Johanna Konta is feeling good again back on her home grass courts. The Brit today ended a 4-year title drought beating Zhang Shuai 6-2, 6-1.

Konta, whose last title came back at 2017 Miami where she beat Caroline Wozniacki, was a 2-time Nottingham finalist reaching back-to-back finals in 2017 and 2018.

The 30-year-old Konta collected her fourth overall career WTA title, and first on grass.

“I feel very grateful, very fortunate for the match I played today, and also very fortunate for the matches I played throughout the week to put myself into a position to even be playing for the title,” the top-seeded Konta said. “To be back in the final, it’s a privilege, and I feel very lucky and I’m really pleased.”

The 32-year-old Zhang was also trying to end a 4-year title drought.

Konta is ranked No. 30, she made a career-high No. 4 back in July 2017.
