THERE’S home interest in the Eastbourne quarter-finals today but it’s not British No.1 Heather Watson after she was sent packing by Sloane Stephens.
Watson was upstaged by compatriot Johanna Konta who followed up her career-best win by claiming another scalp, knocking out 14th seed Garbine Muguruza. The British No.2 now faces Belinda Bencic today and is 15-8 at Boylesports for a third shock in a row while the Swiss is 1-2 at Sportingbet.
Stephens takes on Daria Gavrlivoa, title favourite Caroline Wozniacki is up against Andrea Petkovic and Agnieszka Radwanska versus Tsvetana Pironkova completes the last-eight line-up.
At the ATP Nottingham, pick of the quarter-final tussles looks to be Sam Querrey against Gilles Simon and there’s also the final day of Wimbledon qualifiers at Roehampton.
Elsewhere today is the likes of rugby league – Hull KR taking on Catalan Dragons – plus county cricket and Major League Baseball. As always post your tips and chat here and good luck if you’re having a flutter.
