Konta loses to Muguruza

Delayed because of seagull droppings, fans falling asleep in the crowd and a 3AM finish: Konta loses to Muguruza in three sets after latest-ever start to Australian Open match

MIKE DICKSON IN MELBOURNE: Absurd and dramatic, Jo Konta’s Australian Open hopes came to an end at 3.12am after an agonising defeat that threatened to run towards breakfast time. Delayed in part because an alternative court was covered in seagull droppings, the British No 1’s early hours shift came to nothing when she was beaten 6-4, 6-7, 7-5 by former Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza.
