Watson and Konta go for glory in Monterrey
Winning her first title since 2016, Heather Watson became only the second player in WTA history to win titles at both Acapulco and Monterrey (which she won four years ago). The Brit will break back into the Top 50 by beating in the final match the 17-year-old Leylah Fernandez, the youngest Canadian to reach a WTA singles final in 34 years since Helen Kelesi at 1986 Tokyo [Japan Open].
The winner will face No.2 seed Johanna Konta or Kim Clijsters. The Belgian, landed on Friday with seven bags and part of their family, continues her comeback this week as a wildcard in her second professional tournament back since 2012. The Brit aims to improve her quarter-final loss against Donna Vekic in the sixth chapter of an intriguing rivalry.
