"I'm very pleased with that win, I knew it wasn't going to be easy," said Watson.
"I've never played her before but I knew she is a great player and wasn't going to give me any free points. I played well today."
Of her upcoming meeting with Wimbledon quarter-finalist Maria Kirilenko of Russia, Watson stated, "She's been a top player for a long time. "I know she hits the ball hard. Typical Russian girl, tries to overpower and blast the ball. So I'm just going to play my game."
