Konta made a huge leap in the rankings in 2016 jumping more than 25 slots when she reached a career-high No. 9 before ending the year at No. 10. Her first WTA title came in 2016 with a victory over Venus Williams at the Bank of the West Classic. Konta surpassed her best grand slam appearances to date when she saw the semifinals of the Australian Open and the fourth round of the US Open. She fell in the quarterfinals to Angelique Kerber while representing the British Olympic team in Brazil. During her first debut in Miami, Konta advanced to the quarterfinals in 2016 and looks to emerge as a contender for the title.
