Heather Watson reached the BNP Paribas Open second round at Indian Wells with a nervy win over German Julia Goerges.

Heather Watson secured a nervy 6-4 5-7 6-3 win over Julia Goerges to make it through to the second round at Indian Wells.

Watson served for the match at 5-3 in the second set, before losing five games in a row as Goerges levelled the match.

The German then broke in the decider but Watson rallied to claim victory, setting up a second-round meeting with Camila Giorgi.

It was just British No.1 Watson’s second win since lifting the title in Hobart at the beginning of the year.

“I was definitely a bit nervous today and it showed,” said Watson. “But I found the right way to finish the match.”
