Croatia’s Donna Vekic shocked British number one Johanna Konta to win the Nottingham Open final.

The world number 70 came recovered from a disappointing first set to win 2-6 7-6 (7-3) 7-5.

Konta, 26, looked on course for her first grass title on home soil, but struggled with Vekic’s baseline hitting to lose the second set tie-break.

Vekic, 20, edged a tense decider to win her second WTA title, ahead of the start of Wimbledon on 3 July.
