Heather Watson wins after injury comeback

WIN: Watson (PA)

HEATHER WATSON has enjoyed a triumphant return from injury with a win in Cagnes-sur-Mer in France.

The 21-year-old British player managed to defeat Italy’s Giulia Gatto-Monticone in two sets 6-4 7-6 (8-6) at the clay court event.

The UK number three was making her return to action following a spell on the sidelines due to a shoulder injury she sustained during a first-round loss at the Sony Open in Miami in March.

Ranked number 122 in the world, Watson has enough in her game to overcome her opponent, who is ranked world number 215.

Watson endured a miserable 2013 with illness and injury, and she will hope her latest win is the start of a positive run of results.
