  1. Vekic breaks back

    Konta 6-2 4-4 Vekic*

    Oh dear.

    What happened there? Konta looked a bit shaky in that game and it gives Vekic the chance to break back.

  2. Post update

    Konta* 6-2 4-3 Vekic

    Konta's forehand goes wide and it's break point Vekic.

  3. Post update

    Konta* 6-2 4-3 Vekic

    Konta's first-serve percentage was up at 77% at the end of the first set. It's now 66%.

    She's not quite up at the level she was playing in that first set and it's back to deuce again.

  4. Post update

    Konta* 6-2 4-3 Vekic

    Konta faults on her first serve and hesitates before taking her second. Is doubt creeping into her mind?

    Maybe not, she whacks a backhand and is serving for the game again.

  5. Post update

    Konta* 6-2 4-3 Vekic

    Vekic comes out firing. She slams a backhand and it lands on the baseline. Deuce.

  6. Post update

    Konta* 6-2 4-3 Vekic

    It looks as though Konta has hit a forehand winner, but wait! It's out. The umpire comes down to check... Nope, still out. 30-40.

  7. Post update

    Konta* 6-2 4-3 Vekic

    The fans who are there are getting behind the Brit, though. They clap as she serves for the game.

  8. Post update

    Konta* 6-2 4-3 Vekic

    Konta misses her first serve on the first two points, but makes amends with an ace. Two points from a 5-3 lead in the second set.

    She is enjoying her most successful French Open ever, but there still aren't many people there to see it on Suzanne Lenglen.

    Konta* 6-2 4-3 Vekic

    Naomi Cavaday

    BBC Radio 5 live tennis commentator at Roland Garros

    Johanna Konta has maintained such a high level through the match, she is settled and has purpose and intent. She looks so calm. Even when she was up at world number four in 2017, it was great when she was in the groove, blasting people off court, but it did also look a little frantic.

  10. Konta breaks

    Konta* 6-2 4-3 Vekic

    She's done it! Vekic hits another ball long and Konta breaks.

    She just needs to hold serve twice more (or, dare I say, hold and break!) to make it into her first French Open quarter-final.

  11. Post update

    Konta 6-2 3-3 Vekic*

    Konta sends Vekic running right and the Croat can't quite get round the ball. She hits it long and it's break point Konta.

  12. Post update

    Konta 6-2 3-3 Vekic*

    Woah. Konta is deep behind the baseline but hits a gorgeous backhand winner, which just lands in.

    Another cry of "come on" comes from Vekic as she evens things up at 15-15.

  13. Next up

    Roger Federer

    Incoming to Court Philippe Chatrier is his Royal Swissness, Roger Federer.

    The 20-time Grand Slam champion is taking on Argentina's Leonardo Mayer today for a place in the last eight.

    He has won all three of his previous meetings with the world number 68.

    Same again?

  14. Post update

    Konta 6-2 3-3 Vekic*

    Konta puts in a speedy second serve, but hits the next ball long. This service game might not be as simple as it looked initially...

    Oh wait, Konta hits another ace. She holds.

  15. Post update

    Konta* 6-2 2-3 Vekic

    Smart play from Konta. She's mixing things up on every point.

    The Brit double faults to give Vekic a look-in, though. 15-40.

  16. Post update

    Apparently Petra Martic has a glass of red wine every time she wins. I could get on board with that.

  17. Martic into last eight

    Petra Martic

    Donna Vekic's fellow Croat Petra Martic is into the last eight.

    She came from a set down to beat Estonia's Kaia Kanepi 5-7 6-4 6-2. She will play Czech teenager Marketa Vondrousova in the quarter-finals.

  18. Post update

    Konta* 6-2 2-3 Vekic

    Konta decides to liven things up as she takes a 30-0 lead on Vekic's serve.

    The Croat quickly levels things and Konta blinks first in a lengthy rally, hitting the ball long.

    Vekic holds as the clock reaches an hour.

    Jonathan Jurejko

    BBC Sport at Roland Garros

    Jo Ko completely trusts her game at the moment. That’s illustrated when she puts away another crunching forehand in that comfortable hold, increasing her tally of winners to 20.

  20. Post update

    Konta 6-2 2-2 Vekic*

    Konta hits a backhand winner, then follows it up with an ace and a forehand winner.

    The Brit makes an error, hitting the ball long, but it's still a straightforward hold.

    This is a far cry from the start of the first set, when people were breaking serve all over the place.
