Britain’s Johanna Konta won her first title for four years by beating China’s Zhang Shuai at the Nottingham Open.

Konta, 30, had lost in the final at the Nottingham Tennis Centre in 2017 and 2018 but sealed a 6-2 6-1 success to claim a first grass-court title.

The top seed broke the serve of Zhang, 32, twice in the first set and then three more times in the second set as she secured her fourth WTA title.

Konta’s last title came in April 2017 with victory at the Miami Open.
