Just look at that smile! A beaming Jo Konta lifting her latest prize in an increasingly-productive career is the only image we can leave you with tonight.

Could we see a similar photo later this year? But with that glass vase replaced by Wimbledon's famous silver salver perhaps?

We can all dream...

Oh, and thanks for the reminder Greg...

Jo Konta will now rise to SEVENTH in the world rankings - her highest position - after beating former number one Caroline Wozniacki.

The Briton also climbs to second on the Road to Singapore leaderboard - which charts the leading players so far this season - behind Karolina Pliskova.

Gracious words from Caroline Wozniacki before she collects her runners-up trophy. 

"Congratulations to Johanna, you played better than me today," says the Dane.

Konta wins the Miami Open

Konta 6-4 6-3 Wozniacki

The biggest moment in British women's tennis since Virginia Wade won Wimbledon in 1977? That's what some of the experienced journalists in the Miami press room reckon. I'm not disagreeing.

Konta 6-4 6-3 Wozniacki

Jo Konta breaks into a beaming smile, dropping her racquet to the ground as Wozniacki is unable to scramble back an inch-perfect lob.

She jogs off court to celebrate victory with her nearest and dearest.

Game, set and match - Konta wins Miami Open

Konta 6-4 6-3 Wozniacki

She can!

Jo Konta wins the biggest title of her career. She's the Miami Open champion - the first British woman to claim that honour.

Konta 6-4 5-3 Wozniacki*

Jo Konta is one game away from the biggest title of her career. Can she break Wozniacki's serve and do it at the first opportunity?

Konta 6-4 5-3 Wozniacki*

I've said this a few times tonight but.... this is a HUGE hold for Jo Konta. 

The Briton sees a 30-0 lead wiped out when she smacks a backhand into the net, a half smile showing how annoyed she is with herself.

But she blocks out that anger, refocuses and sees out her serve.

Konta breaks

*Konta 4-3 Wozniacki

Now then! Johanna Konta has just turned the bend and is heading down the final straight. 

Caroline Wozniacki produces a poor game when it really matters, going 0-40 down before saving a couple of those break points. 

But she can't save the third and Konta is now two holds of serve away from the title. Easy said than done on the evidence of the past 90 minutes or so...

Konta 3-3 Wozniacki*

Anyone wondering why these two look so nervy might be keen to know the winner takes home. Their bank account will be boosted by a sum of $1175,505 - that's about £937,105.39. Roughly.

Not a bad week's work.

Konta 3-3 Wozniacki*

My nerves are taking a pounding just watching these two. 

Jo Konta appears to be cruising, only to see her 40-15 lead disappear to deuce in a flash. A double fault gives Wozniacki a lifeline, before the Briton goes back to a serve which has been so successful this week - the ace out wide.

*Konta 2-3 Wozniacki

Oh Jo! Konta racks up another break point as she takes Wozniacki to deuce, but lets the Dane off the hook. Wozzy rattles off three points on the bounce to hold. Turning point? We'll see...

Konta 2-2 Wozniacki*

That break does not seem to have helped shift Jo Konta's nerves. A double fault - her first of the match - brings Wozniacki level at 15-15, then she plants a routine forehand into the net at 40-15.

But the Briton regains her composure to see out an important hold.

*Konta 1-2 Wozniacki

All sorted. Caroline Wozniacki pulls her grey sock back over her right foot, squeezing into her bright yellow trainer.

Back to business. Konta to serve...

*Konta 1-2 Wozniacki

Caroline Wozniacki has a problem. She's calls a medical timeout at the changeover to get some attention for her right ankle. Trainer off, sock off, strapping applied. There is even time for a laugh with the doctor. Maybe she's a stand-up comedian in her spare time.

*Konta 1-2 Wozniacki

Hurrah! A hold, and a comfortable one at that. 

Caroline Wozniacki produces her best service game of the match at a crucial time for her, thundering down her first ace on the way to a hold to love.

Wozniacki breaks back

Konta 6-4 1-1 Wozniacki*

And as if we needed further confirmation that nerves were playing a big part, here's some more. Another shaky service game, this time from Konta, is the seventh break of serve in the match. Extraordinary.

*Konta 6-4 1-0 Wozniacki

Russell Fuller

BBC tennis correspondent

It is not surprising there are so many nerves on display with so much at stake.

Wozniacki will move to the top of the 2017 rankings race with a win: Konta up into second.

Those two consecutive double faults in the ninth game of the first set cost Wozniacki dear and Konta is deservedly shading things for now.

Konta breaks

*Konta 6-4 1-0 Wozniacki

Just like the first set, Johanna Konta snaffles an early advantage. But it wasn't as easy as you might think. Caroline Wozniacki saves three break points to force deuce, then bats off a fourth. But Konta continues to hammer at the door, forcing it open when Wozniacki's resistance finally crumbles.

Konta 6-4 0-0 Wozniacki*

Jo Konta has a word with her coach Wim Fissette at the end of the first set. Whatever he said has worked... Konta races into a 0-40 lead in Wozniacki's opening service game.

Game and first set - Konta

Konta 6-4 Wozniacki

She can! Phew. 

It is not a smooth-sailing hold for Jo Konta, who has to brush off two break points before clinching the first set.

A wonderful first serve at 15-40 sets the platform, Woznaicki scrambling a return and Konta clubbing a forehand to safety.

She goes out wide again to force deuce, then completes the job to take the first set in 45 minutes.

Meltdown alert.

Caroline Wozniacki loses her cool at the worst possible time, coughing up successive double faults. She might well have handed over the break points with a bow. An absolute gift.

Johanna Konta snaffles the chance at the first chance - now she will serve for the opening set.

Konta 4-4 Wozniacki*

Tight and tense from both players. Little wonder with the prize at stake.

Back on serve...

Wozniacki breaks back

Konta 4-4 Wozniacki

Caroline Wozniacki is clearly using that bust-up with umpire Kader Nouni to her advantage. Eyes narrow, glare icy. That's the look towards Nouni after she wins the first point on Johanna Konta's serve. If looks could kill...

Konta tightens up a little, allowing Wozniacki to force deuce.

One, two, three break points are fought off. But not the fourth. She overcooks a baseline return and grimaces.

*Konta 4-3 Wozniacki

Russell Fuller

BBC tennis corresponden

Konta started where she left off in Melbourne. The power that was so apparent in her crushing victory there helped her off to a flyer but Wozniacki has shown how she can stay competitive by varying her spin and taking some pace off the ball.

*Konta 4-3 Wozniacki

Caroline Wozniacki stays in touch - spurred on by a bit of a ding-dong with umpire Kader Nouni. At 40-15, the Dane reckons she is put off by a late call from a line-judge, telling Nouni that was the case. He's having none of it. She responds by slamming down a howitzer of a serve, then gives the daggers to the umpire on her way past.

Konta 4-2 Wozniacki*

Are we going to see a hold? Yes! Just when Johanna Konta needed it.

There is a sticky moment for the Briton when Wozniacki sticks a lob over her head, moving into the net to volley in a winner for 30-30. 

But Konta responds with a 110mph ace down the T. And then she hammers down another first serve which Wozzy meekly bats back, allowing Konta to despatch with the power of a piston.

Konta breaks again

*Konta 3-2 Wozniacki

Caroline Wozniacki will be furious with herself. She gained momentum from breaking Konta's service in the previous game - then hands it straight back.

More breaks here than there is at your local A&E department.
