THE PREDICTION

This all-British clash in the US Open first round between Heather Watson and Johanna Konta will get plenty of headlines in the media but there is every chance this match is somewhat one-sided. Konta reached the semi-final last week at the Western & Southern Open before losing to eventual winner Victoria Azarenka but that was an excellent warm-up for this event. Konta has won all three previous meetings against Watson and after reaching the quarter-finals last year, she will have high hopes of going far once again this time around. Her compatriot Watson has never won a match at the US Open with eight first-round exits, and she is destined for another straight-sets loss here too.
