Day Two will see rising star Jodie Burrage go head-to-head with Heather Watson for what will be an eagerly anticipated clash in the women’s league. Burrage impressed throughout the summer series of UK events, while Watson comes in as the top seed and looking to build momentum for next year. Elsewhere, Naomi Broady returns to action against Beth Grey.
