Magdalena Frech faces her second Brit this tournament, and with a 0-3 record in grass quarter-finals, the Pole has only gone deeper at a WTA 125k earlier this year.
Jodie Burrage lifted her level and made the most of bang the home crowd favourite and she has had to work for her position here, battling for three hours in one match and having to come from 1-4 down against third seed Magda Linette.
The pair met back when they were teenagers, in Surbiton back in 2017, but Burrage could be on a roll here.
Harriet Dart is in some good form at the moment, having reached the quarter-final in straight sets. Now in her third grass quarter-final she is facing a tough task against the new British No. 1 Katie Boulter.
The wildcard had to come from 1-3 down against Daria Singur but finds herself 0-4 in WTA quarter-finals, again with all of them on the grass but enjoyed a run to the Surbiton semi-final. She leads their head-to-head at ITF level.
Prediction: Boulter in three sets.
Heather Watson v Viktorija Golubic | H2H: Tied at 1-1
Viktorija Golubic has turned around a lacklustre 2023 where she had only had one main draw win at a WTA tour level but is not to be underestimated on grass. She made it to the semi-final last year in Nottingham and reached the quarter-final in Surbiton last week.
Heather Watson is finally enjoying some much-needed success, as she has been dithering around the lower reaches of the world top 200 and needs to be much higher if she wants to be in the mix at tour events. She has stormed through qualifiers to the quarter-final without dropping a set, and will revel in the crowd support, especially as she will be the match before Andy Murray and the crowds will be gathering for hopefully a clean sweep of British success on Centre Court.
