Injured Konta out of Eastbourne, doubt for Wimbledon

After her heavy fall in the quarter-final, Johanna Konta withdrew from her Aegon International semi-final with a thoracic-spinal injury.

Konta will now face Karolina Pliskova, who beat Russia's Svetlana Kuznetsova, in the semi-finals on Friday.

Compatriots Heather Watson, Laura Robson, Naomi Broady and Katie Boulter face Maryna Zanevska, Beatriz Haddad Maia, Irina-Camelia Begu and Christina McHale respectively.

Konta rose from a hard fall to the grass to wrap up her first win over a world No. 1, a 6-3, 6-4, triumph against top-seeded Angelique Kerber, in the last quarterfinal of the day.

'I'm still quite sore through my thoracic spine, ' Konta said. They swooped Djokovic on court and at 4-3 in the second he shouted: "Okay, I hear you." as they squawked above centre court. Right now I'm just resting for the next 24 hours.

Gunman killed in NY hospital shooting
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio was briefed on the shooting and was on his way to the scene, the mayor's Twitter account said. Sources tell NBC 4 NY a preliminary investigation reveals Bello resigned from the hospital in 2015 in lieu of termination.

"For us on the tour we have seen her around for many years".

Konta has been drawn opposite Su-Wei Hsieh of Chinese Taipei in the first round of this year's Wimbledon, which looked as though it might be her best-ever chance at major silverware. Konta's matches have been incredibly hotly contested, as one would expect victories against top players to be.

"I got checked out and I've got no signs of concussion", said Konta.

With both players serving out in the opening eight games of the first set Pliskova found the break through when she broke Kerber, reading the German's forehand to return excellently.

There she reached the last four and was only a painful semi-final defeat by Simona Halep away from becoming the world No 1.

Real chief has say on Man United and Milan target Rodriguez
One Real player who United might have better luck with is South American playmaker James Rodriguez. The Real Madrid star struggled to get game time under Zinedine Zidane last season.

The world No.7 is now looking forward takeing on the French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko in the next round.

Wozniacki said playing back-to-back matches Thursday - as organizers played catch-up with the schedule after rain delays early in the week - contributed to her injury.

"She is a good player, has a great volley, mixes it up and serves well on grass, so a lot of credit to her".

"It's going to be a tough match".

Konta is in the bottom half of the draw and as such will be scheduled to open play on Monday at Wimbledon.
