Heather Watson v Kaja Juvan | H2H: First Meeting

Having hit a little form in Cincinnati, Heather Watson ended up retiring in her next match in Chicago and is still in need of some confidence against Kaja Juvan, as she bids to make the second round for the first time.

Playing Styles & Prediction

Watson has been a stalwart of British tennis, but the fact she has never made it past the first round here shows that maybe time will be running out. She has introduced more aggression into her game over the years to compete with harder hitters, and she has the ability to mix up her game from attack to defence, with solid court coverage and net skills.

Over the net will be an equally diverse game style, so we should expect to see some nifty angles and dropshots at play.

Had Watson been able to put a string of matches together in Chicago, she would have been a decent contender, but it is worrying that she had to withdraw with an injury – and still needs confidence.

Prediction: Juvan in three sets.
