WTA Eastbourne

The best field of the week is clearly on show at WTA Eastbourne where a host of former champions, Grand Slam winners/finalists and former number one's take their place in the draw. Two years ago Petra Kvitova reached the final of Eastbourne and went on to win Wimbledon two weeks later. The Overrule will be hoping Kvitova can go one better than 2011 in Eastbourne this year and continue that form into Wimbledon where we have already backed her each-way at 14/1.

Kvitova's first real test could come in the form of Maria Kirilenko - who beat Kvitova at the 2012 Olympics on grass at Wimbledon - in the last eight before a potential meeting with Li Na in the last four. Agnieszka Radwanska heads the betting at the top of the draw and could face a Wimbledon semi-final rematch with Angelique Kerber in the last four this coming week. Kerber reached the final of Eastbourne in 2012 and had multiple match points against eventual champion Tamira Paszek.

This should be a really good event to watch as the week progresses and Kvitova is a decent price to win a first title at this tournament and head on to Wimbledon in good spirits.

The Overrule will back Kvitova with two points at 11/2 to win outright.

2* Petra Kvitova win Eastbourne at 11/2 (Bet 365)
