Set for a third consecutive appearance in Perth, Watson is hoping it will be third-time lucky as she aims to win Great Britain’s first Hopman Cup title. Watson prefers hard courts and boasts wins over Daria Gavrilova, Sabine Lisicki and Casey Dellacqua in Perth.
The 24-year-old won her third career WTA title in Monterrey during 2016, but her biggest highlight came at Wimbledon when she teamed up with Finland’s Henri Kontinen to scoop the mixed doubles title. She was the first British woman to win the title in 29 years.
