Great year so far for Karolina, wasn't looking the best on clay but really turned it round this week.
Aus Open SF
Indian Wells QF
Stuttgart 2R (had a bye)
In saying that, despite her poor showing at the French and also Madrid during her career, Konta hasn't been terrible in Rome.
Made the 3R each time she's played (2016 she beat then top 10 Vinci, 2017 she had a bye and beat Poots and took a set off Venus, 2018 she beat Rybarikova and Hsieh and...
If Pliskova and Bertens win their SF (which seems likely), the two will then battle for not only the title but also for the #2 ranking.
It puts them both in a good position for the French Open as both Pliskova and Bertens only have 3R points to defend.
It's going to be so tight at the French...
