Aegon International, Eastbourne, 1st round: Errani v Petkovic (15:00)

Errani leads the head to heads 3-2. Their last match was last October in Beijing. Errani won in 3 sets on a hard court. She also won at the French open last year.  They have never played on grass.

Errani has a losing record on grass. That really isn’t a surprise as grass play is really based around the serve. She has one of the weakest serves on tour.  She won 3 of her last 10 on grass.

Petkovic reached the quarter finals at Eastbourne last year and also the third round at Wimbledon.

Errani has been in really poor form over the last couple of months. Petkovic has been inconsistent too but with a better game for this surface she is rightly the favourite.  At 1.38 though she is a little on the low side.

Back Petkovic if she gets broken first.
