16 wins in her last 20.
15 of them on the clay but now we are on the grass. Jo who is ranked back at 18 in the world following an excellent clay court season decided not to play Nottingham with it being so close to the conclusion of her clay court season so is opening her grass season in Birmingham.
Jo’s start could not have gone much better.
Her first round opponent was Anett Kontaveit who is having a good year and is super dangerous from the baseline.
The Estonian is coached by British coach who is the former coach of Ana Ivanovic and is the Father in Law to Andy Murray.
Her battle with Johanna Konta didn’t last as long as she would have hoped for as the British number one saw off Anett with a very comprehensive 6-4 6-2 victory as she advanced to the second round in Birmingham and will be back in action on Wednesday!
