Watson won their only previous match. That was in August 2014 on a hard court. She won in straight sets.
Pliskova has been in excellent form this year. She reached the third round in Miami as a qualifier. She won an ITF tournament in February indoors.
Watson hasn’t had a bad season with just a couple of poor matches. She reached the 4th round in Miami and won the title in Monterrey in February.
I think this could be a close one so value is on Pliskova. She will need her serve to be at its best.
Lay Watson if she breaks first.
