Johanna Konta racked up her 300th career win but not in the way she would have wanted after Tara Moore's retirement at the Aegon Open in Nottingham.

The British number one was well on the way to the landmark victory, leading 6-2 3-0, when her compatriot withdrew after suffering a left foot injury.

Konta was bossing matters in the first-round tie with her consistency, taking the first set with two breaks of the 24-year-old's serve.

It was three games without reply for Konta in the second set when British number four Moore called it a day.

Konta, top seed in Nottingham, was then presented with a celebratory bunch of flowers on court after the match to celebrate the milestone victory.

She now faces Belgian Yanina Wickmayer in the second round.
