Johanna Konta has already rewritten several chapters of the British history books, but the big remaining question is whether she can achieve the greatest feats of the game.
Prior to her semi-final run at Wimbledon, the hardcourts always looked the most likely surface for Konta's success, having recorded semi-final and then quarter-final runs at the Australian Open.
Successive fourth-round runs at Flushing Meadows are a solid, if unspectacular, platform to build on, although last year's defeat to unseeded Anastasija Sevastova represented a disappointment.
If a reality check was what Konta needed after her Wimbledon exploits then Toronto provided it, with an opening exit to Ekaterina Makarova, while a better performance was produced in Cincinnati as she reached the quarter-finals, losing 6-4 7-6 to Simona Halep.
The 26-year-old will have to produce better if she is to land her maiden major but, amid a wide-open field and having thrived on the pressure of SW19, is well equipped to mount a charge.
