2015 Aegon International

Sunday Qualifying Preview: All eyes on Gavrilova

Daria Gavrilova, who annihilated former British #1 Laura Robson in the 1st Qualifying Round, is one step away from the main draw.

The world #41 faces New Zealand’s Marina Erakovic stands between the Russian reaching the 1st Round at Devonshire Park.

With 5’5″ Gavrilova, a 2015 Italian Open semi-finalist as a Qualifier, in formidable form to thrash Robson in front of her home fans then the Erakovic will fear the 21-year-old as will the main draw players.

Seven other final Qualifying matches take place. German Tatjana Maria, a shock winner over compatriot Julia Goerges, faces Australian Jarmila Gajdosova.

Romania Alexandra Dulgheru, an easy victor over Brit Naomi Cavaday, will tackle Japan’s Kurumi Nara.

Slovak Magdalena Rybarikova has a showdown against China’s Saisai Zheng, who despatched Brit Emily Webley-Smith. Slovenian Polona Hercog comes up against Serb Aleksandra Krunic.

A trio of Americans – Lauren Davis, Irina Falconi and Christina McHale –  face Slovak Ajla Tomljanovic, Klara Koukalova and Romanian sensation Monica Niculescu respectively.
