Heather Watson has been dealt one of the toughest early draws at Aegon Open where she will take on the in-form Elina Svitolina in the first round of WTA Birmingham on Monday. It has not been one of the bets draws for the second seed either since she could have faced much easier opponents than the Brit No 2 for her first match on the grass in 2017.
This will be the fourth head to head meeting between the two. Heather, interestingly, leads the tie by 2-1 and she has won their lone encounter on grass courts when the two met each other last year in Eastbourne’s second round. It is also very interesting to mention that each of their three clashes went in three sets.
Birmingham, being the hometown of her boyfriend Lloyd Glaspool, is one of the most favourite tournaments for Heather. Courts of Edgbaston’s Priory Club are also just a couple of hours drive from her home which is quite a rare occasion for any player on the tour. Heather opened the grass court season in a promising fashion as she reached the final of Surbiton ITF where Slovakian Magdalena Rybarikova was better in straight sets. Last week has, however, seen her falling to Alison Riske in the very opening round of WTA Nottingham in a match in which the current World NO 126 won no more than five games.
Elina Svitolina is back on courts after a shocking defeat at Roland Garros quarterfinal when she dropped the 5-1 lead in the second set after claiming the first with ease against Simona Halep. The Ukrainian No 1 has had a fantastic campaign on the dirt this spring, but we are not quite confident about her grass court success since she has not achieved a good result on the fastest surface even in her career.
Elina never managed to pass the first obstacle in her two appearances in Birmingham. She’ll have a nice chance in 2017 when she will be a massive favourite in the opening round as the second seed, but we’ll back the Brit to make it tough for her and chase Watson to win a set at 4/5 as the top betting prediction.
