Guernsey's Heather Watson won through to the main draw of the $50,000 Saguenay event in Canada by winning her qualifier on a tie-break on Monday.

Watson beat Latvian Alina Jerjomina 7-5 2-6 7-6, taking the third-set tie-break 7-5 in the final qualifying round.

In the main draw she will meet 21-year-old Canadian Valerie Tetreault, who is the tournament second seed and world number 133.

The hard-court surface they will play on is a favourite with both players.

Watson received a bye in the first round of qualifying and defeated 17-year-old Canadian Priscila Nunez 6-0 6-1 to reach the third and final round.

The Guernsey teenager is on a great run of form after winning the US Open girls' singles title at Flushing Meadows.
