Although Watson was not seeded under the first number at the tournament in Monterrey, but she can be considered one of the shadow favorites of the championship. The fact is that a couple of days ago she won the tournament in Abierdo. Of course, in that championship there were no coolest rivals, but it’s still nice to win. Now there is Svitolina, Comte and the rest, so it will only be more interesting.

The start of the season was completely failed, so now Tatjana Maria has little playing practice. Only three matches were played, all of which ended in defeat, and only one managed to win one set. It was in a game with opponents who are significantly lower in the ranking of world tennis.
So, even though last year at this tournament we managed to get into the quarter-finals, it will be a surprise if this time at least we can overcome the qualification matches. Tatjana Maria demonstrates an extremely weak level because there is no such aspect of the game in which there would be no problems. And with the filing, problems began, and the reception worsened, so that the marriage is visible around.
Tatjana Maria does not feel the backline, and she cannot close the area near the net simply because of poor speed. What happened in the offseason is not clear, so it is hoped that with an increase in playing practice the situation will improve, so Tatjana Maria will not look so hopeless in all matches.
At the moment, Heather Watson is one of the “dark horses” of this tournament, because this season there was no participation in other competitions of such a high class. Often these were simple Challengers, where there were enough opponents from the third and fourth hundred of the world tennis rating.
How Heather Watson will behave in a match with a more serious opponent is not yet clear, because it is unlikely to be able to set your own pace and fully control the game, as was the case in all previous fights. In past seasons, there was not enough stability for a successful performance, and now Heather Watson has so far shown only a good first serve, but no skilled defense and first-class technical skills have been noticed so far.
In addition, Heather Watson plays poorly on the net, and also often allows the loss of concentration. This tournament is home, so there is hope that Heather Watson will be more thoroughly prepared for the fight.

Tatjana Maria vs Heather Watson Predictions
At the same tournament that Watson took, Maria reached only the second round, after which she flew from the Russian Potapova. And this time she is again considered an outsider, and explicit. But let’s be honest – Watson is far from a top tennis player who will not give anything to create for her rival.
- Our prediction: Heather Watson Will Win.
