Tennis Betting: Robson and Watson crash out of WTA Aegon International

Laura Robson’s tennis betting fans were disappointed to see that her Eastbourne campaign ended after the player suffered a 6-4 6-4 loss to Caroline Wozniacki in the WTA Aegon International’s second round.
And fellow Briton Heather Watson, who makes very good tennis odds, followed out of the competition, as Russia’s Elena Vesnina defeated her in three sets.
Tennis betting fans saw that Robson, British No 1, was in action against Wozniacki only three weeks after losing to her at the French Open.
However, in Paris the 19-year-old player was not able to take advantage of the Dane’s bad form and on the south coast she was not able to make amends.
Robson, training with temporary coach Miles Maclagan for what will be her 11th appearance in a Grand Slam, continued where she left off after beating on Tuesday Ukrainian qualifier Yuliya Beygelzimer.
In the opening set, she outplayed Wozniacki but ended up making too many unforced errors.
In the ninth game the decisive moment came, with a pair of double faults in quick succession, which let Wozniacki break for 5-4 and then serve for the set.
And tennis betting fans saw that the pattern continued in the second set’s first game, with three consecutive errors helping Wozniacki come 40-15 from behind, breaking her opponent.
Robson hit back, showing good composure, breaking back in the fourth game and making it 2-2.
However, in the ninth game the 2008 Wimbledon girls’ singles champion was eventually undone as Wozniacki broke again on her way to a win.
“You have to look at the positives ahead of next week,” said Robson. “I’m going to get back to Wimbledon and have a good couple of days’ practice before the first round.”
In the meantime, tennis betting fans saw that Watson, British No 2, was defeated by Vesnina 6-1 3-6 6-2.
Watson’s Russian opponent broke her in just the third game, and the 21-year-old was unable to recover in the first set as she went down 6-1.

Watson showed exceptional strength and character to take the second set, but in the deciding set was undone.
Vesnina quickly moved into a 5-0 lead with very good tennis odds after converting two break points before she closed out the decider at 6-2.
