Johanna Konta followed up her stunning victory over Serena Williams with another brisk triumph Wednesday, downing U.S. teenager Sofia Kenin 6-1, 6-4 to reach the quarterfinals of the WTA hard-court tournament in San Jose.The tournament lost another big name when top-seeded Spaniard Garbine Muguruza pulled out of the tournament with a right arm injury, hours before she was to face former world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka for a place in the quarters.For Konta, however, it was full speed ahead.The Briton needed just 70 minutes to dispatch Kenin, blasting 20 winners – including nine aces – with just 13 unforced errors.Konta, a former world No. 4 now ranked 48th, next faces fourth-seeded Elise Mertens of Belgium for a place in the semifinals.
