HEATHER WATSON avoided making it a clean sweep of failure for Britain’s women on day one of Wimbledon and she resumes against Caroline Garcia today in a final-set decider.
Watson is out to 23-20 at Betfair to make round two while her French opponent is 4-5 at Unibet. Another home favourite, Laura Robson, is badly short of match practice after a long injury lay-off and is 9-5 at BetVictor to beat Evgeniya Rodina, the Russian world No.101 who is 9-20 at BetVictor.
Eugenie Bouchard has been playing so badly in recent months she could’ve passed for a Brit but she was runner-up at Wimbledon last year and is hoping to recapture that form. She is 3-10 at Stan James to see off the world No.117 Ying-Ying Duan who Boylesports make a 29-10 shot.
