Result: Heather Watson makes Cincinnati main draw

Heather Watson beats Shahar Peer in straight sets to qualify for the main draw of the Cincinnati Open.

Heather Watson has qualified for the main draw of the Cincinnati Open after she defeated Shahar Peer in the final qualifying round.

The British number one enjoyed a run to the last 16 in Montreal last week to move into the top 50 of the world rankings, and she has continued her fine run of form by outclassing the world number 116.

Peer secured an early break of serve in the first set to lead 3-1 before Watson won five games in a row to edge closer to victory.

It was one-way traffic in the second as Watson won another six successive games to see out a 6-3 6-0 win.
