Result: Heather Watson beaten by Angelique Kerber at Miami Masters

Great Britain's Heather Watson goes down in three sets to 13th seed Angelique Kerber in the Miami Masters second round.

Great Britain's top-ranked female Heather Watson has been beaten in the second round of the Miami Masters by 13th seed Angelique Kerber.

The first set was played yesterday and it was Kerber who led 7-5 entering today's action after Watson failed to take advantage of two set points.

Watson got off to the ideal start upon the resumption, winning the first eight points to open up an early 2-0 lead, but it was soon 3-2 to Kerber as the German got her act together.

However, Watson then took over by winning four games in a row to level the match at one set apiece and force a decider.

Kerber took the initiative to race into to a 5-1 lead, but Watson then won three games in a row, including two breaks of serve, to restore parity.

She had to consolidate the last break-back, but was not able to do so as Kerber squeezed through to the last 32, where she will meet 24th seed Svetlana Kuznetsova.
