Watson beats world no. 35 to reach last eight in Luxembourg

Heather Watson recorded her biggest win since Wimbledon as she beat the world number 35, Anett Kontaveit, 6-4 6-4 to progress to the quarter-finals of the Luxembourg Open.

The Guernsey star will now play Belgium’s Elise Mertens, ranked three placed below Kontaveit, as she looks to build on her best run since July.

Watson had gone seven tournaments without a main draw win, but will take some much-needed confidence from two straight sets victories already this week.
