Johanna Konta vs. Heather Watson, Nottingham R2 Prediction

?? Nature Valley Open, Nottingham R2 Prediction
?? (4) Johanna Konta vs. ?? Heather Watson

I’m going to side with Konta here in the battle of the Brits. This is a match-up that should suit Konta because Konta does most things better than Watson. Importantly, it is Konta who has more firepower from the baseline and a far stronger serve. On grass, where breaks of serve are more difficult to achieve, Watson’s weak serve will come under pressure too often to give her a real chance in this match, whilst Konta is very assured behind her own serve on this surface. Expect Konta to be too strong.

Prediction: Johanna Konta to defeat Heather Watson in 2 sets
