Heather Watson booked her place in the semi-finals of the Coupe Banque Nationale with a straight-sets victory over Rebecca Marino.

The British number three needed just 72 minutes on court to seal a 6-3 6-4 win and set up a meeting with Pauline Parmentier in the final four in Quebec.

Watson began the match strongly, breaking on her opponent’s first service game to go 2-0 up.

The Canadian wildcard rallied to level the match a game later, but was broken again as the Briton edged ahead 4-2.

Watson needed just one break of serve in the second set – and did not face any break points against her own serve – to take the win on her first match point.
