But any momentum gained from that triumph may have been stalled somewhat with the news of the world number seven will play no part in the Premier clay-court event in Charleston.

“I’m very sorry to have to withdraw from Charleston, this is a great tournament and I was really looking forward to taking part,” Konta said.

“I was battling a slight shoulder injury and sickness during Miami which has taken hold since the end of the tournament.”
