Heather Watson beat Yanina Wickmayer in straight sets at the Luxembourg Open to record her first main draw victory since Wimbledon.

The British number two won 6-2 6-1 to set up a second-round meeting with world number 35 Anett Kontaveit.

Watson reached round three at the All England Club in July, but had failed to go beyond the first round at seven tournaments since.

Watson and Kontaveit faced each other for the first time in Switzerland earlier this year when the Estonian won in straight sets.
