More rain delays. It’s getting boring now!
Head to heads are 2-2. Their last match was in August last year in Canada. Watson won in straight sets on a hard court. Vesnina won their only match on grass at this tournament in 2013.
Watson reached the semi finals in 2014 and the third round last year. Her form’s been a little erratic lately though she usually responds well to playing at home.
Vesnina won this title in 2013. She lost in the qualifying rounds last year. She has shown decent form this year but this is her first match on grass in 2016. We have some value on Vesnina. I can see this going to 3 sets.
Lay Watson if she breaks first.
