British number one Johanna Konta passed a major test before Wimbledon as she edged past French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko in Eastbourne.

World number seven Konta, 26, won 7-5 3-6 6-4 against her 20-year-old Latvian opponent, a surprise victor at Roland Garros earlier this month.

Konta, the fifth seed, will play world number one Angelique Kerber in the quarter-finals later on Thursday.
