Playing Styles & Prediction

We all know that Watson has the game that can suit the grass – she has the ability to switch defence with attack and has included a lot more aggression to her serving and her game, and although results have not been great, she has a better record on the surface than the German.

However, if anyone thinks this will be an easy encounter, prepare for the customary rollercoaster, as Watson takes the long way round but should come out on top. A confidence win would be good here.

Prediction: Watson in three sets.
