Punters backing Johanna Konta for famous victory over Serena Williams
Patriotic punters are getting right behind Johanna Konta at the Australian Open, according to the latest odds.
The 25-year-old is the last Brit standing in Oz, and takes on Serena Williams tonight in the last eight.
And with 75 per cent of stakes placed on a Konta victory, it seems the Sydney-born Brit has all the support back in Blighty too.
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “Konta is on the verge of her greatest win yet, and the money is pouring in for the Brit.”
“And if she pulls it off she won’t be alone in her celebrations, with punters counting their winnings too.”
