Kristina Mladenovic vs. Heather Watson, Eastbourne R1 Prediction

Nature Valley International, Eastbourne R1 Prediction
?? Kristina Mladenovic vs. ?? (wc) Heather Watson

I’m going to side with Watson here in a match-up between two of the tour’s biggest disappointments in recent times. Both of these two have really struggled over the last 12 months, neither are high on confidence at the moment. On grass, whilst both are low on confidence, I favour Watson because of her greater consistency from the baseline. Watson likes to play against big hitters, especially on a quick surface.

Prediction: Heather Watson to defeat Kristina Mladenovic in 3 sets
