?? 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.
