Britain’s Johanna Konta raced to a first-round win at the Mexico Open, prevailing in straight sets against doubles partner Laura Siegemund.

The 27-year-old, ranked 45 in the world and seeded eight in Acapulco, needed just an hour and 11 minutes on court to triumph 6-3 6-2.

She took an immediate break of serve in the opening set and broke twice in the second before sealing the win on her first match point.
