Konta 'very proud' to be British

Britain's Johanna Konta says she feels "very proud" to be British after as she beats Hungarian Timea Babos to reach the US Open second round.

The 21-year-old was born in Australia to Hungarian parents but switched allegiance to Britain in May having lived in England since 2005, and has now secured the first victory of her career at Grand Slam level after eventually winning 6-2 7-5 against Babos on Tuesday.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live afterwards Konta says she's "very happy" with the way she played and is looking forward to her second-round match against Olga Govortsova.
