journalist here. I think that the initial questions were probing and critical but in a fair way. The third or maybe fourth question was ridiculous. She'd every right to be offended. Who does that guy think he is? If I was her, I'd refuse to answer his questions in future. I'm not a fan of players switching nationality and don't think that she should be representing Britain but it is what it is. This line of questioning was too strong.

    Johanna Konta has earned a lot of respect from his interview. She was trying to answer the questions as honestly as possible. The bad question WAS disrespectful and patronising. But, with no show of temper, she fixed him with a steely eye and icily put the reporter in his place. Well done, Johanna!
