A homeless Siberian Husky has predicted the winner of the women’s singles final at Wimbledon.

Konta, rescued by Battersea Dogs and Cats Home and named after Britain’s upcoming “queen of tennis” Johanna Konta, predicted her namesake for the win.

With the finals just around the corner, Konta and her fellow Battersea dogs - named after the qualifying players - visited Battersea Park’s tennis courts to try out their skills as ball dogs.

When presented with two buckets labelled ‘yes’ and ‘no’, she chose ‘yes’ for the tennis star.

Battersea Dogs & Cats Home’s Centre Manager Robert Young said: “Tennis starts with Love and that’s what our Battersea Wimbledon champions are looking for.

“It’s not their fault they’ve been abandoned and all they want is an ace new family who will see them as their world number one. We’re putting out a rallying call to find them new families.”
