Johanna Konta’s alarming form continued as she slumped to a fifth straight defeat at the China Open.

The British number one was steamrolled 6-1 6-2 by world number 65 Monica Niculescu, with the 26-year-old’s hopes of reaching the WTA Finals in Singapore looking doubtful.

Konta’s game was littered with errors – 38 in total – as she was dispatched in 65 minutes.
