WTA Aegon Open, Nottingham, 1st round: Rybarikova v Watson (17:00)

Watson  won their only previous meeting in 2015. She won in straight sets on a hard court. Stats on grass for the last 12 months favour Rybarikova.

Rybarikova has had some injury problems and has only played 2 tournaments since early March. She retired in an ITF tournament last month and was battered by Serena at the French Open. She reached the 3rd round at Wimbledon last year.

Watson also reached the 3rd round at Wimbledon and also at Eastbourne. She wasn’t impressive in her loss to Kuznetsova in Paris. No shame in losing to Kuznetsova and especially so on clay but Watson seemed a little clueless.

This one depends on Rybarikova’s fitness. If she is healthy then Watson is way too low at the start. Its worth a lay of Watson around 1.20
