WTA Aegon Classic, Birmingham, 1st round: Doi v Konta (17:00)

Konta  leads their previous meetings 3-1. Their last match was on clay in May this year. Doi won in 3 sets. Konta won their only grass match in 2013.

Doi occasionally manages a decent match on grass. She rarely strings two main draw matches together on thisn surface and hasn’t done so since this tournament in 2012.

Grass is Konta’s best surface and I expected her to do well last week but she lost to Zheng in the 2nd round. I can’t trust her at 1.36 until she finds her grass form.  She is worth a lay at 1.20 to 1.25 .

I would expect Konta to win but confidence isn’t high after last week
